Periodontics is a dental specialty in charge of the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of gum disease. Its treatments are focused on curing periodontal diseases, gingivitis and periodontitis, caused by the bacteria that accumulate around the teeth.

Dr Holmes Ortega

Specialists in periodontics

The primary objective of our specialists at Dr. Holmes Ortega Clinics is to try to preserve the tooth and that is why it is very important to treat periodontal disease from the beginning: proper brushing of the teeth after every meal, oral hygiene and regular check-ups with the dentist will prevent the disease.




There are several signs and symptoms that may indicate the presence of periodontal disease.

  • Bleeding gums: Bleeding gums, especially during brushing or flossing.
  • Red or swollen gums: Healthy gums should look pink and firm.
  • Gum recession: This can lead to tooth sensitivity and changes in the appearance of the gums and teeth.
  • Persistent bad breath: Bacteria that accumulate in periodontal pockets can produce an unpleasant odor.
  • Tooth mobility: If you notice that your teeth are loose or shifting, it may be a sign of advanced periodontal disease.
  • Presence of pus: This indicates an active infection and requires urgent dental treatment.




The treatments for this disease are dental cleaning, scaling and root planing, antibiotic therapy and periodontal surgery. 


Important Fact

Although it is not always given the importance it deserves, a slight bleeding of the gums or a slight irritation are signs to be taken into account. Untreated gingivitis leads to periodontitis, a very aggressive disease that causes tooth loss. While the damage of gingivitis can be slowed down with dental prophylaxis, the cure of periodontitis requires more advanced treatment.
