Special Issue "Periodontal and Peri-implant Diseases: Etiopathogenesis and Management"
A special issue of Dentistry Journal (ISSN 2304-6767).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 September 2021.
It is my sincere pleasure to invite you to submit your valuable manuscript to the forthcoming Special Issue, “Periodontal and Peri-Implant Diseases: Etiopathogenesis and Management” in the journal Dentistry . It is well known that the accumulation of bacterial biofilm is primarily associated with the etiopathogenesis of periodontal- (periodontitis) and peri-implant diseases (peri-implant mucositis and peri-implantitis). Poor routine oral hygiene maintenance is the most common risk-factor of periodontal and peri-implant diseases; however, habits such as tobacco smoking, use of electronic nicotine delivery systems, and chewing smokeless tobacco products have been linked with the etiopathogenesis of periodontal and peri-implant diseases. From a systemic perspective, diseases such as acquired immune deficiency syndrome, poorly controlled diabetes mellitus, and cardiovascular diseases may contribute towards the development and/or progression of periodontal and peri-implant diseases.
Conventionally, the mechanical curettage of supra- and sub-gingival teeth (or scaling and root planing (SRP)) and implant surfaces is performed for the management of peri-implant diseases. However, adjunct therapies such as antibiotic and probiotic therapy, photobiomodulation, and photodynamic therapy have been reported to augment the overall anti-inflammatory effect of SRP and mechanical debridement which are traditionally performed for the management of periodontal and peri-implant diseases, respectively. Irrespectively of the type of therapeutic regimens adopted for the management of periodontal and peri-implant diseases, patient education with particular emphasis on routine oral hygiene maintenance, routine visits to oral healthcare providers and the beneficial effects of systemic health status should not be overlooked.
Potential original and review articles that may be considered to undergo peer-review in this Special Issue include but are not limited to those related to the following topics:
- Contribution of proinflammatory cytokines towards the etiopathogenesis of periodontal and peri-implant diseases;
- Role of anti-inflammatory proteins towards the progression of periodontal and peri-implant diseases;
- Role of herbal medications in the management of periodontal and peri-implant diseases;
- Role of essential oil-based formulations in the management of periodontal and peri-implant diseases;
- Alveolar bone grafting around periodontal and peri-implant defects;
- Role of viruses and fungi in the etiopathogenesis of periodontal and peri-implant diseases;
- Growth factors in periodontology and implant dentistry;
- Impact of patient education in relation to the long-term success of periodontal and peri-implant treatments.
The editorial board welcomes authors to submit their research proposals (basic science and clinical) and will be pleased to consider the proposed topics after discussion with the other board members.
The editorial board is looking forward to receiving your valuable research work.
