However, novel therapeutic management strategies exist, from prevention to efficient treatment, and regeneration. The need of integrative approaches to circumvent this worldwide pledge can be achieved through:
  • A better understanding of this complex disease by promoting scientific research and a comprehensive multidisciplinary approach, including epidemiology, microbiology, immunology, physiology, therapeutics, psychology, etc. 
  • A better outreach by promoting vulgarization and recommendations for health professionals. 
  • A better information of the empowered patients, leading them to consider prevention and to take part in their therapeutic course.
The book “Periodontitis: Advances in Experimental Research” includes a timely collection of chapters covering all the fields of research about periodontitis, consisting in concise reviews by the best specialists themselves and with clinical perspectives for periodontitis.

"This book helps in understanding the relationship between microorganisms and oral carcinogenesis, and the possible oncogenic mechanisms enhancing the association. The book highlights the association between oral cancer, primarily oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC), a major global health problem with high incidence and low survival rates with infection and inflammation. Establishing the association of the oral microbiome with cancer risk may lead to significant advances in the understanding cancer etiology, potentially opening a new research paradigm for cancer prevention.

The book takes the readers through interesting topics such as the epidemiology and etiology of OSCC, the hallmarks of cancer, and the role of inflammation in OCSS. It presents the difference between the normal and diseased oral microbiome. It further describes the carcino-pathogenesis of various groups. Finally, it discusses the clinical correlation of the observations and what the future looks like for this area of research.

The book is interesting for medical students, researchers and clinicians, alike. The knowledge from the book can be exploited practically and used for designing further experiments." From the publisher's website.

"This book answers questions about the critical role of ultrasound in the management of patients with Sjögren’s syndrome. It also covers developments rheumatologists can foresee in performing a biopsy of the parotid gland.

Each chapter is authored by experts on this condition, emphasizing the extent of current understanding and dealing with unanswered challenges and pitfalls. Topics such as modern imaging techniques like ultrasound and MRI and their importance are given particular focus in this book; practitioners are increasingly using imaging techniques to refine diagnosis and guide clinical management. Additionally, as a significant emerging point of interest in the field, biopsy of the major salivary glands, particularly ultrasound-guided procedures, receives extra attention within the text. The book also includes a chapter that deals with future directions and will also review the challenges patients face with unmanaged Sjögren’s syndrome.
