The scope of the study was to establish whether elimination of periodontal infection may impact the systemic maladies in patients on risk to be affected by a cardiovascular disease. At the same time, the systemic effects of the treatment of severe periodontites were assessed, by examining the modifications caused by the treatment upon the markers of inflammation, which are actually involved in atherosclerotic cardiovascular diseases, as well.
Materials and method: The study included a group of 94 patients with generalized severe periodontitis, in whom the periodontal modifications were followed up for 6 months from the beginning of the non-surgical periodontal treatment. The serological and clinical periodontal parameters were evaluated in the beginning of the study and then for 2 and, respectively, 6 months after the initiation of the non-surgical treatment.
Results and Discussion: The study analyzes the effects of non-surgical periodontal therapy upon the inflammation markers. It was demonstrated that a proper management of the periodontal infections reduces the markers of inflammation within a small segment of a population affected by severe and acute forms of periodontal diseases. Periodical stomatological control might prevent the occurrence and evolution of a periodontal pathology systemically influenced by the administration of drug therapy in cardiovascular diseases. Conclusions.The data obtained within the limited research of the present study demonstrate the inter-relation between general health condition and the periodontal disease.
