It is an inflammatory disease of bacterial origin affecting the tooth supporting tissue.

The most common types of periodontal disease are periodontitis and gingivitis:

- Gingivitis involves inflammation of the gums only, and there is no presence of loss of bone supporting the teeth and it is relatively reversible. If this situation is not addressed, it could spread to the next periodontal disease.

There is also Periimplantitis, which is the same as above, but ii affects implants.
