in individuals with both IL-6 and IL-10 genotypes (p < 0.
An impressive 3-fold decrease in C-reactive protein and a rise in hemoglobin (Hb) levels in HD patients were reported to occur already after 4-6 weeks following traditional periodontal therapy
The intra-oral translocation of periopathogens jeopardizes the outcome of periodontal therapy
The classical periodontal therapy
includes scaling and root planing; however, more recent therapeutic approaches, such as total mouth disinfection and the use of systemic antibiotics, have modified classical therapies achieving better results in cases of aggressive periodontitis or advanced chronic periodontitis.
Circulating interleukin-6 and high-sensitivity C-reactive protein decrease after periodontal therapy
in otherwise healthy subjects.
Periodontal risk assessment (PRA) for patients in supporative periodontal therapy
Effects of periodontal therapy
during pregnancy on periodontal status, biologic parameters, and pregnancy outcomes: a pilot study.
A simple and practical conclusion that can be drawn from the studies, providing evidence that periodontitis may be an independent risk factor of CVD and that periodontal therapy
may reduce other metabolic CVD risk factors, could be that patients with known risk factors or a diagnosis of CVD should be examined for periodontitis and should eventually receive periodontal therapy
and vice versa--patients with periodontitis should not only receive periodontal treatment, but should be also checked for other risk factors of CVD.
may improve metabolic control--lower HbA1C--in diabetic patients, suggests research by the American Academy of Periodontology, Chicago.
Controlled release delivery of antimicrobials directly into periodontal pocket has received great interest and appears to hold some promise in periodontal therapy
After periodontal therapy
