The Periodontal Disease

  • Ignazio Pandolfo

Parodontopathies are affections of complex etiopathogenesis. This is related to the often indissoluble link between a variably associated component of inflammatory origin and relevant dystrophic damage, with a greater or lesser extent. The following clinical-anatomic entities are included in the field of the parodontopathies: chronic periodontitis, aggressive periodontitis and ulcero-necrotic periodontitis.
