Abstract

Precision or Personalised Periodontal Care - Periodontics through the looking glass

Gregory J Seymour

Over the past 50 years a greater understanding of both the aetiology and the immune mechanisms underlying chronic periodontal disease has emerged. However, most clinicians would argue that these advances have had little impact on treatment planning and treatment modalities. Although plaque control has remained the backbone of periodontal treatment, a variety of surgical techniques have evolved independently of underlying disease pathogenesis. Nevertheless, as clinical practice in the 21st century shifts towards “Precision or Personalised Care” assessment of the individual host response to a dysbiosis in the oral microbiome will become fundamental and it will be important to have an in depth understanding of the mechanisms controlling disease progression and how these impact on personalised treatment approaches. Equally, it is recognised that an understanding of the risk factors for chronic periodontitis is essential for successful periodontal treatment and in avoiding implant failure. In this context, the recent classification of periodontal disease has included a staging and grading of disease to reflect not only the individual response to plaque, in terms of extent and severity, but also to reflect the impact of environmental and systemic factors. It is now generally believed that unravelling the complexities of the interaction between bacterial, genetic and environmental (epigenetic) factors will lead to enhanced individual risk profiling and more targeted treatment in the future. At the same time the relationship between periodontal infection and systemic diseases is also generally accepted with significant implications for general dentists. This presentation will ‘look’ at how this increased understanding of disease mechanisms will impact on ‘Precision’ or ‘Personalised’ treatment approaches now and in the future."
