Periodontics, periodontal disease or periodontitis is an issue that if left untreated and uncontrolled, it keeps advancing until tooth loss

Periodontics is a bacteria-based infection with high destructive capacity if left untreated.

Some of the main symptoms are:

  • Gum bleeding
  • Gum retraction
  • Swelling, bad breath or halitosis
  • Lose teeth

¿Is it important to do check-ups to combat periodontics?

It is of little use to have teeth in perfect condition without a good support for them. However, periodontics has ceased to be a specialty that only deals with gum health to deal with general body health.

There are many studies that show that taking care of the health of the gums, in addition to preventing problems in the mouth, helps reduce the risk of diseases such as diabetes, myocardial or cerebral infarction and premature birth in pregnant women.
