Periodontitis - A Real Danger And Threat

I saw an interesting article on this topic at medical express site.

One of  the article's premises is that many people are completely unaware they have gum disease.  That's something I've been talking about here on this site for quite some time.

They were mentioning that in the 18-34 year old age group - only about 41% that had periodontal disease realized it.  In higher age groups that number fell to as low as 26% of the people!  Wow!

Estimates of how many people have gum disease vary.  But many dental professionals in the US will tell you that about 75% of people have at least some gum disease right now.

Being the number one cause of tooth loss as well as the low awareness of this problem makes this a rather serious disease.  Yet, it is a silent one. 

If you are interested in keeping your teeth for a lifetime or protecting those of your family members, perhaps it would be a good idea to read a book that explains everything in simple terms.   I believe that part of the problem is that people just don't 'get it'.  Nor do they realize just how big a threat this is to them.

I wrote the book:  What You Should Know About Gum Disease : A Layman's Guide to Fighting Gum Disease  - to help people understand what it is and what they might be able to do about it.   I think, given the circumstances, every family should have a copy of this book.

Therefore, when you get your copy, get enough copies to give out to everyone you know.  :) 

I hope the article at the medical express website will help people figure this out.  But sadly enough, I know that many people, doctors included have tried to stress this problem to the public for a long time.   The results have been dismal so far.

Are you ready to listen?
