Discussing Periodontology with Dr. Marc Quirynen

Professor Marc Quirynen DDS, PhD, expert in periodontology, with an extensive curriculum in the field, over 300 published scientific articles and a member of the editorial board of the Journal of Clinical Periodontology, among others, addresses the latest advances in the profession and reflects upon changes in how we understand periodontology.

For Dr. Marc Quirynen, the most significant change in recent years within periodontology has been understanding that bacteria are organised in the form of biofilms around teeth and implants, and that this has implications at different levels: aetiology of periodontal disease, antibiotic resistance, clinical protocols, etc.

The latest research in this field is aimed mainly at improving the results of periodontal treatment, including implant therapy and preventing disease recurrence through optimal prevention.
