The Sound of Periodontitis

The patient’s view of gum disease

Gum disease (periodontitis) is the most common cause of tooth loss among adults. Since it is more of a “hidden” threat to oral health, patient information is crucial to create awareness.

 “The Sound of Periodontitis – the Patient’s View of Gum Disease”, first shown at Europerio 8, is a collaboration between the British Society of Periodontology and the British Society for Dental Hygiene and Therapy and led by UCL Eastman Dental Institute with support from the UCL Public Engagement Unit.
