It is a basic condition to visit the Periodontist, who is the specialist in dentistry trained to diagnose and treat periodontal diseases. It should be remembered that we must point out that periodontal disease does not hurt, and therefore the only signs detected are bleeding gums, bad taste, bad breath, longer teeth (recession of gingiva), mobility of dental pieces, the appearance of spaces where before there were weren’t any, the impaction of food between the teeth. All of these signs and symptoms are confirmed by x-rays that detect bone loss.

In smoking patients many of these signs and symptoms are masked by vasoconstriction.
