The British Society of Periodontology (BSP) is running a UK campaign in support of Gum Health Awareness Day, launched today, 12 May 2016. Gum disease (periodontitis) is a major public health problem affecting people’s quality of life, with more than 45% of adults in the UK being affected. However, gum disease is preventable and treatable if caught early.
