Are You At Risk for Periodontal Disease? Part 2
What You Should Know:
• Risk factors such as diabetes and smoking are far more potent than others such as faulty dental work and missed hygiene appointments.
• All risk factors are not created equal. The greater your risk, the more likely you are to have a periodontal infection in your lifetime, in some cases severe.
• Periodontal disease is transmissible through the saliva.
• Modifying your level of personal risk, whenever possible, is essential to successful treatment outcomes.
