Your colorful flourishes make reading about dental issues much less like studying something I'd rather not know, and more like a treat.... though the vaudeville act has got to go!! :)

Thanks, Dorothy- yah I guess there's a reason that we have reality TV rather than Vaudeville on the airwaves...

Hey, wait a minute- have we really made any progress, then, after all?


This disease really scary me out...

Yes, periodontal disease is rather scary in a way, and yet it can be completely prevented. It's more difficult if a person is in that 15%, but prevention is still possible with diligence and frequent professional recalls. So my advice is, only worry to the extent that it motivates you to take action!

Periodontal disease is truly scary! Anyone can have this disease. So if you see such symptoms, better visit a professional periodontist for some check-ups.

Periodontal procedures are available to stop further dental problems and gum recession. But they are very delicate and need so much of care.
