Periodontal diseases are a group of diseases that affect the tissues surrounding and holding the teeth in the jaws. They are diseases of inflammatory nature and infectious cause.
When the inflammatory process affects deep periodontal tissues, destruction of bone and ligament supporting and holding teeth occurs. This degree of involvement we called periodontitis and is accompanied by swelling, bleeding, loosening of parts and tooth loss.
To solve periodontitis a thorough clean of the teeth, the gum and tooth area under the gum is required to remove all plaque. After the treatment, the gums can again adhere to the teeth and can save the teeth that would of otherwise have fallen out by loosening.

Why is it necessary to fill a cavity?
A cavity forms cavities in the teeth which may affect the nerve. This can cause pain, swelling, mobility, thermal sensitivity, boils, etc. All this leads to tooth loss.
This treatment involves removal of the vascular-nervous package located inside the tooth which is the cause of dental pain.
Using special instruments the inside of the tooth is cleaned free from infection. Inside each tooth there are a network of vessels that are distributed within the tooth forming ductwork.
Endodontics aims to clean each duct and enable the tooth to be suitable for subsequent restoration.
