Enhanced Verifiable CPD from the
University of Birmingham


Periodontal disease affects the gingiva, alveolar bone and supporting tissues of the teeth.

Although most individuals suffer gingival inflammation from time to time, studies indicate wide variation in susceptibility to periodontal disease and suggest that whilst 80 % of the population will develop some signs of the disease, about 10 % of the population are at high risk of developing severe destructive disease. This group is at greatest risk of losing teeth through periodontal disease.
