Periodontitis is a chronic inflammatory disease of tooth supporting tissues resulting in periodontal tissue destruction, which may ultimately lead to tooth loss. The pathogenetic mechanisms of periodontitis are not fully elucidated. The disease is characterized by continuous leukocyte infiltration, likely mediated by local cytokine and chemokine production. There are no serologic biomarkers for the diagnosis of periodontitis, which is based solely on the degree of local tissue destruction. The aim of this study was to identify serological biomarkers for periodontitis by analyzing a spectrum of cytokines in serum from subjects with and without periodontitis and also to investigate if the detected cytokines were expressed by gingival fibroblasts, the most abundant cell type in the inflamed periodontium. We mapped serum cytokine and chemokine levels from periodontitis subjects and healthy controls. We used multivariate partial least squares (PLS) modeling and identified monocyte chemoattractant ...
This study aimed to investigate the effect of experimental periodontitis on rat penis. Eighteen Wistar rats underwent the placement of a cotton ligature around the first molars to induce periodontitis. It was confirmed that periodontitis was induced in the group with ligature due to the greater number of osteoclasts, decreased osteocytes, greater distance from the cementoenamel junction to the alveolar crest, increase in gingival swelling (p |0.05) and intense bone resorption. Furthermore, there was a higher average concentration of IL-6 in the gingival samples and of TNFα in the penile samples of the rats with ligature (p |0.05). There was a statistically significant thicker and smaller area of the dorsal penile arteries in the experimental group, as well as a smaller area of the vascular spaces of the corpora cavernosa (p|0.05). Therefore, the systemic inflammation caused by periodontal disease can be an important risk factor for erectile dysfunction.

N2 - Several reports have demonstrated a possible association of periodontal infections with coronary heart disease (CHD) by elevated antibody titre to periodontopathic bacteria in CHD patients compared with non-diseased controls. Although each periodontopathic bacterium may vary in virulence for periodontitis and atherosclerosis, antibody response to multiple bacteria in CHD patients has not been understood fully. Therefore, serum levels of antibody to 12 periodontopathic bacteria together with other atherosclerotic risk markers were compared among 51 patients ...
Author: press release. The bacteria that cause periodontitis, a disease affecting the tissues surrounding the teeth, seems to play a part also in the onset of pancreatic cancer, say the researchers at the University of Helsinki and the Helsinki University Hospital, Finland, and the Karolinska Institutet, Sweden.. The researchers have investigated the role of bacteria causing periodontitis, an inflammation of the tissues surrounding the teeth, in the development of oral cancers and certain other cancers, as well as the link between periodontitis and cancer mortality on the population level.. The study, published in the British Journal of Cancer, has for the first time proven the existence of a mechanism on the molecular level through which the bacteria associated with periodontitis, Treponema denticola (Td), may also have an effect on the onset of cancer. Researchers found that the primary virulence factor of the Td bacteria, the Td-CTLP proteinase (an enzyme), occurs also in malignant tumors of ...
In Europe, cirrhosis is responsible for 1-2% of all deaths and is the leading cause of liver transplantation.1,2 Periodontitis is a bacterially induced inflammatory disease that affects the supporting tissues of the teeth, characterised by the deepening of periodontal pockets due to loss of connective tissue attachment and bone. Untreated, periodontitis may result in tooth loss. Periodontitis is prevalent in the adult population, with over 35% having periodontitis and 10-15% having severe forms of the disease.3,4 Several studies have assessed the association between periodontitis and cardiovascular diseases, cirrhosis, chronic kidney disease, diabetes mellitus, and respiratory diseases, and an increasing number of studies have suggested that periodontitis may affect the course of systemic diseases.5 Poor oral health and periodontitis are very frequent in patients with cirrhosis.5 In addition, studies have suggested that periodontitis is involved in the progression of liver diseases, and that it ...
Periodontitis: Causes, Risk Factors, and Treatment Periodontitis is the inflammation in the teeth and supporting gums. It is a serious gum disease that can result in gum damage and can even destroy the jaw bone. Periodontitis is caused by certain periodontal bacteria in the form of dental plaque. A layer of bacteria and food debris gets build-up on areas that are hard to reach and hence results in periodontitis. Periodontitis always begins with inflammation of the gums commonly called gingivitis. Sometimes it results in bleeding when you brush your teeth. You might notice a discolored bacterial layer on your teeth, if left untreated may result in chronic diseases or tooth loss. Periodontal Treatment: The key to eliminating the periodontitis is by triggering the diseases through diagnosis. As the disease progress, the teeth can be damaged. Hence, it is necessary that the disease should be treated as early as possible. It is important to remove plaque and associated bacteria to resume dental ...
