The American Academy of Periodontology’s risk assessment test will help you see if you are at risk for having or developing periodontal (gum) disease. Recent research from the Centers for Disease Control indicates that 64 million adults have some form of periodontal disease. Many of them do not know it!
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.
