It is a field of dentistry that deals with the characteristics of supporting dental tissues, as well as diseases and conditions that affect them. Supporting tissues consist of the cementum (a hard dental structure surrounding the root), the alveolar bone (a bone structure where teeth are held), the periodontium (fibres placed in different directions to form a connection between the tooth and alveolar bone; they suppress forces, pass them on the bone, and stimulate), and gingiva (gums surrounding the bone structures).
Periodontal disease is caused by various orthodontic irregularities, bad prosthetic restorations, inadequate fillings, dental calculus, improper dental hygiene. The main cause of the periodontal disease is considered to be a dental plaque that leads to gingivitis. Basic interventions in dentistry for treating and preventing diseases of the supporting dental apparatus are: removing the dental calculus with a device, removing the soft plaque with airbrushes, toothbrushes, rubber cups, polishers, and fixing the periodontal pockets with curettes, flap surgery.
