The Special Issue on “Antioxidants and Periodontal Diseases” will focus on the roles played by antioxidants in modulating or ameliorating periodontal diseases. Such diseases are largely represented by chronic conditions and are prevalent in approximately 50% of adults in the USA (30-60% of the population above 35 yrs is affected in Europe, according to results from different studies). Exogenous and antioxidants supplemented/administered through dietary or pharmacological treatment are focal points for this issue, as are endogenous antioxidants, antioxidant systems/devices or other systems capable of affecting, directly and/or indirectly, the cell homeostasis, its redox balance and, definitively, its response to periodontal-linked stressors.
It has been widely demonstrated that oxidative stress and inflammation processes are deeply involved in the onset and development of periodontal diseases. Their mechanisms are often shared by other systemic chronic diseases which are the primary cause of disability worldwide (i.e., type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular diseases, atherosclerosis, etc.). Among the aims of this issue is the identification and discussion of all the modifiable inflammatory and redox-linked risk factors which are commonly shared by periodontal diseases and the various systemic chronic conditions mentioned above, with special attention to the possible role played by healthy nutrition and/or malnutrition.
