This clinically oriented text provides the essential information needed to understand periodontal diseases and deliver effective treatment. Written in user-friendly style, it explains the biology of the periodontium in health and disease, gives detailed instructions on patient examination, and discusses various local and systemic risk factors. Actual case scenarios illustrate how to interpret clinical evidence, make a diagnosis and develop a treatment plan for the most common forms of disease. Also covered are implant therapy and adjunct treatment procedures that may be needed to enhance periodontal health.

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.

This book aims to provide clinicians with a refined understanding of the biology that underlies periodontal diseases, thereby offering a sound basis for improved clinical decision making with regard to prevention strategies, diagnosis, and therapy. All significant aspects of periodontal pathogenesis are covered, including the roles played by the oral microbiome and biofilms, bacterial virulence factors, cells of the immune system, matrix metalloproteinases, proinflammatory and osteolytic cytokines, genetic factors, and antimicrobial peptides. Periodontal diseases are among the most common infectious diseases in humans, and the primary cause of tooth loss in adults. The functional and esthetic problems associated with these diseases compromise quality of life, and their treatment imposes large financial burdens on national health systems and private patients. Up-to-date knowledge of periodontal pathogenesis is therefore essential for the contemporary clinician. This book, written by experts from Europe and the Americas, delivers such knowledge in an accessible, clinician-friendly way.

Periodontitis is the number one cause of tooth loss in the United States for adults thirty years and older. Periodontal disease affects over seventy-five to eighty percent of adults, and more recently has been found to have major implications for systemic health especially for patients with diabetes and high blood pressure. The goal of Understanding Periodontitis is to give a review on categories of periodontitis, as well as provide a detailed informative resource on diagnosing, categorizing and treating periodontitis. By utilizing illustrations as well as actual pictures of various procedures, it works well also as an interactive informative hand book that dentists, hygienists, as well as dental patients alike will benefit from to better understand periodontal disease.

Periodontal disease affects the mouths of the entire adult population to some degree and causes severe disease in 10 per cent. This is a concise account of the pathological processes involved in periodontal disease, its causes and progression, based on advances in contemporary research. Arational approach to treatment is presented on the basis of these processes. A broad overview of periodontal disease is followed by accounts of the periodontium in health and disease. The book then deals with the micro-organisms implicated in periodontal disease and evaluates their significance. Thehost responses to factors present in dental plaque are discussed, followed by an account of the interactions between bacteria and the host which cause tissue damage. This leads to a consideration of the different clinical manifestations of the disease, including those associated with HIV infection.In the final chapter, a rational approach to treatment is presented, based on an understanding of the disease mechanisms discussed in the book. The biologically-orientated approach is particularly suitable for dental undergraduates, and those preparing for the Fellowship Examinations of the Royal Colleges. It will be also be valuable for every practising dentist who wishes to update their knowledge of this important and developing subject.No other book deals with the aetiology and pathogenesis of periodontal disease in such a comprehensive, yet straightforward way, making extensive use of diagrams and summary tables to make the subject more easily accessible.

Polymicrobial diseases, those involving more than one etiologic agent, are more common than is generally realised and include respiratory diseases, gastroenteritis, conjunctivitis, keratitis, hepatitis, periodontal diseases, multiple sclerosis, renital infections, intra–abdominal infections, and pertussis. This new volume provides an overview of the current knowledge of these mixed infections in both animals and humans and explores the contribution to disease made by interacting and mutually reinforcing pathogens, which may involve bacteria, viruses, or parasites interacting with each other or bacteria interacting with fungi and viruses. The emphasis is on identifying polymicrobial diseases, understanding the complex etiology of these diseases, recognising difficulties in establishing methods for their study, identifying mechanisms of pathogenesis, and assessing appropriate methods of treatments.

'Etiology and Pathogenesis of Periodontal Disease' represents a new concept in periodontology with its pronounced focus on understanding through knowledge rather than presenting the present valid answers. Connections between the diseases in the periodontium and general health are described in detail. Even if periodontal disease is certainly not a generally accepted cause of death, periodontal treatment may obviously save lives.
