Moderate or Severe Periodontal Disease
Data from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention shows periodontal disease is highly prevalent amongst the population of America. It estimates nearly half the population aged 30 or older has mild, moderate or severe periodontal disease. This figure increases to 70% of adults aged 65 or older. Periodontal disease is an inflammatory condition that affects the gums, the ligaments holding teeth in place, and the bone surrounding teeth. If it isn’t treated then it can lead to tooth loss. Numerous research studies have also linked periodontal disease to other common chronic inflammatory diseases which include diabetes (see: diabetes and periodontal disease) and cardiovascular disease (new study: Periodontal disease and heart attacks).
