Development and implementation of a diagnostic, preventive and prognostic strain-level microbial test for peri-implant diseases

Project description

Profiling of dental plaque microbes to fight peri-implant diseases

Diseases affecting dental implants such as peri-implantitis are caused by dental plaque bacteria. However, profiling of the microbial communities around dental implants is not part of standard healthcare. The key objective of the EU-funded PB3P project is to develop a product for dental clinics that combines high-resolution metagenomic profiling and predictive machine learning methods. This will help delineate a reproducible microbial signature for peri-implant diseases and formulate treatment policies for maintaining dental care. Importantly, the PB3P solution will take into consideration plaque microbiome diversity towards a personalised approach for dental clinics.
