Periodontal medicine is a term used for different purposes in different parts of the world. In certain countries, it relates to the study of the dynamic relationship between periodontitis and systemic conditions, such as cardiovascular and cerebrovascular disease, pre-term labor and low-birth-weight bodies, Diabetes mellitus, osteoporosis and disorders of respiratory tract. Such studies investigate the peripheral impacts of periodontal inflammation on systemic health and also the influence of systemic diseases on the progression of chronic periodontitis such as type II Diabetes mellitus, where evidence exists for a bi-directional relationship with periodontitis.
The special issue will intend to focus on current diagnostic methodologies and management of association between periodontal disease and systemic disorders/diseases.
The Journal will publish original research papers, review articles, technical notes, case reports, and letters to the editor in subjects relating to clinical practice and research into the main fields of interest of the publication.
