Department of Periodontology, Shanxi Medical University School and Hospital of Stomatology & Shanxi Province Key Laboratory of Oral Diseases Prevention and New Materials, Taiyuan 030001, China.

Chronic periodontitis is a disease of periodontal supporting tissue infection caused by various causes. It was believed that the oral bacteria were the initiator of chronic periodontitis, and the host immune factors would affect the developing process and outcome of periodontitis, although the specific regulatory mechanism was not completely clear. Extracellular vesicles, subcellular components produced by cell paracrine, may carry a variety of genetic information to mediate intercellular communication. Read More

Dysregulation of metallothionein and zinc aggravates periodontal diseases.

J Trace Elem Med Biol 2021 Apr 3;66:126754. Epub 2021 Apr 3.

Department of Restorative Dentistry, Faculty of Dentistry, University of Malaya, Kuala Lumpur, 50603, Malaysia.

Background: Periodontitis (PD) is a multifaceted inflammatory disease connected to bacterial infection that results in the destruction of tooth supporting structures and eventually tooth loss. Given their involvement in infection and inflammation, both metallothionein (MT) and zinc (Zn) might play vital roles in the development and progression of PD. More specifically, both MT and Zn are heavily involved in regulating immune functions, controlling bacterial infection, balancing inflammatory responses, and reducing oxidative stress, all of which are associated with the pathogenesis of PD.

The Oral Microbiome in Periodontal Health.

Front Cell Infect Microbiol 2021 22;11:629723. Epub 2021 Mar 22.

Institute of Microbiology, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, Prague, Czechia.

The estimation of oral microbiome (OM) taxonomic composition in periodontally healthy individuals can often be biased because the clinically periodontally healthy subjects for evaluation can already experience dysbiosis. Usually, they are included just based on the absence of clinical signs of periodontitis. Additionally, the age of subjects is used to be higher to correspond well with tested groups of patients with chronic periodontitis, a disorder typically associated with aging. Read More

Serum proteins associated with periodontitis relapse post-surgery: A pilot study.

J Periodontol 2021 Apr 4. Epub 2021 Apr 4.

Umeå University, Department of Molecular Periodontology, Umeå, Sweden.
