Characteristics of Periodontal Disease

Learning Objectives:  

After listening to this podcast, the listener should:

  • Understand the symptoms and characteristics associated with periodontal disease
  • Know how to identify and diagnose periodontal disease in patients

Recent epidemiological research has yielded important information that has improved clinicians' understanding of periodontal disease. Analysis of these results is difficult to interpret, however, due to the variety of diseases, epidemiological measurements and methods, and sample populations under evaluation. The dental professional must perform a meticulous clinical examination in order to recognize the symptoms and effects of inflammation and to determine the differential diagnosis of normal gingiva, gingival infection, and periodontal disease. Early recognition of gingival and periodontal signs may prevent the disease from developing into a more severe condition.
