The Periodontal ligament in health and disease

  title={The Periodontal ligament in health and disease},
  author={Barry K.B. Berkovitz},
Beginning with an overview of the tissue and its characteristics, the text covers the development of the periodontal ligament, its cellular structure, biochemistry and biophysics, vasculature, innervation and physiological responses to tooth movement and other forces, as applied in orthodontic treatment. Subsequent sections cover: infectious diseases; trauma; neoplasia and cysts; hormonal and nutritional/metabolic disorders; and diseases of the blood and lymphatic system.

Tooth Mobility, Periodontal Ligament Space, and the Alveolus During Periodontal Health, Disease, and Disuse

Periapical Lesions — Clinical and Anthropological Aspects

In early populations, the main causes of tooth loss were periodontal disease and pulpoalveolar disease (periapical periodontitis), both of which are attributed to oral infections.

Neurological mechanisms involved in orthodontic tooth movement: A contemporary review

The focus of this review is on the in-depth analysis of neurological mechanisms involved in the causation of orthodontic tooth movement.

Collagen—The Skeleton of the Periodontium: A Review

Collagen serves immense functions related to the structural integrity as well in the tooth-eruption mechanism and presents with a rapid turnover rate which along with its biochemical composition would help in determining a pathological involvement causing periodontal destruction.

The Periodontal Ligament is implicated in bone remodeling, cells nutrition and sensory events, namely as periodontal mechanoreceptors, and the implication of stem cells in healing, in the regulation of bone volume, PDL repair and regeneration is summarized.

Experimental investigation of the mechanical behaviour and structure of the bovine periodontal ligament

The aim of this thesis is to describe its morphology, anatomy, histology and structure of the components in order to determine its geometric parameters at different length scales and to characterise the mechanical properties of the periodontal ligament through shear and uniaxial tension-compression tests.

The effects of aging upon the connective tissues of the periodontal ligament.

The fibroblasts of the aged rats exhibit some age changes as perceived at the ultrastructural level, in contrast to the apparent lack of age changes so far determined for the extracellular matrix of the periodontal ligament.
