Millions of people have periodontal disease and don’t know it. You can see if you are at risk for having or developing periodontal diseases by taking a few moments to complete the short questionnaire on The American Academy of Periodontology's website .
Once your answers are submitted, a proprietary calculation determines whether you are at low, medium or high risk and generates a report of your results. This Periodontal Disease Risk Score and the information contained in your report should not be construed as dental advice or as a substitute for a comprehensive evaluation and diagnosis by a qualified practitioner. Rather,this report is intended to help educate patients about common risk factors related to periodontal diseases and to assist in the decision of when referral to a periodontist would be advisable.

If you are at risk for periodontal disease, take action to protect your gums and your health.
 Learn about the causes, types, and treatments of periodontal disease.
 Don't let periodontal disease take away your smile. If you are at risk, consult a periodontist right away – and help save your natural teeth!
 If you've already lost a tooth to periodontal disease, you may be interested in dental implants – the permanent tooth replacement option.
 View online samples of AAP brochures about periodontal disease and your oral health.
