New Research Supports Assessing Risk, Preventive Treatment for Periodontal Disease

The American Academy of Periodontology (AAP) supports new research(http://jdr.sagepub.com/content/early/2013/06/05/0022034513492336.full) published online in the Journal of Dental Research confirming the need for careful risk assessment to determine which patients may benefit from additional treatment to prevent periodontal disease.  Periodontal disease impacts over half of the U.S. adult population, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).  The AAP recommends that all patients receive a comprehensive periodontal evaluation once a year to effectively screen and assess risk for disease, and to guide preventive care.
