Periodontitis is a serious disease that, according to the British Society of Periodontology, affects around 10% of the population.

Apart from the obvious pain and distress it can cause to patients, it is also increasingly being linked to systemic conditions including heart disease, premature birth and diabetes.

Periodontal disease is still being under-diagnosed, and in recent years there has been an increase in the number of patients seeking legal compensation against GDPs for failure to diagnose and treat the condition.
