To assess the local effect of the antimicrobial therapy using clarithromycin association with photodynamic therapy (PDT) in the treatment of generalized aggressive periodontitis (GAgP).
The aim of the present study was to evaluate the local effect of the antimicrobial therapy using clarithromycin (CLM) association with photodynamic therapy (PDT) in the treatment of generalized aggressive periodontitis (GAgP). Sixty periodontal pockets were select and randomly assigned into four groups: Periodontal Debridement (PD) (n=15): periodontal pockets that received periodontal debridement (PD) with placebo; PD+CLM (n=15): periodontal pockets that received periodontal debridement associated with clarithromycin; PD+PDT (n=15): periodontal pockets that received periodontal debridement associated with photodynamic therapy; PD+CLM+PDT (n=15): periodontal pockets that received periodontal debridement associated with clarithromycin and photodynamic therapy. Probing depth (PD),gain in clinical attachment level (CAL) and bleeding on probing (BOP) were evaluated at baseline, 3 and 6 months post- operatively.

Inflammation and loss of connective tissues supporting or surrounding the teeth. This may involve any part of the PERIODONTIUM. Periodontitis is currently classified by disease progression (CHRONIC PERIODONTITIS; AGGRESSIVE PERIODONTITIS) instead of age of onset. (From 1999 International Workshop for a Classification of Periodontal Diseases and Conditions, American Academy of Periodontology)
Removal or disruption of DENTAL DEPOSITS and plaque-retentive DENTAL CALCULUS from tooth surfaces and within the periodontal pocket space without deliberate removal of CEMENTUM as done in ROOT PLANING and often in DENTAL SCALING. The goal is to conserve dental cementum to help maintain or re-establish healthy periodontal environment and eliminate PERIODONTITIS by using light instrumentation strokes and nonsurgical techniques (e.g., ultrasonic, laser instruments).
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.
The purified component of HEMATOPORPHYRIN DERIVATIVE, it consists of a mixture of oligomeric porphyrins. It is used in photodynamic therapy (HEMATOPORPHYRIN PHOTORADIATION); to treat malignant lesions with visible light and experimentally as an antiviral agent. It is the first drug to be approved in the use of PHOTODYNAMIC THERAPY in the United States.
Inflammation and loss of PERIODONTIUM that is characterized by rapid attachment loss and bone destruction in the presence of little local factors such as DENTAL PLAQUE and DENTAL CALCULUS. This highly destructive form of periodontitis often occurs in young people and was called early-onset periodontitis, but this disease also appears in old people.
