Periodontitis, or Pyorrhea, is a disease involving inflammation of the gingiva, which, often persisting unnoticed for many years in a patient, can result in loss of clinical periodontal attachment between the teeth and the surrounding alveolar bone.

Symptoms may include the following:
  • occasional redness or bleeding of gums while brushing teeth, using dental floss or biting into hard food;
  • occasional gum swellings that recur;
  • halitosis, or bad breath, and a persistant bad taste in the mouth;
  • gingival recession, resulting in apparent lengthening of teeth;
  • deep pockets between the teeth and the gums;
  • loose teeth, in the later stages.
Daily oral hygiene measures to prevent periodontal disease include:

  • brushing properly on a regular basis (at least twice daily);
  • flossing daily and using interdental brushes , as well as cleaning behind the last tooth in each quarter;
  • using an antiseptic mouthwash
  • regular dental check-ups and professional teeth cleaning as required.
Dental check-ups serve to monitor the person's oral hygiene methods and levels of attachment around teeth, identify any early signs of periodontitis, and monitor response to treatment.
