a. The presence of periodontal disease is measured clinically several ways. One way is to calculate loss of periodontal attachment.

Figure 5-3 shows that investments loss of 4 mm or more affects approximately half of adults aged 50 to 59 [2].

B. Age from 60 to 69, less than half of the adult population in the USA has kept 21 teeth or more (Fig. 5-4) [2].
