Periodontitis is a bacteria driven chronic inflammatory destructive disease of the tissues surrounding and supporting dental root. It is considered a complex disease, where mutiple causal factors simultaneously and interactively play a role in non-linear fashion: a small event may have larger consequences. In his research, Georgios Papantonopoulos applies complexity methods in the diagnosis of aggressive (AgP) and chronic (CP) periodontitis, in clustering implant-treated patients and functioning dental implants, and in predicting patient peri-implant or individual implant bone level.
