Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Periodontal and peri-implant diseases are crucial concerns in oral health all over the world. They are characterized by multifactorial etiology, including the disruption of the oral microbiota, mechanical stress, and systemic disorders, such as diabetes mellitus. The removal of microbial pathogens is imperative in current periodontal treatment. In addition, a variety of surgeries have been widely performed, such as the application of biomaterials to address periodontal defects and to achieve esthetic periodontal tissue appearance. However, genuine periodontal tissue regeneration has not yet been established. Understanding the onset background, intercellular crosstalk, and genomic regulation is essential to elucidate the process of periodontal regeneration. This Special Issue summarizes the basic and clinical knowledge of periodontal/peri-implant tissue regeneration and highlights the potential of next-generation treatments for periodontal/peri-implant diseases.
