Some patients may show systemic manifestations such as weight loss, mental depression and general malaise . A vast array of treatment modalities is available which can be employed in the treatment of generalized aggressive periodontitis with varying success rates, but a definite guideline for the management is yet to be formulated. New bone formation with autografts and allografts determined by strontium-85,”, M. R. Urist and B. S. Strates, “Bone formation in implants of partially and wholly demineralized bone matrix. This underlies the therapeutic effect of smoking cessation and cessation of other forms of tobacco, and patients should be advised of the benefits of smoking cessation and the potential risks of smoking in worsening their periodontal condition, and if needed expert counseling for cessation of the habit should be sought [32–36]. bacteria to multiply and also the addition of the pro inflammatory mediators to cause periodontal destruction and eventually tooth loss. Research has shown that GTR in conjunction with bone grafting has better potential for regeneration compared with either technique alone [74, 84, 85], and this outcome has been confirmed in aggressive periodontitis also with the use of bioresorbable membranes (Bio-Gide) [75, 80]. Biomodification of the root surface (Root conditioning) with citric acid, tetracycline, or fibronectin is preferable when performing bone grafting or GTR for better clinical results . Extraoral examination revealed bilateral submandibular lymph node enlargement, which was firm, mobile, and nontender. RealAge. 18. Laser-assisted surgery (Nd: YAG laser) is suggested as a valid alternative to conventional scalpel surgical therapy, in individuals at increased surgical risk like in coagulation and platelet function disorders . This study aimed to characterize the microbial community and metabolic profiles in generalized aggressive periodontitis (AgP) using 16S ribosomal RNA (rRNA) gene high-throughput sequencing and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS). These have been tried as adjuncts to mechanical therapy to inhibit the pathogenic bacteria in periodontal pockets [41–44]. Aggressive periodontitis: Types and symptoms. Aggressive periodontitis (AgP) was introduced as a disease entity by the 1999 World Workshop classification (Lang et al., 1999) to define a specific condition characterized by rapid disease progression in otherwise systemically healthy patients with … The etiology of periodontitis is very complex including the dental biofilm, which triggers the immuno-inflammatory response in a susceptible host. The list of antibiotic regimens with evidence of superior clinical outcome when used as an adjuvant to SRP in GAgP [, Generalized Aggressive Periodontitis and Its Treatment Options: Case Reports and Review of the Literature, Department of Periodontics, People’s Dental Academy, Bhopal 462010, India, Department of Periodontics, Azeezia Dental College, Kollam 691537, India, G.

Our current understanding of this disease is that speciﬁc bacteria invade the oral cavity and the host reacts with an inﬂammatory response leading to … Aggressive periodontitis is a disease much like the high blood pressure and diabetes which, whilst unfortunately cannot be completely cured, can be controlled and managed exceptionally well with medical treatment and specialist after care. For example, periodontitis is linked with respiratory disease, rheumatoid arthritis, coronary artery disease and problems controlling blood sugar in diabetes. Earlier tetracyclines were used extensively for this purpose since systemic tetracycline was found to be a useful adjunct to mechanical periodontal therapy in patients with aggressive periodontitis [46–48], but the concern for tetracycline resistance has shifted the focus to the use of other antibiotics both as combination therapy or serial antibiotic therapy .The preferred combination antibiotic therapy at present for treatment of GAgP is 250 mg of amoxicillin thrice daily along with metronidazole 250 mg twice daily for 8 days [24, 49]. Aa is considered a vary common oral bacteria, as it's found in the mouths of up to 20 percent of the population. Gingivitis is a non-destructive disease that causes inflammation of the gums. There was no history of any previous dental treatment. A thorough supragingival scaling was performed following which the patient was motivated for better plaque control. This novel therapeutic approach of antimicrobial therapy seems promising and is getting attention recently either as a monotherapy or as an adjunct to SRP in the nonsurgical treatment of aggressive periodontitis. Localized aggressive periodontitis can, later on, develop into a generalized one, so assessment, diagnosis, and treatment should be prompt and consistent as well. The position of the gingival margin was apical to the CEJ in the labial aspect of 22. The disease progresses in alternating periods of activity and quiescence . Experts don't yet understand what causes aggressive periodontitis, but they believe it may be linked to the bacterium Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans (Aa). Supragingival scaling was performed, and the patient was educated in oral hygiene maintenance. The study bacteria occurred in 78-83% (P. gingivalis, T. forsythia, C. rectus) and in 44% (P. intermedia, A. actinomycetemcomitans) of the periodontitis samples, and in 0-19% of the samples from healthy periodontal sites. A diagnosis of generalized aggressive periodontitis was made according to the established criteria (American Academy of Periodontology, 1999). Other alloplastic grafts which can be used are beta tricalcium phosphate and bioactive glass [80, 81]. Even though the prevalence of aggressive periodontitis is much lower than chronic periodontitis, the management of aggressive periodontitis is more challenging compared to that of chronic periodontitis because of its strong genetic predisposition as an unmodifiable risk factor. Pockets were especially deeper in the molar and incisor regions with slightly lesser involvement in the premolar region. Eventually, tooth loss can occur. Xenografts used are either bovine derived or coral derived. A systematic review,”, F. F. Duarte, R. F. Lotufo, and C. M.

