University of Buffalo participates in national periodontal study
The University at Buffalo is a part of a major study on periodontal disease. UB distinguished professor of periodontics Dr. Robert Genco is the principal investigator for the Buffalo Clinical Center. WBFO's Eileen Buckley reports on the study, "Biomarkers of Periodontal Disease Progression." Biomarkers are inflammatory markers," Genco said. Genco says periodontal disease is an infection and leads to the loss of the soft tissue. If untreated it can create tooth loss or other health issues.
