Determining the Relationship Between the Atherosclerosis and Periodontopathogenic Microorganisms

2016-12-01 16:08:22 | BioPortfolio


Determine the relationship between the systemic indications of atherosclerosis by means of the change in the ratio of periodontopathogenic microorganisms following periodontal treatment of individuals who have been diagnosed with chronic periodontitis-atherosclerosis and for individuals who have been diagnosed with systemically healthy-chronic periodontitis.


It has been aimed in this study to compare 1) the change in periodontal status; 2) the change of the periodontopathogen microorganisms (A. actinomycetemcomitans, P. gingivalis, T. forsythia, T. denticola, P. intermedia, P. micros, F. nucleatum/periodonticum, C. rectus, E. nodatum, E. corrodens, and C. gingivalis/ochracea/sputigena) in dental plaque samples, 3) the changes of the amounts of HDL, LDL, hs-CRP white blood cell levels (WBC), platelet levels (PLT), creatinine, and fibrinogen in serum samples; and 4) the correlation between periodontopathogen microorganisms (A. actinomycetemcomitans, P. gingivalis, T. forsythia, T. denticola, P. intermedia, P. micros, F. nucleatum/periodonticum, C. rectus, E. nodatum, E. corrodens, and C. gingivalis/ochracea/sputigena) and HDL, LDL, hs-CRP WBC, PLT, creatinine, and fibrinogen in patients that have been diagnosed with atherosclerosis-chronic periodontitis and systemic healthy patients and patients diagnosed with chronic periodontitis, following non surgical periodontal treatment.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Loss or destruction of periodontal tissue caused by periodontitis or other destructive periodontal diseases or by injury during instrumentation. Attachment refers to the periodontal ligament which attaches to the alveolar bone. It has been hypothesized that treatment of the underlying periodontal disease and the seeding of periodontal ligament cells enable the creating of new attachment.

Any restorative and replacement device that is used as a therapeutic aid in the treatment of periodontal disease. It is an adjunct to other forms of periodontal therapy and does not cure periodontal disease by itself. (Boucher's Clinical Dental Terminology, 3d ed)

Surgical dressings, after periodontal surgery, applied to the necks of teeth and the adjacent tissue to cover and protect the surgical wound. (Boucher's Clinical Dental Terminology, 4th ed, p218)

Surgical excision of the gingiva at the level of its attachment, thus creating new marginal gingiva. This procedure is used to eliminate gingival or periodontal pockets or to provide an approach for extensive surgical interventions, and to gain access necessary to remove calculus within the pocket. (Dorland, 28th ed)

A numerical rating scale for classifying the periodontal status of a person or population with a single figure which takes into consideration prevalence as well as severity of the condition. It is based upon probe measurement of periodontal pockets and on gingival tissue status.
