Precision medicine is a novel approach that predicts or diagnoses diseases before their onset. It comprises treatments that target the needs of individual patients on the basis of genetic, biomarker, phenotypic or psychosocial characteristics. One of the possible candidates for precision medicine is microRNAs (miRNAs). Recent studies reported that miRNAs can be biomarkers for cancer diagnosis and prognosis.
Periodontitis progression results in periodontal attachment loss and/or tooth loss. Several miRNAs were suggested to predict periodontal disease. However, due to differences in methodology, no specific miRNAs were identified to correctly predict the initiation or progression of periodontitis.
The aim of this Special Issue is to present the latest information regarding the application of miRNAs in predicting periodontitis. The miRNAs for the other diseases, such as oral mucosal diseases or hard tissue diseases will be discussed.
