Aggressive periodontitis, which encompasses a number of clinical entities, probably results from the mobilization of tissue's destructive mechanisms which are common to most forms of periodontal diseases. The unique attributes of the disease process are due to the virulence of the pathogens and the host susceptibility may be due to the heritable or acquired susceptibility factors, which permit expression of periodontitis at a relatively younger age.

Abstract


Aggressive periodontitis, which encompasses a number of clinical entities, probably results from the mobilization of tissue's destructive mechanisms which are common to most forms of periodontal diseases. The unique attributes of the disease process are due to the virulence of the pathogens and the host susceptibility may be due to the heritable or acquired susceptibility factors, which permit expression of periodontitis at a relatively younger age.
