The term periodontosis describes an infectious form of disease in the tooth socket. As with any other infection, diagnosis is determined by symptoms that include swelling, reddening and bleeding gums, and retraction of gums with a significant loss of soft tissue or bone tissue in the tooth socket.
In the 20th century, periodontosis, like cavities, has become a virtually epidemic disease in dentistry.
