Concerns over periodontal health are increasing at an alarming rate.
To prevent tooth problems or life-threatening complications, about 47.2% of adults, 70.1% of elder folks in the US seek endodontic and periodontal care.
Periodontal (gum) disease often result in receding gums, tooth loss, dental calculus, abscess, inflammation, weakened tissue, pulp, nerve, and bone.
Severe gum diseases also cause major health problems such as dementia, chronic inflammation, aging or even trigger life-threatening complications, such as cancer, HIV infection, heart disease, or diabetes.
The American Academy of Periodontology (AAP) urged people to undergo dental and periodontics treatments to lower the risk of periodontal disease.
