So root scaling and planing are properly used as the first treatment for periodontitis.
Researchers began considering whether blueberry polyphenols could fight a species of bacteria associated with periodontitis based on their effectiveness against foodborne pathogens, according to a press release.
The severity of a regular alcohol user's existing periodontitis correlated incrementally with the frequency of his or her alcohol consumption.

This study demonstrates that berberine may act partly through the inhibition of MMP activity and that berberine is effective in the treatment of periodontitis through reduced inflammation and attenuated degradation of tissue.
gingivalis levels were higher than in controls but lower than in patients with periodontitis.
In the data and results section of this paper, gingivitis is labeled as 1, periodontitis is labeled as 2, and the 3 stages of periodontitis are labeled as A, B, and C; with A being slight, B being moderate, and C as advanced.
Since Oxantel was known to inhibit fumarate reductase in some bacteria, they then successfully tested its ability to inhibit fumarate reductase activity in Porphyromonas gingivalis, one of the major bacterial components of periodontitis biofilms.
Based on their findings, Divaris and his team propose that genes in the immune and nervous systems play off of one another to predispose people to chronic periodontitis, and that smoking interacts with these genes to increase that risk.
Aggressive periodontitis can be either localised or generalised, depending on the percentage of sites affected (< 30% localised and > 30% generalised) [Modeer and Wondimu, 2000; Wiebe and Putnins 2000].
Those who reported consuming at least some DHA on the previous day were about 20 percent less likely to have periodontitis than those who reported consuming none.
