Special Issue Information
Periodontitis is a very common microbially driven inflammatory condition of the supporting apparatus of the teeth, leading to early tooth loss and reduced quality of life. A considerable amount of research in recent decades has shown how periodontal inflammation is not just limited to the mouth but may have systemic consequences through systemic spread of bacteria and increased inflammatory burden.
The aim of this issue is to expand on the associations between periodontitis and chronic non-communicable diseases. In particular, mechanisms of associations as well as modalities to reduce the systemic impact of periodontitis will be discussed.
This is a rapidly emerging topic in the dental–medical literature. A better understanding of associations between periodontitis and systemic conditions will be needed for clinical practice and future research.
Papers reporting mechanisms of association between periodontitis and systemic non-communicable diseases and discussing methods to reduce the systemic inflammatory burden of periodontal disease are welcomed to be submitted.
