It is a type of disease, i think it is something to do with the gum. Definition of periodontal: Refers to the hard and soft tissue, or supporting structures, around the teeth.

Can periodontal disease affect your heart?
The jury is still out on this question. Some studies have suggested there is a link between periodontal disease and heart disease, while other studies have found no such link. Certainly, there is no evidence at this time (2013) that periodontal disease causes heart disease. And there is no evidence that controlling periodontal disease reduces one's risk for heart disease. It is possible that concurrent perio and heart disease is simply co-incidental. Both have similar components, inflammation being one.

What is the treatment of periodontal?
Hi, Generally, very basic line of treatment or the first thing to do in any periodontal disease or condition is oral prophylaxis/ cleaning/ dental scaling. Then the further treatment will be according to the severity or condition of the periodontal disease, which are (in order of less severity to more severity) root planing, deep curettage, flap surgeries with or without bone grafting. Most important thing in periodontal treatment rather in any gums related treatment is maintaining the gum condition after treatment by proper brushing, regular use of antiseptic mouthwash and other things which are specified by dentist after that particular treatment.
