The Forsyth Institute, a dental research and teaching organization, has landed a four-year $20.7 million grant from the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR) to apply to three research projects aimed at the understanding and treatment of periodontal disease.

Also known as gum disease, periodontal disease affects 40 percent of U.S. adults, Forsyth officials reported today, and the disease has been linked to diabetes, metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular disease, some cancers and pre-term birth.
