The periodontium refers to the structures in the mouth that function to support the teeth and the gums, the periodontal ligaments, the cementum, and the alveolar bone. These structures have to remain healthy because together they provide stability for the teeth within the jaw bone. A few symptoms of a possible periodontal problem are bleeding and receding gums.

In more severe cases, gum and bone grafting procedures may be necessary, but only if such procedures can guarantee success.