Periodontitis, also known as gum disease and pyorrhea, is a set of inflammatory diseases affecting the tissues surrounding the teeth. Periodontitis involves progressive loss of the alveolar bone around the teeth, and if left untreated, can lead to the loosening and subsequent loss of teeth. Periodontitis is caused by microorganisms that adhere to and grow on the tooths surfaces, along with an over-aggressive immune response against these microorganisms. A diagnosis of periodontitis is established by inspecting the soft gum tissues around the teeth with a probe (i.e., a clinical examination) and by evaluating the patients X-ray films (i.e., a radiographic examination), to determine the amount of bone loss around the teeth. Specialists in the treatment of periodontitis are periodontists; their field is known as "periodontology" or "periodontics". The 1999 classification system for periodontal diseases and conditions listed seven major categories of periodontal diseases, of which 2-6 are termed ...
The periodontist is mainly concerned with preventing the onset of gum disease (periodontal disease), diagnosing conditions affecting the gums and jawbone, and treating gingivitis, periodontitis and bone loss. Periodontal disease is a progressive condition and the leading cause of tooth loss among adults in the developed world.. The periodontist is able to treat mild, moderate and advanced gum disease by first addressing the bacterial infection at the root of the problem, providing periodontal treatment, then providing information and education on good oral hygiene and the effective cleaning of the teeth.. The most common conditions treated by the periodontist are:. Gingivitis - This is the mild inflammation of the gums that may or may not be signified by pain and bleeding.. Mild/moderate periodontitis - When the pockets between the teeth and the soft tissues are measured to be between 4-6mm it is classified as moderate periodontitis (gum disease).. Advanced periodontitis - When the pockets ...
Chronic periodontitis and DM have close relationship, especially in DM patient with uncontrolled hyperglycemia [13]. In uncontrolled DM patient, periodontitis is more severe in its prevalence and severity [14]. Likewise, periodontitis also affects DM as periodontitis itself can worsen glycemic control of DM patient [15]. Mechanism of this interrelations between periodontitis and DM is still not fully understood, but the receptor activator of nuclear factor-κB (RANK)/RANK ligand/osteoprotegerin axis, receptor for advanced glycation end products pathway and oxidative stress mechanism are reported to be related in recent research [16].. DM is a very frequent metabolic disorder characterized by the presence of chronic hyperglycemia because of low levels of both insulin secretion and its action [14]. T1DM is a type of juvenile diabetes that accounts for more than 85% of all diabetes patients under 20 years of age, accounting for 5%-10% of the worlds DM population. T2DM accounts for 90% of diabetes ...
p,Background: Only a few studies have examined the association between periodontitis and glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) levels in individuals without diabetes. The aim of this study is to compare HbA1c levels in individuals without diabetes and with and without periodontitis before and after non-surgical periodontal therapy. Methods: This comparative study was done on individuals without diabetes who were 35 to 65 years old. Group A consisted of 30 individuals without periodontitis, and group B consisted of 30 individuals with periodontitis. Body mass indices and clinical parameters, including oral hygiene indexsimplified (OHI-S) score, gingival index (GI), probing depth (PD), clinical attachment level (CAL), and HbA1c level, of all participants were recorded. All participants received non-surgical periodontal therapy (scaling and root planing). After 3 months, all participants were reexamined, and clinical parameters and HbA1c levels were evaluated and compared to baseline values. Results: There ...
The association between diagnosed periodontitis, a common chronic oral infection, and metabolic symptoms continues to be reported. threat of CHD [5]. Great degrees of Immunoglobulin G (IgG) antibody titers to may also be seen in periodontitis sufferers [6]. With this association using the chronic inflammatory response, it really is postulated that periodontitis might improve atherosclerosis in sufferers with MS, resulting in early CHD. Great degrees of C-reactive proteins (CRP), a powerful and delicate systemic marker of irritation, have already been reported in sufferers with MS [7,8]. Many research have got reported raised CRP levels in periodontitis individuals [9C11] also. Therefore, the function of CRP must be further examined by taking into consideration the effects of various other factors, such as for example oral attacks that could enhance CRP levels and keep maintaining a low-grade systemic irritation. The antibody response to periodontopathic amounts and bacteria of CRP could possibly ...
