Periodontology deals with the inflammatory reactions of the supporting periodontal tissues, which results in progressive loss of adhesion, loss of facial bone, formation of periodontal pockets and gingival weaving.Clinical findings of periodontitis are the presence of supragingival and subgingival plaque and tartar, oedematous gums with changes in colour, shape, texture and size, bleeding on palpation with the periodontal probe and the detection of periodontal pockets and radiographic bone loss.

The range of applications of periodontology is vast and includes the following:
  • treatment of chronic gingivitis,
  • conservative and surgical treatment of chronic periodontitis,
  • treatment of peri-implant diseases
  • treatment of gingival problems (gingival recession, gingival smile),
  • increase in the volume of the subluxation of the facial crest due to vertical/horizontal bone defects
  • increase in the dimensions of the gums
  • deepening of the scrotal/uloparietal groove,
  • gravel cuttings,
  • surgical lengthening of the nose
