cause of tooth loss in adults regardless of socio-economic
condition and might have an association with other systemic
diseases, such as, heart attack, stroke, diabetes, preterm low
birth weight, etc. The prevalence and severity of periodontal
diseases vary in between and within different population. These
variation can be explained by age, lifestyle, oral health care,
socio-economic and cultural background. This book provides

about the disease, its etiological and risk factors, and its
prevention and management. This book helps a person how to prevent
the disease simply by adopting an adequate dietary habit,
discarding harmful personal habit, and by proper tooth brushing. It
also helps the general dentist to motivate her/his patient for
taking easy treatment and maintenance measures. A dentist/oral
hygienist or a social worker who deals with the oral health care
for community people may also be benefited with this book for
designing a proper oral health care delivery program.
