Bone undergoes a continuous cycle of remodeling for maintenance and healing. For almost a decade it has been appreciated that the immune system is intricately linked to bone homeostasis. Both acute and chronic inflammatory responses have been shown to impact bone health. A common form of inflammatory disease that causes bone destruction is the chronic infectious disease known as periodontitis (PD). PD is a bacteria-driven inflammation of the tooth-supporting apparatus that leads to resorption… CONTINUE READING
