The Effect of Periodontal Treatment on the Level of Free Radicals in the Saliva

2014-08-27 03:19:38 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This study will examine the relationship between free radicals in the saliva and periodontitis. 30 adults, 15 with periodontitis and 15 as a control group will give a sample of saliva before treatment and after treatment. The investigators will examine the free radicals in both groups.

Description

Periodontal disease is a chronic adult condition. Bacteria implicated in the etiology of this disease causes destruction of connective tissue and bone. As a result of stimulation by bacterial antigen PMN produces free radicals via respiratory burst as a part of host response to infection.

Free radicals can be defined as molecules or molecular fragments with an unpaired electron which imparts certain characteristics to the free radicals such as reactivity . Reactive free radicals are able to produce chemical modifications and to damage proteins, lipids, carbohydrates and nucleotides in the tissues.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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)

Chronic inflammation and loss of PERIODONTIUM that is associated with the amount of DENTAL PLAQUE or DENTAL CALCULUS present. Chronic periodontitis occurs mostly in adults and was called adult periodontitis, but this disease can appear in young people.

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.

A periodontal pathogen which is a gram-negative member of BACTEROIDETES. It is implicated in PERIODONTITIS.

A gram-negative gliding bacterium isolated from the oral cavity. It is a pathogen often causing PERIODONTITIS.
