Until now, variations in protocols and definitions of periodontal disease across the world have hindered the efficient international exchange of scientific literature.
A group of experts - the Joint EU/USA Periodontal Epidemiology Working Group - is now proposing a solution to this problem: a set of guidelines which will allow periodontal scientists to compare the prevalence of periodontal disease across different studies, population groups, and countries. These guidelines, once accepted by the international periodontal community, will help deliver consistent reporting of future epidemiological studies concerning periodontitis.