Introduction Periodontitis is the pathological manifestation of the host response against bacterial challenge that stems from a polymicrobial biofilm at the biofilm–gingival interface Several subforms of the disease, and they are mainly characterized by their … The frequency of the recall visits depends on the response of the individual to treatment and presence of other risk factors like environmental factors but generally will be more frequent than that in chronic periodontitis or in localized aggressive periodontitis. Researchers are going on employing the potential several novel technologies in regenerating the lost periodontium including tissue engineering and genetic engineering. This underlies the importance of optimal plaque control both by personally employed methods used by the patient himself and professionally employed plaque control measures by the dental team to the patient. An evaluation of the response to nonsurgical treatment is done 2-3 weeks after treatment during which the gingival and periodontal status of the patient will be reevaluated and compared with the pretreatment values to assess the response to therapy and to assess the areas which need surgical therapy. A sulcus brushing technique (modified Bass technique)  was demonstrated, and the patient was educated on the use of interdental cleansing aids including dental floss and interdental brushes. This is an open access article distributed under the Creative Commons Attribution License, which permits unrestricted use, distribution, and reproduction in any medium, provided the original work is properly cited. Some believe that psychological factors can come into play. One theory is that herpesviruses cooperate with specific bacteria in the etiopathogenesis of the disease. Regular recall appointments were given for maintenance therapy during which the treatment results were well maintained. An orthodontic therapy with concomitant periodontal monitoring and prosthetic rehabilitation, if possible with the use of implants and psychologic counseling, may be needed for patients with advanced forms of the disease. The margins were of knife-edge contour except for the labial aspect of 22 and 42 where it was bluntly rounded. It is one of the most evaluated drug combinations in GAgP, and there is ample evidence now to show that Amoxycillin-Metronidazole combination as an adjunctive treatment in GAgP at initial therapy significantly improves the results and hence should be preferred over other antibiotic regimens as the first-line treatment (Table 1) [50–55].The usefulness of microbial testing may be limited because of the variability of test reports between different labs and the mixed flora, and hence an empiric use of antibiotics like the above-mentioned combination may be more clinically sound and cost-effective than bacterial identification and antibiotic-sensitivity testing in the treatment of aggressive periodontitis .Single-agent therapy with Doxycycline [53, 55], azithromycin , metronidazole [53, 57], and clindamycin  is effective when used adjunctively to nonsurgical procedure of SRP in AgP patients. Periodontal disease is usually a chronic disease taking many months to develop. Mobility of the affected teeth will be seen towards the later stages of the infection. G. C. Armitage, “Development of a classification system for periodontal diseases and conditions,” Annals of Periodontology, vol. The patient was put on maintenance therapy during which he continued with the topical antimicrobial agents and desensitizing agents and was evaluated for surgical therapy. Over the past 20 years, locally delivered, anti-infective pharmacological agents, most recently employing sustained-release vehicles, have been introduced to achieve this goal . Nonsurgical therapy remains the first line of antimicrobial therapy in GAgP. However, mechanistic investigations into the molecular and cellular interaction between periodontal herpesviruses and bacteria are still scarce. This paper attempts to describe the diagnostic features along with the periodontal management options of generalized aggressive periodontitis with the help of case reports with different clinical presentation and patterns of involvement and managed with different treatment modalities available. An individual's own immune response to the bacteria triggers this autoimmune condition. It can be subdivided according to whether it begins before or after puberty. It is interesting that the first ever reported detailed description of a recognized disease in early hominid evolution is a case of prepubertal periodontitis in an 2.5–3-million-year-old fossil remains of a juvenile Australopithecus africanus specimen which showed the typical pattern of alveolar bone destruction with migration of the affected deciduous molars [10, 11]. Topical application of antimicrobial agents and local drug delivery is also a treatment option especially if there are localized areas of exudation and deep pockets not responding adequately to mechanical and systemic antibiotic therapy. This stage may undergo spontaneous remission after a varying period of destruction and the inflammatory symptoms subside to reappear after a period of quiescence. In its more serious form, called periodontitis, the gums can pull away from the tooth, bone can be lost, and the teeth may loosen or fall out. Diagnosis is made according