What is Periodontists?

In periodontitis, gums pull away from the teeth and form spaces (called „pockets”) that become infected.
Bacterial toxins and the body’s natural response to infection starts to break down the bone and connective tissue that hold the teeth in place.
If is not treated, the bones, gums, and tissue that support the teeth are destroyed.
