Special Issue "Periodontal Therapy"
A special issue of Dentistry Journal (ISSN 2304-6767). This special issue belongs to the section "Oral Hygiene, Periodontology and Peri-implant Diseases".
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 April 2019).
Over the years, a substantial amount of basic and clinical research has provided us with significant knowledge on the diagnosis and treatment of periodontal disease. In the last decade, a special emphasis has been focused on more patient-oriented interventional approaches that has moved periodontology towards less invasive procedures to reduce operative trauma whilst still achieving a satisfactory therapeutic result. Through the application and integration of advanced technologies the general dentist is actually able to adequately manage most periodontal patients. The non-surgical periodontal therapy combined with the application of biological agents has been proven effective in the regenerative therapy of intrabony defects. Many intrabony defects can be approached using very delicate surgical procedures with preservation of the interdental papilla and very short buccal/lingual flaps, limiting the indications for more invasive surgical techniques to a low percentage of bony defects. What has not changed is the importance of thorough mechanical debridement and optimal plaque control for successful non-surgical and surgical periodontal therapy.
This Special Issue is interested in all aspects of non-surgical and surgical periodontal therapy tailored to individual’s needs through diagnosis and risk profiling. Particular emphasis will be given to minimally invasive treatment options. When and how do we perform non-surgical and surgical periodontal therapy today?