to the criteria set by the American Academy of periodontology, 1999 classification of periodontal diseases and conditions , using history, clinical features, and radiographic features aided by microbial examination if needed. Cosmetic concerns in young aggressive periodontitis patients will be high since the disease can result in flaring, protrusion, pathologic migration, and even extrusion of the anterior teeth. Human histologic studies have shown that a combination of Bio-Oss with either purified porcine collagen (Bio-Oss Collagen)  or a synthetic cell-binding polypeptide (Pepgen P-15)  has the capacity of inducing regeneration of the periodontal attachment apparatus when placed in intrabony defects. I. We are committed to sharing findings related to COVID-19 as quickly as possible. Sign up here as a reviewer to help fast-track new submissions. Causes of Periodontitis. Orthodontic treatment can be commenced once attachment gain and bone stability is achieved after periodontal therapy but is generally advised to postpone till 3 months to 1 year after active periodontal therapy. gingivalis, and T. denticola were the predominant periodontopathic bacteria of aggressive periodontitis patients, Although A. actinomycetemcomitans was also detected in AgP patients, the prevalence of this bacterium was much lower than lower than that of P. gingivalis. B. Zhang et al., “Tobacco and smoking: environmental factors modify the host response (immune system) and have an impact on periodontal health,”, H. A. Schenkein, J. C. Gunsolley, T. E. Koertge, J. G. Schenkein, and J. G. Tew, “Smoking and its effects on early-onset periodontitis,”, D. A. Apatzidou and D. F. Kinane, “Quadrant root planing versus same-day full-mouth root planing. Based on studies of families and family members, individuals with aggressive periodontitis may have a family history of the condition (usually autosomal dominant inheritance pattern) and show … Background: Recent findings have begun to provide a basis for a causal link between herpesviruses and aggressive periodontitis. Host modulation therapy with systemically and locally administered agents is under research for therapy in aggressive periodontitis. A wide array of regenerative materials is being considered for use in periodontitis. Other periodontopathic bacteria such as Porphyromonas gingivalis are also suspected of participating in aggressive periodontitis, although the evidence is controversial. J Periodontol 2001;72:1463-9. Malocclusion, pathologic migration and potential occlusal traumatism which can cause secondary trauma from occlusion can be corrected by orthodontic therapy in GAgP patients already stabilized by periodontal therapy [91–94]. Aa is considered a vary common oral bacteria, as it's found in the mouths of up to 20 percent of the population. Individuals who are otherwise healthy may experience tooth loss as a result. Aggressive periodontitis can be localized or generalized. Based on the history, examination findings, and the radiographic findings, a diagnosis of generalized aggressive periodontitis was made according to the criteria by AAP 1999 classification. Finally an attempt to summarize the available protocol for a comprehensive management of GAgP is done which can serve as a guideline till more definite clear-cut guidelines are established for the disease in the future. 1, pp. This leads to two types of presentation at the time of examination. The host response of the patient or the susceptible individual to pathogenic bacteria in the dental plaque plays a vital role in the pathogenesis and expression of the disease, and this host response is genetically determined and is an unmodifiable risk factor is at present by the current treatment measures . Aggressive periodontitis is often characterised by a rapid loss of periodontal attachment associated with highly pathogenic bacteria and an impaired immune response. Curettage for granulation tissue removal was done following which a through subgingival debridement and root planning was performed. Distinguishing diagnostic factors: Both involve irreversible loss of attachment and bone. Any site which shows signs of recurrence of the disease like bleeding on probing which is considered as the first clinical sign of inflammation should be treated vigorously and monitored for resolution of the signs. Early stages of the disease with mild to moderate periodontal and bone destruction may be managed entirely by nonsurgical therapy with systemic antibiotics as an adjuvant to mechanical therapy. There was no associated complaint other than a generalized mild hypersensitivity to cold and sweet food. An OPG and full-mouth IOPA X-ray were performed which revealed the generalized distribution of alveolar bone loss which was a combination of both horizontal and vertical bone loss (Figure 7). A regular recall visit preferably at one-week intervals should be performed especially at the initial stages of the treatment to monitor the efficiency of the patient’s plaque control measures and to assess the response of the patient towards nonsurgical therapy. A postoperative radiograph 6 months later showed a significant bone fill in the molar regions where grafting was done with an increase in bone density of the alveolar crest with corticated bone formations in the crest at the other areas (Figure 8(g)). Furthermore, this is an option