Objectives: The aim of the present cross-sectional study was to investigate the association between serum glycosylated haemoglobin (HbA1c) levels and periodontal status in patients with periodontitis (CP) and periodontally healthy controls. Furthermore, the objectives were to determine if the periodontitis influenced the serum HbA1c levels. Materials and methods: A total of 93 patients with CP and 95 periodontally healthy subjects were enrolled in the present study using a cross-sectional design. At baseline, patients were examined and characterized on a regular basis for blood serum parameters and non-fasting blood samples levels. In all patients, a full periodontal examination was performed and clinical attachment loss (CAL) was the primary outcome variable chosen. The spearman correlation, a stepwise multivariable linear regression, and Jonckheere-Terpstra tests were applied in order to assess the relationship between HbA1c levels and periodontitis. Results: Patients in the CP group presented ...
Periodontitis is a chronic inflammatory disease characterized by destruction of periodontal tissue ultimately leading to bone destruction and has been associated with other inflammatory diseases, such as atherosclerosis. Attachment loss of periodontal tissue is primarily caused by host cell-derived immune responses against subgingival biofilm. The aim of the present study was to determine the cytokine profile in serum, saliva and gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) patients with periodontitis and healthy controls. We show that periodontitis patients exhibit higher numbers of periodontal pathogens and their immune responses are significantly altered. The levels of IL-6 in saliva and GCF were significantly suppressed, and while CXCL8 was not altered in serum, its expression levels were significantly suppressed in saliva and elevated in GCF. The T-cell-derived cytokine IL-2 did not differ between patients and controls in serum and saliva, but there was a significant suppression in GCF of patients. ...
By Borrell, Luisa N Burt, Brian A; Neighbors, Harold W; Taylor, George W Objectives. We assessed the prevalences of periodontitis by education and income levels among US adults with data from the third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. Methods. The study was limited to non-Hispanic Blacks, Mexican Americans, and non- Hispanic Whites 50 years of age or older with a complete periodontal assessment during the dental examination. Results. Blacks with higher education and income levels had a significantly higher prevalence of periodontitis than their White and Mexican-American counterparts. The relationship between income level and periodontitis was modified by race/ethnicity. High-income Blacks exhibited a higher prevalence of periodontitis than did low- income Blacks and high-income Whites. Conclusions. Our findings call attention to the importance of recognizing socioeconomic status-related health differences across racial/ethnic groups within the social, political, and historical ...
Periodontal pathology, also termed gum diseases or periodontal diseases, are diseases involving the periodontium (the tooth supporting structures, i.e. the gums). The periodontium is composed of alveolar bone, periodontal ligament, cementum and gingiva. An internationally agreed classification formulated at the World Workshop in Clinical Periodontics in 1989 divided periodontal diseases into 5 groups: adult periodontitis, early-onset periodontitis, periodontitis associated with systemic disease, necrotizing ulcerative peirodontitis and refactory periodontitis. In 1993 at the 1st European Workshop in Periodontology the earlier classification was simplified and the categories periodontitis associated with systemic disease and refractory periodontitis were dropped. Both of these classification systems were widely used in clinical and research settings. However, they failed to address a gingival disease component, had overlapping categories with unclear classification criteria and over focussed on ...

What are the Common Symptoms of Periodontitis?. Periodontitis usually starts out as gingivitis or inflammation of the gums. Your gums become highly sensitive. They are tender, inflamed, and easily irritated. They tend to bleed during brushing or flossing. Sometimes you notice pus in your gum tissue.. Your teeth are likewise sensitive. You may find it uncomfortable or painful to chew your food.. If you do not address the problem immediately, gingivitis will eventually lead to periodontitis, a more serious and advanced form of gum disease, which destroys the bones and tissues around the teeth.. You may notice your gums pulling away from your teeth. You may also have a problem of malocclusion. Your upper and lower teeth do not fit comfortably together when you bite or chew. Some teeth may become loose. You may find that some of your partial dentures suddenly do not fit well anymore.. You notice that you have persistent bad breath. You also experience a chronic, unexplained unpleasant taste in your ...
