Course Description

Course Description:

Over the years, knowledge on periodontal microbiology and immunology enabled the identification of bacteria/molecules that could serve as markers of risk of disease activity and periodontal breakdown. These advances, coupled with the constant progress of biotechnology tools now enable clinicians to monitor some of these markers to promote a chairside surveillance of periodontal health and anticipate periodontal breakdown in treated patients.

This course aims at presenting a review of periodontal disease progression concepts and the rationale behind some of the markers and biological fluids used in periodontal diagnostic tests. Additionally, basic principles of the biotechnological tools used to detect and quantify these markers are to be presented, along with their relative advantages, limitations, and potential pitfalls.

Learning Objectives:

At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe basic mechanisms of destruction of the periodontium
  2. Understand the peculiarities of periodontal disease progression and candidate markers of this process.
  3. Understand the biotechnological approaches used to detect markers of disease and bacteria.
  4. Recognize the limitations and advantages of the diagnostic tests presently used in periodontics.
