Is localized aggressive periodontitis a distinct entity? Redefinition of a unique periodontal disease
Aggressive periodontitis is a questionable disease with limited evidence supporting its incidence and mechanism. Till now, the genetic hypothesis is the most acceptable theory that supports its presence. According to literature, several unproven theories were conducted that could not provide definite explanation to its behavior. The available evidence only supported the ability to restore the destructed tissues rather than controlling the disease. The aim of the present research is trying to postulate a new hypothesis that may clarify the nature of the localized form of aggressive periodontitis.
PlumX Metrics provide insights into the ways people interact with individual pieces of research output (articles, conference proceedings, book chapters, and many more) in the online environment. Examples include, when research is mentioned in the news or is tweeted about. Collectively known as PlumX Metrics, these metrics are divided into five categories to help make sense of the huge amounts of data involved and to enable analysis by comparing like with like.
