Periodontitis and Peri-Implant diseases are a plaque-induced inﬂammatory condition that affects the periodontium; it is caused by the adherence to tooth surfaces of pathogenic bacterial species organized in complex communities that form bioﬁlms.
Periodontitis can be defined as a chronic inflammatory disease initiated by dental plaque biofilm and perpetuated by a deregulated immune response usually accompanied by an irreversible destruction of the supporting tissues surrounding the tooth, including the alveolar bone that may results in a tooth loss.
The aim of this Special Issue is to update the current knowledge of aetiology of periodontitis based on the most recent scientiﬁc evidence. Special emphasis is given to the implications for chronic and aggressive periodontitis.
We especially welcome intervention and review studies with impact on immunomediators active in the periodontal disease and interventional studies aiming at improving the knowledge about the effectiveness of salivary and gingival crevicular fluid diagnostics involved in the diagnosis of periodontitis or in a personalized medicine approach. Review studies including those that use conceptual frameworks for periodontitis pathways on any of the aforementioned topics will also be welcomed.
