Some pathogens may also persist
  11. 11. • The main aetiological agent of periodontal disease is microflora inhabiting subgingival plaque.• Host tissues and its specific and non- specific host defense mechanisms play crucial modulating roles.
  12. 12. HOST TISSUE• Dentogingival junction is most vulnerable site for microbial attack but can be maintained healthy with good oral hygiene• Plaque accumulates close to the gingival margin, the host defenses are overcome and gingival inflammation (gingivitis) and subsequent periodontal inflammation with loss of attachment ensues (periodontitis).

  14. 14. Dental Plaque is an essential aetiological agent in the development and progression of periodontal diseases and is shown by the following— Epidemiological data— Clinical Studies— Topical application of antimicrobial agents— Initiation of disease in gnotobiotic animals by peridontopathogenic bacteria
  15. 15. PLAQUE SPECIFIC HYPOTHESIS— In certain disease states such as necrotizing ulcerative gingivitis the key aetiologic agents are fusobacteria and spirochaetes. Direct involvement of Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans in aggressive (juvenile) periodontitis— Disease can be resolved by appropriate antibiotics active against anaerobes (metronidazole) and tetracycline.
  16. 16. NON-SPECIFIC PLAQUE HYPOTHESIS— Collective groups or consortia of different bacteria have the total complement of virulence factors required for periodontal tissue destruction— some bacteria can substitute for others absent from the pathogenic consortium.— This hypothesis implies that plaque will cause disease irrespective of its composition, and it is supported by the clinical findings of numerous bacterial species in diseased periodontal pockets.

These interactions are influencedin the balance in the microflora, e.g. such as by reduc- by disease modifiers, which may be genetic (e.g.ing the severity of the inflammatory response, or by neutrophil defects) or environmental (e.g. tobaccoECOLOGICAL PLAQUE HYPOTHESISaltering the redox potential of the pocket to preventthe growth of the obligate anaerobes. Other relevantchanges in the local environment that could perturb smoking) factors. The clinical signs reflect the sum of these interactions, and the severity of the disease can feed back to influence the microbial challenge, Predominantly Gingival Gram positive microflora health Plaque Reduced Low GCF flow reduction inflammation Higher Eh Facultative anaerobes Inflammatory Environmental Ecological response change shift Predominantly Gram negative microflora Plaque Increased High GCF flow Gingivitis accumulation inflammation Lower Eh Obligate anaerobesFig. 6.17 A schematic representation of the ‘ecological plaque hypothesis’ in relation to periodontal disease. Plaqueaccumulation produces an inflammatory host response; this causes changes in the local environmental conditions which favourthe growth of proteolytic and anaerobic Gram negative bacteria. Disease could be prevented by not only targeting the putativepathogens, but also by interfering with the factors driving their selection.134

  23. 23. STAGE 1:THE INITIAL LESION• develops within 4 days of plaque accumulation.• Micro-flor a consists mostly of Gr am-positive cocci (Streptococcus spp.).• Histologically, there is an acute inflammator y reaction.• The lesion is char acter ized by increased flow of GCF, migr ation of PMN leukocytes into the gingival sulcus from the local vasculature .• Adjacent to the junctional and sulcular epithelia, the inflammator y infiltr ate occupies approximately 5-10% of the gingival connective tissue .• This initial lesion is not visible clinically.
  24. 24. STAGE 2: THE EARLY LESION• Appear s after approximately 7 days of plaque accumulation, detectable clinically as gingivitis.• lower oxygen tension and the plaque flor a shifts to more Actinomyces spp., spirochaetes and capnophilic or ganisms.• Histologically, the gingival infiltr ate in the ear ly lesion is dominated by lymphocytes (75%) and macro-phages,few plasma cells• The infiltr ated area occupies approximately 15% of the mar ginal gingival connective tissue , with some local destr uction of collagen.• Migr ation of polymor phonuclear leukocytes into the gingival sulcus and crevicular fluid peaks at 6 to 12 days following the onset of clinically
  25. 25. STAGE 3: ESTABLISHED LESION• After a var iable per iod of time the subgingival microflor a develops into an environment that can suppor t the growth of obligate anaerobes such as Porphyromonas gingivalis and Prevotella inter media.• Histologically, there is a fur ther increase in the size of the inflammator y lesion within the affected gingiva, with a shift to a predominance of plasma cells and B-lymphocytes.• The junctional and pocket epithelia are heavily infiltr ated with neutrophils. Plasma cells are found at the per ipher y of die lesion, while macrophages and lymphocytes are present in the lamina propr ia of the pocket wall.• Established lesions may per sist for months or year s without progression to per iodontitis.
  26. 26. TYPES OF GINGIVITIS• Chronic Marginal gingivitis• Acute Necrotizing Ulcerative gingivitis• Medication influenced gingivitis• Gingivitis associated with systemic diseases• Acute Herpetic gingivostomatitis

  29. 29. FORMATION OF DENTAL POCKET• Creates highly anaerobic environment• pH shifts from 6.9 to approximately 7.4 to 7.8 and the pocket is continually bathed by the protein-r ich GCF, which encour ages growth of proteolytic bacter ia.• Subgingival plaque have a dense zone of mostly Gr am-positive bacter ia attached to the tooth surface and a less densely packed zone of mainly Gr am-negative or ganisms next to the gingival surface .