Researchers compared the effect of a daily atorvastatin 80 mg dose versus a 10 mg dose in a randomized, multi-center trial with 71 subjects with established atherosclerosis or risk factors for atherosclerosis. Patients were evaluated using F-Flurodexoyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) imaging. After 12 weeks, there was a significant reduction in periodontal inflammation in subjects randomized to the 80 mg dose (p=0.04). Reductions in periodontal inflammation were greatest in individuals with higher levels of periodontal inflammation at baseline (p=0.01) and in those with higher periodontal bone loss at baseline (p=0.03). The reductions in periodontal inflammation correlated with reductions in carotid inflammation (p,0.001). "The impact of high-dose statin was greatest in individuals with evidence of active periodontitis and was evident after a four-week treatment period," said lead author Sharath Subramanian, MD, Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School, Boston. "We ...
Please visit the ISPRD 2013 DVD page for information about all 62 DVDs which are now available.. The majority of our patients suffer from different degrees of cardiovascular disease concurrently with periodontitis and its sequelae linked to tooth loss and the resulting masticatory dysfunction. Management of periodontitis is more complex in these patients: The medical risk profile, the medications, and the management of the common risk factors are challenging and require specialist attention. Optimal management cannot ignore the emerging evidence that periodontitis may be a modifiable risk factor (and surely is a risk marker) of atherosclerosis and cardiovascular events such as stroke or myocardial infarction. This, along with the need to preserve a healthy dentition, masticatory function, and oral esthetics and well-being, provides the rationale for optimal control of periodontitis in these populations even in older patients. On the other hand, periodontal therapy might increase the short-term ...
Staphylococci isolated from subgingival samples of patients with advanced periodontitis were tested for leukocidal activity. Intact organisms, bacterial sonicates or bacterial culture supernatants were incubated with human neutrophils that had been prelabeled with 51chromium. The majority of Staphylococcus aureus periodontal isolates provoked dose-dependent extracellular release of the radiolabel. By contrast, other strains of staphylococci had marginal or no demonstrable leukocidal activity. Leukocidal activity was heat-sensitive and was neutralized by horse anti-leukocidin antibodies. The results indicate that S. aureus colonizing human periodontal lesions elaborate a leukocidin that may conceivably destroy neutrophils that emigrate into the gingival region. This could adversely affect the overall status of this antimicrobial defense system in the gingival area and contribute to the pathogenicity of S. aureus as well as other potential periodontopathic organisms.
In the course of long-term infection with in adult periodontitis, a specific antibody response to this organism is generated. antibodies to crude antigen preparations of has been implicated as an important etiologic agent in periodontal diseases, particularly adult periodontitis and rapidly progressive periodontitis (5, 24). A number of investigators have found elevated levels of immunoglobulin G (IgG) antibody to this organism in patients sera and suggested the feasibility of measuring antibody titers LDH-B antibody as a laboratory test that could delineate the says of periodontitis (6, 32). However, examination of the antibody response pattern has, so far, not been very useful for the categorization of individuals into clinical classifications. Some healthy individuals possess levels of anti-antibody titers comparable to those in sufferers, while the amounts in some sufferers stay within the number of these GDC-0449 in healthy topics (25). Presumably, cross-reactive antigens conserved over ...
Periodontitis is a multifactorial disease. It is a result of complex interplay of pathogens, host and environment. Among the pathogenic organisms, the role of bacteria is fully explained. However the recent researches have focussed on other pathogens in the etiopathogenesis of periodontal diseases. Several studies have proved the association between viruses and periodontal diseases especially human herpes virus (HHV).The main aim of this review is to summarizes the evidence that link various herpes viruses to periodontitis, and to explain the possible mechanisms behind this process.. ...
The present large-scale, general population-based data suggest that distinct species have a different carriage profile, depending on variables such as age group, educational level, smoking history, and periodontal status. In general, the carriage of periodontal pathogens proved to be common, and only 12% of the 1,294 subjects were free of all six target bacteria examined. More than half of the population had T. forsythensis, one-third T. denticola, P. gingivalis or C. rectus, and one-fifth P. intermedia or A. actinomycetemcomitans. Logistic regression models revealed different variables to be associated with distinct species in dentate subjects.. Periodontitis-associated organisms colonize not only subgingival sites, but also supragingival sites (20, 35), and appear in saliva (5, 7, 8, 15, 30, 32). Stimulation by masticating a piece of paraffin looses still-attached microorganisms or clumps of microorganisms from oral biofilms into salivary sediment. According to Umeda et al. (30), whole saliva ...

