Periodontal diseases in the child

  title={Periodontal diseases in the child},
  author={Hom-lay Wang},
Background: Periodontal diseases are among the most frequent diseases affecting children and adolescents. These include gingivitis, localized or generalized aggressive periodontitis (a.k.a., early onset periodontitis which includes generalized or localized prepubertal periodontitis and juvenile periodontitis) and periodontal diseases associated with systemic disorders. The best approach to managing periodontal diseases is prevention, followed by early detection and treatment. Methods: This…

Identification of Gingivitis-Related Genes Across Human Tissues Based on the Summary Mendelian Randomization

This study constructed a data integration method that uses the Summary Mendelian randomization (SMR) to combine the Genome-wide association study (GWAS) with expression quantitative trait locus (eQTL) data to identify gingivitis-related genes.

Periodontal diseases in children and adolescents: classification, aetiology and management.

The current classification of childhood periodontal disease is reviewed and the clinical presentation and management of the more common disorders are outlined.

Dental plaque-induced gingival diseases.

The classification of gingival disease in this review relied upon experimental and/or epidemiological human studies that accurately and reliably assessed an underlying functional derangement that was localized to the gingiva and was reported in a peer-reviewed journal.

Prepubertal periodontitis. I. Definition of a clinical disease entity.

The purpose of the report is to define prepubertal periodontitis as a clinical entity, establish diagnostic criteria, demonstrate clinical, radiographic, and historical features, document progression, and explore methods of treatment.

Localized juvenile periodontitis and generalized severe periodontitis: clinical findings.

Medically healthy subjects (N = 103), 10-32 years of age, with localized (juvenile periodontitis = JP) or generalized (severe periodontitis = SP) advanced periodontal disease were analyzed for

Prevalence and microbiology of localized prepubertal periodontitis.

The present data indicate that localized prepubertal periodontitis is more common than previously realized and is associated with bacteria generally regarded as major periodontal pathogens.

Early-onset periodontitis.

Evidence suggests that lesion distribution may be a function of the nature of the infecting agent and the characteristics of the immune response, and that both localized and generalized forms of disease may be observed in the same family.

Periodontal therapy in young adults with severe generalized periodontitis.

Reductions in attachment level and changes in microbiological parameters were similar to those found in studies of localized juvenile periodontitis subjects, where surgery or antibiotics have been shown to be necessary to reduce levels of A. actinomycetemcomitans.

Microbiological and clinical effects of surgical treatment of localized juvenile periodontitis.

It is shown that a substantial suppression of subgingival A. actinomycetemcomitans cannot be achieved by periodontal scaling and root planing alone, but can be accomplished by surgical removal ofperiodontal tissues.

Clinical features of early-onset periodontitis.

Clinical features that may be useful in the early detection of EOP include overt gingival inflammation, dental calculus and a high rate of caries, restorations and tooth loss.
