Special Issue Information

Dear authors,

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:

  1. Contribution of proinflammatory cytokines towards the etiopathogenesis of periodontal and peri-implant diseases;
  2. Role of anti-inflammatory proteins towards the progression of periodontal and peri-implant diseases;
  3. Role of herbal medications in the management of periodontal and peri-implant diseases;
  4. Role of essential oil-based formulations in the management of periodontal and peri-implant diseases;
  5. Alveolar bone grafting around periodontal and peri-implant defects;
  6. Role of viruses and fungi in the etiopathogenesis of periodontal and peri-implant diseases;
  7. Growth factors in periodontology and implant dentistry;
  8. 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.

There is a perplexity in the association between interleukin (IL) polymorphisms and periodontitis among patients with and without diabetes mellitus (DM). The aim of the present study was to evaluate indexed data regarding the association between periodontitis and genetic polymorphisms in interleukins among patients with and without DM. The addressed question was “Is there an association between periodontitis and polymorphisms in interleukins among patients with and without DM?” Original studies were included. Indexed databases were searched, and the pattern of the present literature review was customized to summaries’ the pertinent information. Eight studies were included and processed for data extraction. Two studies showed that polymorphisms in IL-1B genes aggravate periodontitis in patients with type-2 DM, and two studies showed that IL-1B genes either do not or are less likely to contribute towards the progression of periodontitis in patients with type-2 DM. Two studies reported that IL genes do not show cross-susceptibility with periodontitis and type-2 DM. One study reported that the primary factor that governs the occurrence and progression of periodontitis in patients with and without type-2 DM is poor routine oral hygiene maintenance. Seven studies had a high risk of bias. The role of IL gene polymorphisms in the development and progression of periodontitis in patients with and without DM remains controversial. Full article
