What is a Periodontal Disease?
Periodontal disease, sometimes referred to as gum disease, is a chronic inflammatory disease that impacts the gums and bone that supports the teeth. When left untreated, periodontal disease typically results in significant tooth loss.
We use advanced techniques to diagnose, treat and manage periodontal disease and related conditions as part of maintaining good overall oral health. If needed, Dr. Jana Long will provide comprehensive dental implant care.
The Truth About Periodontal (Gum) Disease
One out of every two American adults aged 30 and over has periodontal disease, according to recent findings from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). A study titled Prevalence of Periodontitis in Adults in the United States: 2009 and 2010 estimates that 47.2 percent, or 64.7 million American adults, have mild, moderate or severe periodontitis, the more advanced form of periodontal disease. In adults 65 and older, prevalence rates increase to 70.1 percent.
This study is published in the Journal of Dental Research, the official publication of the International and American Associations for Dental Research. Because there is such a high prevalence of periodontal disease in the U.S. population, the American Academy of Periodontology encourages yearly comprehensive periodontal evaluations to assess for disease.
