Event Description

12th Annual Claude L. Nabers, DDS, MS and Blanche Eaton Nabers Visiting Professorship in Periodontics

Presented by: Thomas E. Van Dyke, DDS, PhD

This presentation will review the resolutions of inflammation in the context of periodontal disease, clarify the role of bacteria in periodontitis, and explore therapeutic targets. As our understanding of inflammation has matured, resolving the molecular basis of inflammation, which is distinct from pharmacologic anti-inflammation, has emerged. Resolving inflammation is an active receptor agonist mediated well-orchestrated return of tissue homeostasis. Likewise, the isolation and resolution of endogenous lipid mediators, called lipoxins and resolvins, opened new doorways for the management of periodontitis, including periodontal regeneration.
