Abstract

Microbial dysbiosis triggers inflammatory periodontitis. In this issue of JEM, Kim et al. (2023. J. Exp. Med.https://doi.org/10.1084/jem.20221751) demonstrate that neutrophil extracellular trap histones are the major mediators fueling the pathogenic Th17 inflammation that promotes gum and bone loss in periodontitis.
