Abstract

The importance of the immune system in modulating the host response to plaque is well recognised, and in this context the immune system is clearly a risk/modifying factor for human periodontal disease. This review examines the periodontal manifestations of subjects with immunodeficiencies and considers potential preventive protocols for the periodontal management of these patients.
