About Periodontal Disease

Periodontal (gum) diseases, including gingivitis and periodontitis, are bacterially-induced chronic inflammatory diseases. Periodontitis affects the gums and bone supporting the teeth and if untreated or improperly treated can lead to tooth loss. Periodontal disease can affect one tooth or several, and is classified as mild, moderate or severe, based on clinical and radiographic evidence of loss of tissues that support the teeth. About a third of adults will have at least three to four teeth affected with moderate periodontal disease. It is well established that individuals who are smokers, have diabetes, or have IL-1 gene variations are at increased risk for more severe and generalized periodontitis. Periodontitis is usually first diagnosed by a dentist. In the U.S. there are over 160,000 dentists who frequently perform diagnostic (86 percent) and preventive (79 percent) procedures. The U.S. dental market is valued at $70 to $96 billion annually, with the average patient spending about $560 per year, over half of this on diagnostic and preventive procedures. Of the 128 million patients who visit a dentist each year, half are in the age range most appropriate for PST risk assessment. Additional information about periodontal disease may be found on the American Academy of Periodontology website at www.perio.org.

The PST Genetic Test was developed f
