a clinicians guide to systemic effects of periodontal diseases 2016

ronald g. craig

a clinician's guide to systemic effects of periodontal diseases will serve as an ideal, easy-to-use reference for the practicing health professional. it summarizes the latest research on the systemic effects of periodontal diseases, discusses how the results of this research will impact on clinical practice, and aims to help the clinician to answer questions that may be posed by patients, medical colleagues, and the media. a central theme is the contribution of periodontal diseases to systemic inflammation but other mechanisms, such as systemic dissemination of oral pathogens, are also covered. a collaborative approach involving noted investigators in each field and medical colleagues ensures that all chapters are of clinical relevance from both a dental and a medical perspective. the book is also visually engaging, with numerous summary figures and graphics, bullet point tables, and highlight boxes identifying the most clinically significant points.

periodontal disease

andrea mombelli

our understanding of the etiopathology of periodontal disease has changed greatly over the last decade. the huge diversity of species within the microbial biofilm and the enormous multi-layered complexity of the innate, inflammatory and adaptive immune responses generated in response to it warrant study and discussion. comprising reviews from renowned experts in the field, this book presents a comprehensible overview of this exciting and pertinent subject matter. it provides new insights into the structure and composition of subgingival biofilms and the nature of the extracellular matrix. further, a summary of current understanding of subgingival microbial diversity and an overview of experimental models used to dissect the functional characteristics of subgingival communities are presented. other articles discuss the innate cellular and neutrophil responses to the periodontal biofilm. the role of antimicrobial peptides in the host response to biofilm bacteria and modern approaches to nonsurgical biofilm management are also discussed.
finally, this volume addresses advances in antibiotic use and proposes a paradigm shift in the pharmacological approach to periodontal disease management.

molecular biology of periodontium

author: arun kv

periodontics is a specialty that has seen immense growth in recent years, mostly for the better. the foundations of the mechanisms behind the maintenance of periodontal health and disease are being unraveled at a frenetic pace but much work is still required before our understanding is complete. in this scenario, it is imperative that postgraduate students understand the molecular basis of the various homeostatic mechanisms that maintain periodontal health and the alterations they undergo in disease. the habit of textbook reading is so deeply ingrained in us that students are loath to search journals for information that is not readily available to them. it is my earnest hope that this book would help the readers in this regard. the association between scaling and periodontics has, to my mind, outlived its usefulness. this book has been organized on the lines of other great books available in medicine. the topics on tissue engineering and microbiology have been included chiefly to help exam preparation; its source can be easily traced. genetics has focused on specific areas and requires further reading for an in-depth understanding. any suggestions and criticisms (constructive) are most welcome. let us all make a joint effort towards making periodontics attain the pre-eminent position it so richly deserves.

lets try periodontics

let's try periodontics 1by

  • jiads

let’s try periodontics is an educational comic closely based on the original japanese version entitled shisyuchirotte omoshiroi, which was published in japan in october, 2008.

in an effort to offset the confusion that attends modern-day information-explosion in the field of dentistry, i have followed my mentors’ example by explaining, in a very simple way, how long-term predicable results can be obtained in moderate to severe cases of periodontitis.

the true success of the treatments depends on treatment plans during the active treatment phase and the following of established procedures. these are devised to create an oral environment with the least periodontal problems for long-term tissue stability.

this book does not cover all the techniques currently available, but it covers a broad range of treatment options according to the challenges in each oral area. my wish is that young dentists strive to become skilled in a variety of periodontal treatment options to answer the unique needs of each patient. it is my hope that they will perform appropriate 21st-century dental treatments for each patient and, when possible, give comprehensive treatments with a view to long-term oral health.

materials and technology will continue to develop in the future, but treatment goals will not alter, the most critical being the removal of etiologic agents of periodontal disease and the creation of an oral environment for easy cleaning to ensure long-term maintenance.

this is what our patients want. we dentists should strive to attain the treatment results that patients desire, in terms of both health and aesthetics. by adopting the periodontal treatment options that are becoming standard, and that are keeping pace with european and american experts in the field, our patients will then be assured of the best possible treatment.

to encourage specialists to keep upgrading their skills, we have founded jiads to provide ongoing continuing education for dentists in clinical periodontics. for more information, please see the jiads website: http://www.jiads. org/ enquiries are welcome.

i hope that by reading this comic book, young dentists will be inspired to take an interest in periodontal treatment with “dr. fresh” as they practice and gain experience in their clinics.

book description

periodontitis refers to a number of inflammatory diseases affecting the periodontium, that is, the tissues that surround and support the teeth. periodontitis involves progressive loss of the alveolar bone around the teeth, and if left untreated, can lead to the loosening and subsequent loss of teeth. periodontitis is caused by microorganisms that adhere to and grow on the tooth’s surfaces, along with an overly aggressive immune response against these microorganisms. this book reviews research on periodontitis including the role of the th17 pathway in the progression of periodontal disease; an outline of the risk factors relating to the most prevalent chronic periodontal diseases and others.

genetic variants in periodontal health and disease


alexandrina l. dumitrescu, institute of clinical dentistry, university of troms , faculty of medicine, norway ;
junya kobayashi, kyoto university, radiation biology center, do genome repair dynamics, japan

book description

periodontitis is a complex, multifactorial disease and its susceptibility is genetically determined. the present book systematically reviews the evidence of the association between the genetic variants and periodontitis progression and/or treatment outcomes. genetic syndromes known to be associated with periodontal disease, the candidate gene polymorphisms investigated in relation to periodontitis, the heritability of chronic and aggressive periodontitis, as well as common guidelines for association studies are described. this growing understanding of the role of genetic variation in inflammation and periodontal chronic disease presents opportunities to identify healthy persons who are at increased risk of disease and to potentially modify the trajectory of disease to prolong healthy aging. the book represents a new concept in periodontology with its pronounced focus on understanding through knowledge rather than presenting the presently valid answers. connections between genetics and periodontology are systematically reviewed and covered in detail.
