ABSTRACT A comparison of the clinical status and salivary MMP levels after SRP alone or with ozonotherapy in patients with aggressive and chronic periodontitis.
The study was performed in 52 generally healthy subjects with chronic or aggressive periodontitis. Group CP-S consisted of 12 patients with chronic periodontitis, who underwent scaling and root planing (SRP). In group CP-O there were 25 patients with chronic periodontitis who additionaly to SRP underwent ozonotherapy. The same therapy was performed in group AP, containing 15 patients with aggressive periodontitis. Plaque index, approximal plaque index, bleeding on probing, sulcus bleeding index, probing pocket depth and clinical attachment loss were measured at baseline, at two weeks and two months post-therapy. The levels of MMP-1, MMP-8 and MMP-9 were estimated in non-stimulated saliva with an ELISA method.
All the clinical parameters assessed in the study groups were reduced after treatment. SRP with additional ozonotherapy provided an increase in MMP levels in patients with chronic periodontitis and a reduction in MMP levels in patients with aggressive periodontitis.
SRP followed by ozonotherapy does not lead to further improvement in clinical periodontal parameters in patients with AP and CP.

    ABSTRACT: Currently, only limited data are available from controlled clinical trials regarding the effect of irrigation by ozonated water in the treatment of periodontitis. The aim of the present study was to determine the clinical and biological effects of the adjunctive use of ozone in nonsurgical periodontal treatment. Forty-one patients with chronic periodontitis were randomized to treatment with either subgingival scaling and root planing (SRP) followed by irrigation with ozonated water (test) or subgingival SRP followed by irrigation with distilled water irrigation (control). The following parameters were evaluated at baseline (T0), 3 mo (T1): plaque index; gingival index; bleeding on probing; probing pocket depth; gingival recession; and clinical attachment loss. In addition, the serum concentrations of high sensitivity C-reactive protein were measured at T0 and T1. Forty-one patients with chronic periodontitis were included in the analysis (20 in the test group and 21 in the control group). There was statistically significant improvement in the study parameters in both groups between T0 and T1, except for gingival index. However, there were no significant differences in any study parameter between test and control groups. Irrigation with ozonated water as an adjunctive therapy to SRP produces no statistically significant benefit compared with SRP plus distilled water irrigation.

    ABSTRACT: We assessed periodontal status in patients with type 1 diabetes and healthy individuals in relation to their glycemic control, smoking and inflammatory biomarkers. Periodontal status was examined in 107 patients with diabetes and 40 controls, using Oral Hygiene Index (OHI), Community Periodontal Index (CPI) and tooth number. CPI values of 0-2 and 3-4 were classified as non-periodontitis and periodontitis, respectively. Blood samples were analyzed for glucose, HbA1c, CRP, fibrinogen, interleukin-1 and tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α). Periodontitis was found in 15.0% of the controls and 57.9% of diabetic patients, including 40.0% of these with good metabolic control (GMC) and 59.5% of those with poor metabolic control (PMC). Severe periodontitis was more frequent in the PMC than in the GMC group and in the controls (26.0% vs. 20.0% vs. 5.0%). The PMC patients had lower number of sextants with CPI 0 and higher number of sextants with CPI 3 and CPI 4 as well as lower tooth number in comparison with the controls. The patients with periodontitis had higher TNF-α (p<0.001) and OHI (p<0.001) than the patients without periodontitis. The number of sextants with CPI 0 correlated negatively with fibrinogen and TNF-α levels, whereas the number of sextants with CPI 3 correlated positively with TNF-α and fasting glucose level. There is good evidence that type 1 diabetes increases the risk of periodontal disease. Our results suggest that poor metabolic control of diabetes together with smoking and inadequate oral hygiene increase the risk of severe periodontal destruction in patients with type 1 diabetes.
