The Sound of Periodontitis – a great film produced by EFP.

One of the very few things that I miss about clinical practice is helping patients with gum problems to accept that they have a problem. Being the leader of the team in assisting patients to get themselves back to health and then ensuring that they maintained their health was so a source of great satisfaction.

I often felt that my enthusiasm for treating perio was out of step with a lot of my contemporaries, so much so that I remember using the phrase “Periodontitis – the disease that dare not speak it’s name” at one meeting on crown and bridge.

This film, The Sound of Periodontitis, made by the European Federation of Periodontology (EFP), was launched at the recent EuroPerio meeting – I’m sorry I missed the conference as it seems to have been a great few days.

I wish this film had been available for us 25 years ago. Please share.
