PDF: Periodontal Diseases in Children and Adolescents Affected by Systemic Disorders - A Literature Review


The purpose of this study was to review the current literature concerning periodontal disease in children and adolescents associated with the most common systemic disorders. 



The etiology of the systemic diseases, prevalence and incidence, microbiology, manifestations of the disease, oral symptoms and the possible therapeutic approaches will be discussed.

The most frequent form of periodontal diseases in children and adolescents is plaque-associated gingivitis, while periodontitis occurs seldom. When a systemic disorder is present, periodontitis can appear as a manifestation, as the immune system is unable to successfully defend against bacteria.