Periodontal disease, a common chronic oral inflammatory disease is characterized by destruction of soft tissue and bone of tooth. Atherosclerosis starts early in life, since disease progression is usually slow, clinical symptoms or hospitalization are rare before 40 years of age. Epidemiological associations between periodontitis and cardiovascular disease have been reported by several studies1,2. Periodontitis and atherosclerosis have complex etiologies, genetic and gender predispositions and may share pathogenic mechanisms as well as common risk factors. It is becoming increasingly clear that infections and chronic inflammatory conditions such as periodontitis may influence the atherosclerotic process. The crucial casual relation might be established by prospective treatment studies, which elucidate the connection between treatment of poor health and systemic inflammatory marker3,4. Haemostatic and theological variable are associated with both prevalent and incident cardiovascular disease, and ...
Introduction. Periodontal diseases are bacterial infections associated with a complex microbiota of the dental biofilm that induces a local and systemic inflammatory response, leading to periodontal tissue destruction (Page and Kornam, 1997; Paster et al., 2006; Socransky et al., 1998). The mi-crobial diversity of the human oral cavity has been recognized for decades, and over 700 species have been identified in this habitat (Paster et al., 2006). In addition to the resident oral species, studies have shown that the oral cavity harbours high proportions of various medically important pathogens, particularly in individuals with poor oral hygiene, periodontal diseases and/or immunosuppression (Ali et al., 1994, 1996; Botero et al., 2007; Colombo et al., 2002, 2009; Da Silva-Boghossian et al., 2011; Fritschi et al., 2008; Gonçalves etal., 2009; Persson etal., 2008; Slots et al., 1988, 1990; Souto and Colombo 2008; Souto et al., 2006). Conceivably, these species may disseminate to distant body ...
Almost half of adults living in the U.S. age 30 and over have periodontal disease, according to a recent study by researchers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The study, published in the Journal of Dental Research, estimates that over 47% of adults, representing 64.7 million adults, had periodontitis-38% of the adult population age 30 and older and 64% of adults age 65 and older had either moderate or severe periodontitis.

Background: This study investigated the possible association of nifedipine (NIF) intake and diabetes mellitus (DM) with periodontal destruction. Methods: A group of Chinese subjects (N = 1,083, age: 63 ± 8.7 years) were screened. Three hundred fifty-eight non-smokers with hypertension were selected for the study and were grouped based on DM status as non-DM and DM groups, DM(-) and DM(+) respectively. NIF(+) and NIF(-) indicated NIF intake or not. The groups were further divided: NIF(-)/DM(-) (n = 135); NIF(+)/DM(-) (n = 108); NIF(-)/DM(+) (n = 64); and NIF(+)/DM(+) (n = 51). The periodontal conditions in anterior teeth were assessed using plaque index, sulcus bleeding index, clinical attachment loss (AL), probing depth (PD), and the number of missing teeth. Results: Using analysis of covariance, NIF intake was associated with mean PD and extent of PD ≥4 mm in the non-DM and DM groups. The subjects in the NIF(+)/DM(+) subgroup showed greater mean AL and percentage of sites with AL ≥5 mm and ...

Calcification of the carotid artery is linked to cardiovascular diseases. Periodontitis increases risks for ischemic heart diseases over time.. ...
Certain people are more likely to experience periodontitis. Smokers are more likely to have it. Your risk also increases with age and if you have diabetes. While you cant stop getting older, you can quit smoking and you can stay on top of your blood sugar levels if you are diabetic.. Its also a good idea to see a dentist on a regular basis. Your dentist will catch any signs of gum disease early on so it will never have to get so bad that you lose your teeth. If your teeth are too crooked to clean easily, you may need braces.. Proper tooth care can go a long way toward preventing gum problems. Make sure you brush at least twice a day and floss once. Just these simple steps can help eliminate most causes of gingivitis. Using an antibacterial mouth wash is also important.. Remember that poor oral health can affect your overall health. It can increase your chances of heart disease and cause fertility problems and even premature labor in pregnant women. Its important to stay on top of your gum and ...

Periodontitis can almost always be cured. Dedicated preventive routines, along with supplementation and necessary lifestyle changes, can allow your body to rid itself of the infection. Depending on how advanced the condition is you may need professional treatment ranging from maintenance visits to surgical therapies. In extremely advanced stages of the disease it may be impossible, requiring extraction of the teeth to rid the body of the chronic infection.
