Models of pathogenesis help in integrating the data available from current scientific research, which aid in comprehensive understanding of the disease. This stereotypic representation of a disease in the form of a conceptual model helps in translation of new information into practical applications. The evolution in the knowledge of pathogenesis of periodontal disease can lead to a revolution in treatment modalities. The true purpose of pathogenesis models is to highlight the key aspects that need the main focus. Various models of periodontal disease pathogenesis have been proposed based on the prevailing concepts of the disease at that point of time. The aim of the present review is to outline the vital aspects of existing models of periodontal disease pathogenesis.
