Periodontology is a branch of dentistry which studies supporting structures of teeth, diseases and  conditions that affect them. The supporting tissues are known as the periodontium.

Periodontitis is inflamation of the soft tissues around the teeth, characterized by swollen, tender gums.  This can, eventually, lead to the loss of teeth. It begins with the deposition of bacterial plaque on the  teeth below the gum line which irritates and erodes the neighbouring tissue.

So, teeth brushing is very important. Today, more and more young people have had an increase in  periodontal disease. According to a survey, 50% of lost teeth are lost because of periodontal disease. In  other cases, caries is the cause for teeth loss.
