Why is every patient different? State of the art of local Microflora

Different proportion and species of pathogens can be related to periodontal diseases. Therefore, different bacterial compositions require specific ways of treating various kinds of periodontal diseases.

Since the late 1980s, a considerable number of studies have proven that bacteria are the primary etiological factor for periodontal disease. Today, many different species involved in its aetiology are known. However, nearly all of these studies included only European and North American participants. Now, some more recent studies have suggested that the bacteria involved in periodontal disease might vary between patients owing to local microflora. These findings could have some major implications for the treatment of periodontal disease.