in patients where there is intolerance to systemic administration of the antibiotic. Regeneration of the periodontal supporting structures lost due to periodontal disease so that the form and function of the periodontium is reestablished has been an elusive or difficult-to-achieve goal for periodontal therapists. Aggressive periodontitis can be differentiated from chronic periodontitis by the age of onset, rapid rate of disease progression, the nature and composition of the associated subgingival microflora, alterations in host immune response, and a familial aggregation of the diseased individuals . The severity of the disease appears to be an exuberant reaction to a minimum amount of plaque accumulation and may result in early tooth loss. A. Mamalis, A. D. Sklavounou, F. X. Tzerbos, and D. D. Rontogianni, “Eosinophilic granuloma masquerading as aggressive periodontitis,”, R. M. Nagler, Y. Ben-Arieh, and D. Laufer, “Case report of regional alveolar bone actinomycosis: a juvenile periodontitis-like lesion,”, C. C. BASS, “An effective method of personal oral hygiene. Gingival examination revealed normal color except for the labial aspect of 22 where it was slightly reddish. Interleukin-2 -330 and 166 gene polymorphisms in relation to aggressive or chronic periodontitis and the presence of periodontopathic bacteria. Objectives . HSV-2 occurred in 17% of the periodontitis patients. Further understanding of the etiology, risk factors, pathogenesis, and host immune response in aggressive periodontitis along with advances in regenerative concepts, tissue engineering, and gene therapy is needed for formulating better management protocols in the treatment of generalized aggressive periodontitis. The good news is that often it burns itself out before you are 30 years old in most cases, and then slows down after that. The disease is generally found to have a racial and sex predilection, with blacks and male teenagers having higher risk for the disease compared to whites and females, although reports vary between different ethnic groups and populations, with some populations showing prevalence as high as 28.8% [4, 5]. A recent study reported that psychotherapy offered at 3 levels (individual, group, and conjoint family psychotherapy) to GAgP patients gave positive psychologic effects that restored their ability to socialize in their environment contributing to their positive experience in life . I. are of promising results. This study aimed to characterize the microbial community and metabolic profiles in generalized aggressive periodontitis (AgP) using 16S ribosomal RNA (rRNA) gene high-throughput sequencing and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS). Aggressive periodontitis affects people who practice poor oral hygiene. Regular SPT was found to be effective in maintaining clinical and microbiological improvements attained after active periodontal therapy in early onset periodontitis . Routine blood investigations were within normal limits. Coralline grafts implanted into human periodontal defects have produced better clinical results when compared to nongrafted sites . Aggressive periodontal disease is a very destructive form of periodontal disease. The flap was reflected following which sulcular incision and interdental incision were made to remove the wedge of tissue. Psychotherapy has to be started immediately following the first appointment and should be continued concomitantly for total rehabilitation of the patient for a variable duration depending upon the psychologic status of the individual patient. Generalized aggressive periodontitis affects almost all of the patient’s teeth. Proximal contacts were lost between maxillary and mandibular anterior teeth with pathologic migration of 11, 21, 31, 32, and 42 and extrusion of 31. We hypothesized that the subgingival microbiota do not differ between sites in individuals with chronic or aggressive periodontitis, or by smoking status. Synthetic grafts/alloplastic grafts have been considered primarily as defect fillers. The diagnostic features of the disease are characteristic, but the clinical presentation and patterns of destructions may vary between patients. Patients will be otherwise systemically healthy. The graft was a xenograft (Bovine graft—Ossopan), which was mixed with the blood from the surgical site and placed into the defect after presuturing the site with silk sutures. Alphonse Gargiulo, DDS, MS, Rachel Degen, RDH, and Mark Val, CDT, present a case report of a 20-year-old African American female who was diagnosed at puberty with localized aggressive periodontitis, which developed into a generalized form of the disease as the patient entered late adolescence. The patient noticed the spacing about 1 year before, after which she noticed it to be gradually increasing and associated with intermittent episodes of pus discharge which subsided on taking antibiotics as per advice at a local hospital. View at: Google Scholar See in References , 2 1. This study examined whether the presence of herpesviruses [human cytomegalovirus (HCMV), Epstein–Barr virus (EBV) type 1, herpes simplex virus … There was labial migration and flaring of upper and lower anterior teeth with an evident distolabial migration of 22. The American Academy of periodontology revised the classification of periodontal diseases in 1999. Of the microflora characterised in