The periodontal ligament (PDL) is of essential importance for the physiology of natural teeth. It consists of an aligned fibrous network that is interposed between, and attached to, the alveolar bone and the tooth root. The PDL provides mechanical stability and acts as a shock absorber for the high forces of mastication. Thijs de Jong’s thesis is centred on PDL tissue engineering and presents a concept for the tissue engineering of a PDL around dental implants.
