Neglecting oral hygiene can lead to various oral health issues, one of which is periodontal disease.

Periodontics is the branch of dentistry that focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of conditions affecting the gums and supporting structures of the teeth.

Periodontal disease, often referred to as gum disease, affects a significant proportion of the population worldwide. It starts with the accumulation of dental plaque, a sticky film containing bacteria, on the tooth surface. Over time, if left untreated, the plaque hardens and forms tartar, which irritates the gums and causes inflammation.

This inflammation, known as gingivitis, is the initial stage of gum disease. Common signs of gingivitis include red, swollen gums that bleed easily during brushing or flossing.

If gingivitis progresses, it can develop into periodontitis, a more severe form of gum disease. Periodontitis involves the destruction of the bone and connective tissues that support the teeth. As a result, teeth may become loose, and in some cases, tooth loss may occur.

Moreover, research has linked periodontal disease to various systemic conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, respiratory problems, and even premature birth in pregnant women.
