Risk Factors for Periodontal Disease in Naples, FL & Surrounding Cities

Assessing patients who are at an increased risk is an integral part of diagnosing and treating periodontal disease. In 1996, seven panels of experts from around the world identified key factors that increase a patient’s risk of developing periodontal disease. If you have any of these, see Dr. Hoop for an exam regularly.

The risk factors for gum disease include:

  • Smoking
  • Diabetes
  • Deposits of plaque and/or tartar
  • Poor brushing and flossing habits
  • Previous cases of gum disease
  • Osteoporosis
  • HIV or AIDS
