Future Drug Targets in Periodontal Personalized Medicine—A Narrative Review

Periodontal diseases consist of a cluster of pathological conditions initiated by a complex microbial community causing inflammation within the supporting tissues of the teeth leading to attachment and tooth loss. Severe periodontitis is one of the leading causes 2 of 14 of tooth loss worldwide. Periodontitis is thought to affect 20–50% of the world’s population and is the 11th most prevalent disease globally.
