Periodontology is a branch of science that deals with the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of gum diseases. Diseases that affect gingival and bone tissue and thus cause infection are defined as periodontal diseases. Early diagnosis of periodontal diseases plays an important role in the easy and successful treatment of oral and dental health problems before they progress.
Healthy gums are light pink in color, dull and tense in appearance. Bleeding in such gums almost never occurs. Gingival bleeding is the biggest harbinger of gingival disorders. Even if there is no other problem in the teeth, many tooth loss may occur due to gum disease.
