The British Society for Periodontology has launched its gum health awareness campaign for 2017. It is part of an annual drive to raise awareness of gum health among health professionals and the general public throughout Europe. 

Periodontitis or gum disease has links with many systemic conditions such as Alzheimer’s, cardio issues and diabetes. For 2017, the BSP is focusing on the huge diabetes community in the UK to help create an understanding of the symptoms, risks and treatment available for people with gum disease or diabetes and how each condition can link to the other.
