Periodontal Disease — Etiology, Classification and Diagnosis

  • Thomas F. Strohm
  • Kurt W. Alt

Abstract

Periodontal disease reaches far back into the history of humankind, and can be verified by periodontal lesions in skeletal material of the earliest humans (Loe et al. 1992). Hillson states that diseases are a “part of the ecology of an individual. It represents the impact of the environment and part of the body’s reaction to it […]. Disease of the teeth reflect much of what is in the diet. Teeth are in direct contact with all of the diet, but most of the dental disease are related to interactions between diet and microorganisms that live in the mouth” (1986, 283). Although anthropological study has been devoted to periodontal disease for a long time, opinions diverge concerning the progress of periodontopathy through the millenia as well as regarding the diagnosis and findings of periodontal disease (see Lavigne and Molto 1995).
