Gerodontology and Periodontology

Gerodontology is the study of the dentition and dental problems in older patients which involves the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of dental injuries, diseases or defects. The physiologic, pathologic and psychological changes in geriatric patients effect the dental treatment. Periodontology deals with the study of supporting structures of teeth and related diseases. The periodontium includes the gingiva, alveolar bone, cementum and periodontal ligament. The discovery of the bacteria which plays an important role in the periodontal diseases and the pathogenesis of periodontitis is a complex and multifactorial topic.
