The mechanisms of perio disease development
from Dental Economics
Unraveling the mechanisms involved in the development of periodontal disease has occurred during a relatively short period of time. Research continues to add pieces to the puzzle almost daily. For more than two decades starting in the early 1960s, prevailing wisdom held that all the bacteria in the mouth contribute to the development and progression of periodontal disease and that bacterial acids sever the gingival attachment. Home-care recommendations and treatments were developed with this consensus in mind.
