Oral Bacteria and Cancer

This authors of this research article from 2014 explain, “Both P. gingivalis and F. nucleatum have attributes consistent with a role in cancer development and progression. The question then arises as to why the widespread infection with these organisms leads to disease in only a limited number of individuals.” Click here to read the entire [...]

Periodontal disease and overall health: An update

This authors of this research article from 2013 explain, “Periodontitis has been associated with several systemic conditions such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, adverse pregnancy outcomes and respiratory infections. In recent years, the relationship of periodontitis to overall health has been explored by numerous researchers who have expanded our understanding of periodontal disease as it affects [...]

Pathogen and Host-Response Markers Correlated with Periodontal Disease

This authors of this research article from 2009 explain, “Using qPCR and sensitive immunoassays, we identified host- and bacterially derived biomarkers correlated with periodontal disease. This approach offers significant potential for the discovery of biomarker signatures useful in the development of rapid POC chairside diagnostics for oral and systemic diseases.” Click here to read the [...]

Systemic Diseases Caused by Oral Infection

This authors of this research article from 2000 explain, “The purpose of this review is to evaluate the current status of oral infections, especially periodontitis, as a causal factor for systemic diseases. Three mechanisms or pathways linking oral infections to secondary systemic effects have been proposed: (i) metastatic spread of infection from the oral cavity [...]

Biocompatible Periodontal Therapy

Definitions and protocols A brief introduction to the practice of anti-infective periodontal therapy. "The goal of biocompatible periodontal therapy is the elimination of the infections, not the elimination of tooth structure." Biocompatible Periodontal Therapy IAOMT Committee on Periodontal Therapy Periodontal disease is an infection --- “an invasion by pathogenic microorganisms of a bodily part in [...]
