what cells are phagocytic and involved in periodontal infections? mast cells, macrophages, neutrophils
what cell is mainly involved in the body's immune response to invading bacteria? lymphocytes
what is responsible for the destruction in periodontal disease? direct effects of the bacteria and indirect effects by the body's own immune response
where is the first attempt at self protection from bacterial invasion come from supragingival enivornment
what is associated with periodontal bone resorption cytokines, prostaglandin E2
what cell remains in the blood stream and does not function to phagocytize until it migrates into the tissue monocyte
what cells are involved in regulating the activity of other cells cytokines
what substances are associated with gram negative bacteria and cause damage to the periodontium? endotoxin
what is a plasma cell make make antibodies
what is a mast cell make make histamine
what is a complement protein in serum that binds to bacteria
what is a T lymphocyte? produces cytokines
what is periodontal disease? inflammation of the gingival tissue where there is ulceration of the periodontal sulus or pocket, destruction of the underlying connective tissue
what is the prime etiological factor of periodontal disease? gingivitis and periodontitis
what is considered a secondary factor in periodontal disease? calculus
what is a secondary factor (definition) can be modified and affect the pathogenesis and progression of periodontal disease
how does calculus attach? organic pellicle, penetration into cementum, mechanical locking with surface irregularities, close adaptation to undersurface depressions
does mechanical irritation from calculus occur? NO
what is associated with gingivitis? bone loss does not occur, risk factors include poor oral hygiene and endocrine conditions
what medications are a contributing risk factor causing gingival enlargement? phenytonin, cyclosporine, nifedipine, valproate
what periodontal disease is described as inflammation of the gingiva without loss of clinical connective tissue attachment? dental plaque induced gingivitis
