Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Periodontitis is an inflammatory disease of bacterial aetiology, leading to the destruction of the anatomical structures supporting the teeth, bone loss, and, eventually, to tooth loss. It is one of the main causes of tooth loss in industrialized countries. Analogously, peri-implantitis is an irreversible inflammatory disease, affecting both soft and hard peri-implant tissue compartments, with consequent loss of osseointegration.

Periodontal bacteria present in the oral cavity can enter the bloodstream and influence systemic diseases such as muscle diseases, intestinal inflammation, metabolic disorders, cancer, nervous system diseases such as Alzheimer's disease, systemic endocrine diseases such as diabetes, immune system diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, and atherosclerosis.

Therefore, correct management of periodontitis is very important, and it requires adequate knowledge of the pathogenesis, primary aetiology, risk factors, and treatment protocols.

The diagnosis of periodontal disease should be clear and simple so that everyone can identify it, and in this regard, various protocols have been proposed. The current diagnosis is based on the recent classification of 2017.

The principal management is based on the removal of parodontogenic bacteria, and modern treatments have been proposed.

Different approaches have been proposed, and in this Special Issue, we would like to illustrate all the latest news in the field of periodontal treatment.

Dr. Francesco D’Ambrosio
Guest Editor
