Periodontal disease

Periodontal disease
Periodontal disease is the term used for all pathologies that affect the periodontal region, the most common of which is periodontitis. This develops when a process begins to affect the periodontal ligament and alveolar bone. Many factors are involved in periodontal disease and, although the large majority are related to the action of microorganisms, it may also be due to other problems such as occlusion, systemic disorders (for example, nutritional deficiencies), endocrine disorders, cardiovascular disease, immunodeficiencies, and even hereditary factors (2)(4)(41).
