Periodontics is a specialty of dentistry that is dedicated to prevention, diagnosis and treatment of gum diseases and the supporting tissues of teeth. The most frequent signs of gum disease are inflammation, redness and bleeding when brushing, , as well as receding gums, hypersensitivity to cold temperatures, mobility or separation of teeth, longer teeth, bad breath, dark spaces between the teeth, etc. This type of pathology must be treated as soon as possible as its evolution involves a destruction of the bone that supports the teeth, a loss that may eventually become irreversible, , eventually leading (in advanced cases) to the loss of teeth due to periodontal disease. There are risk groups that should pay special attention to their gum health: smokers, patients experiencing hormonal changes (pregnant, puberty, menstruation or menopause), those with a family history with periodontal disease or general diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, depressed immunity (low defenses), HIV, herpes, or those who have received transplants.
