Periodontal disease is the process of irreversible damage to bone and gum around teeth.

Periodontitis is inflammation of the periodontal membrane, a layer around the tooth anchoring it to the jawbone. The inflammation can be due to periodontal disease, and other causes such as a tooth abscess.

Periodontitis is one form of periodontal disease, and can be treated through hygiene and in advanced cases, gum surgery
