The Periodontics section of Frontiers in Dental Medicine aims to publish an innovative and practice-relevant exchange of information in the field, including research on the maintenance of periodontal and peri-implant homeostasis, and developments in the control of periodontitis and peri-implantitis.
Undoubtedly, the maintenance of periodontal and peri-implant homeostasis is an important pillar of oral and general health. Maintaining or establishing this equilibrium is a complex prophylactic and therapeutic challenge in the context of constant attacking and defensive reactions in these fragile tissues. This is illustrated by the continuous and intensive efforts of development and research to control periodontitis and peri-implantitis. The Periodontics section of Frontiers in Dental Medicine would like to close knowledge gaps and showcase new research in this area and thus push the scientific limits.
Periodontics aims at an innovative and practice-relevant exchange of information in the field, including but not limited to:
- Epidemiology (clinical, molecular and genomic).
- Risk factors and prognostic markers.
- Mechanical and behavioural biofilm control.
- Antimicrobial strategies and infection control.
- Wound healing.
- Innovative regenerative materials and methods.
- Supportive therapy.
