Role of Genetics in Periodontal Disease and How it Relates to Systemic Entities


Herbert I. Bader, DDS, diplomate, American Academy of Osseointegration, faculty member, Harvard School of Dental Medicine and maintains a private practice in Plymouth

The future of medicine is closely related to the science of genomic research. This applies to a large extent to the understanding and management of periodontitis, and its systemic sequellae. Current translational research is providing a great deal of useful information as to the predictability and management of periodontitis and how it relates, presumptively, to systemic diseases. We will discuss the contemporary understanding of these relationships, and the simple use of genetic analysis in the office, as a current and increasingly useful modality.
