Parodontosis is a chronic disease of the degenerative nature. It lacks an inflammatory process, which may sometimes occur at the terminal stage. This diseases is regarded as a form of periodontitis at individuals who have reduced immunity against microbes of the plaque. During clinical examination, we can find a pale gingiva with shallow pockets, loose teeth, especially at the molar area, that does not correspond to an X-ray finding. It affects mostly young individuals before age of 30, who practice a good oral hygiene. As the disease progresses, true pockets get deeper and an inflammation appears, so that the finding is the same as for periodontitis.
