Time to take periodontitis seriously

Periodontitis is the most common chronic inflammatory disease seen in humans, affecting nearly half of adults in the United Kingdom and 60% of those over 65 years.1 It is a major public health problem, causing tooth loss, disability, masticatory dysfunction, and poor nutritional status.2 Periodontitis also compromises speech, reduces quality of life,3 and is an escalating burden to the healthcare economy. In the UK alone it was estimated to cost £2.8bn (€3.4bn; $4.6bn) in 2008,4 not including raised all cause mortality, an association that has been noted in several populations.5 Worryingly, the disease is often silent, being present for decades before diagnosis and treatment. It can leave a substantial pathological footprint on multiple organ systems, as well as the oral cavity.