aggressive periodontitis, approximately 65-75% of bacteria are Gram-negative bacilli, with few spirochaetes or motile rods present. B. Novaes et al., “Antimicrobial photodynamic therapy in the non-surgical treatment of aggressive periodontitis: cytokine profile in gingival crevicular fluid, preliminary results,”, R. R. De Oliveira, H. O. Schwartz-Filho, A. Kohzoh Kubota and Makoto Yokota, A Case Report of Comprehensive Treatment by the Periodontal Regeneration Technique for Aggressive Periodontitis., Nihon Shishubyo Gakkai Kaishi (Journal of the Japanese Society of Periodontology), 10.2329/perio.49.151, 49, 2, (151-161), (2007). Newer generations of regenerative materials and advances in tissue engineering for regeneration and genetic engineering to modify the genetic risk factors seem to be really promising in the future. Aggressive periodontitis is a type of periodontal disease that usually differs greatly from chronic periodontitis. Early diagnosis is of utmost importance for the prevention of extensive attachment loss and bone loss experienced in aggressive periodontitis. In addition, there are rare reports of certain conditions like intraosseous sarcoidosis , eosinophilic granuloma [20, 21] and alveolar bone actinomycosis , presenting with extensive alveolar bone destruction like in aggressive periodontitis which can be differentiated by biopsy of the suspected lesions. Van Eldere, and D. Van Steenberghe, “One stage full-versus partial-mouth disinfection in the treatment of chronic adult or generalized early-onset periodontitis. Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans (previously Actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans) is a Gram-negative, facultative anaerobe, nonmotile bacterium that is often found in association with localized aggressive periodontitis, a severe infection of the periodontium.It is also suspected to be involved in chronic periodontitis. This disease is often localized, affecting only a few teeth. Wikibuy Review: A Free Tool That Saves You Time and Money, 15 Creative Ways to Save Money That Actually Work. However, since the expression of the disease in susceptible individuals is also influenced by microbial and environmental risk factors, the disease can be successfully kept under control by controlling the microbial and environmental factors. Therapy should start with attempts at controlling or eliminating the etiologic agents and modifiable risk factors for the disease. The bacteria responsible for periodontitis can enter your bloodstream through gum tissue, possibly affecting other parts of your body. Family history of similar complaints or early tooth loss could not be elicited. A periodontal pack was placed, and antibiotics and analgesics were prescribed for the patient for 5 days. Suturing was done after adapting the buccal and lingual flaps well. Family history may reveal a history of early tooth loss in the parents or immediate blood relatives of the patient . The patient was a nonsmoker, and there was no history of use of any other forms of tobacco. Laser irradiation of subgingival sites to eradicate periodontopathic microorganisms is also being considered in the nonsurgical therapy of periodontitis patients. Preparing the patients with advanced disease having multiple teeth with hopeless prognosis emotionally for extraction also has to be dealt with carefully by the dentist, if needed using multiple appointments, and the extent of the impact that bad news, such as having to lose teeth, has on an individual is most often dependent on the way in which the information is communicated . Alphonse Gargiulo, DDS, MS, Rachel Degen, RDH, and Mark Val, CDT, present a case report of a 20-year-old African American female who was diagnosed at puberty with localized aggressive periodontitis, which developed into a generalized form of the disease as the patient entered late adolescence. T. Roshna, K. Nandakumar, "Generalized Aggressive Periodontitis and Its Treatment Options: Case Reports and Review of the Literature", Case Reports in Medicine, vol. In the periods of quiescence, patients are free of symptoms and the gingiva appears pink and healthy even though probing reveals deep periodontal pockets. The key to successful treatment is early diagnosis. Comparison of serial radiographs helps in assessing the rapid rate of bone destruction and can aid in the diagnosis of the disease. Aggressive periodontitis can be differentiated from chronic periodontitis by the age of onset, rapid rate of disease progression, the nature and composition of the associated subgingival microflora, alterations in host immune response, and a familial aggregation of the diseased individuals . The periods of inactivity may remain for weeks to months or even years and will be followed by periods of active disease. The aggressive periodontal breakdown caused by this disease can result in loss of the patient`s maxillary and mandibular first molars and incisors at quite an early age. Association between cell-wall-deficient bacteria and periodontal condition was: periodontally healthy, 3.3% (1/30); individuals with chronic periodontitis, 30.6% (11/36); and those with aggressive periodontitis, 100% (23/23). This behavioral modification from the patient needs a positive reinforcement and encouragement from the dental team. A case report,”, D. M. Davis, J. Fiske, B. Scott, and D. R.
