Periodontology is the study of the supporting structures of teeth (gums, bones and cement-like substance that hold the teeth, and the periodontal ligament); and the diagnosis and treatment of diseases and conditions that affect them. This textbook is a complete guide to periodontology for dental students. Divided into twelve sections, the book begins with explanations of normal periodontium, classification and epidemiology, aetiology, and pathology of gingival and periodontal diseases. The following sections cover diagnosis and both surgical and non-surgical treatment methods. A complete chapter is dedicated to implantology and the interdisciplinary link between periodontics and other subspecialties is explained in detail. Each topic is enhanced by colour-coded boxes highlighting key points, viva voce questions, and suggested further reading as well as high quality clinical photographs, diagrams and tables.

This book provides a systems-based approach to periodontology and offers a scientific roadmap of the interactions which can lead to periodontal disease. The content is divided into five sections. The first introduces the reader to the concept of systems theory and its mathematical foundation. The second section provides the reader with a current view of periodontal medicine including the microbiology, molecular genetics, relationship to systemic disease and current and future therapies. Periodontitis is caused by members of the oral microbiota and the third section provides the reader with various views of the relationship of the microbiota to the host. The fourth section moves from the bacterium to the host and its immune responses to altered host: bacteria interactions. The final section deals specifically with bone destruction in periodontitis and brings the reader up-to-date with the current view of the control network that exists between mesenchymal cells such as osteoblasts, immune cells and osteoclast precursor cells that controls bone remodelling in health and disease.
