Develop Effective Methods to Prevent Periodontal Diseases

While periodontal diseases are known to lead to many overall health problems, and a host of temporary "cures" are being practiced, little is known about how to prevent them from breaking out and/or frequent recurring. Many mouth wash and tooth pastes claim they can help, but are they really effective? Are they been identified so that some vaccine can be developed? Perhaps NIDCR can provide some clues leading to effective solutions.
