ABSTRACT
The article discusses chemical studies that have been completed regarding periodontal disease. Areas of periodontal disease that were investigated in these studies include disturbances that occur with periodontal disease and the causes of periodontal disease. One discovery that was made in these studies is that variations exist in the rate at which the saliva of patients who suffer from periodontal disease decomposes.
