  • The ultimate goal of a clinical periodontal evaluation is to determine the periodontal health status of an individual and to let us quantify the differences between a healthy and a diseased periodontum. And this bring us to the question…
  • This figure ilustrates the difference when probing a healthy sulcus and a periodontal pocket.
  • Here are some examples to ilustrate how this measure is calculated
  • This is how we measure gingival recession and the technique consists of placing the probe’s tip at the gingival crest and measuring the distance to the CEJ so that in this example the measure will be approximately minus 5 mm Some of the causes for gingival recession include:

    37. 37. Literature on Periodontitis and Diabetes<br />Over 50 cross-sectional associations. Only few longitudinal studies <br />A meta-analysis among type 2 diabetic patients showed an improvement after aggressive periodontal treatment, weighted mean difference of HbA1C before and after therapy of -0.40% (95% CI -0.77 to -0.04%, P = 0.03). Teeuw WJ, et al. Diabetes Care. 2010 <br /> Not clear if A1c improvement due to perio improvement or due to antibiotics<br />

    39. 39. Periodontal Therapy and Insulin Resistance<br />Only one clinical trial among type 2 diabetes patients showed that periodontal therapy was associated with decreased insulin resistance. Talbert J et al. J Dent Hyg. 2006<br />Some RCTs showed positive findings; others showed no significant reduction in the level of plasma glucose. <br />Inconsistent results from cross-sectional studies<br />

    41. 41. Conclusions for Diabetes Periodontitis Association<br />The association between periodontitis and type 2 diabetes is potentially bidirectional, but neither direction has been established <br />Periodontal treatment including antibiotics could lead to improvement in HbA1c <br />Periodontitis is associated with several risks factors for diabetes as well as with diabetes complications <br />More well designed longitudinal studies and clinical trials are needed <br />
