The available diagnoses found on the patient charts include: gingivitis, slight periodontitis, moderate periodontitis, and advanced periodontitis.
Patients with advanced and moderate periodontitis were on the average older (48 years) than the control patients (45.5 yrs); this difference was significant (Table 1) with females predominating.

Mean pocket depth for each subgroup showed that all subgroups had moderate periodontitis but when that added to mean gingival recession, the attachment loss was about 7mm i.e.
