On putative periodontal pathogens: an epidemiological perspective


Lopez, Rodrigo; Hujoel, Philippe; Belibasakis, Georgios N (2015). On putative periodontal pathogens: an epidemiological perspective. Virulence, 6(3):249-257.

Abstract

The current understanding on the role of microbiology on periodontitis causation is reviewed. An appraisal of the literature reveals several issues that have limited the attempts to investigate candidate periodontal pathogens as causes of periodontitis and confirms that only limited epidemiological evidence is available. Several aspects of the contemporary understanding on causal inference are discussed with examples for periodontitis.
