ABSTRACT

Introducción: En la última clasificación que se ha realizado de las enfermedades periodontales (World Workshop de 1999), se ha modificado la asignación de periodontitis como manifestación de enfermedades sistémicas. El objetivo de este trabajo es conocer las distintas enfermedades que pueden estar asociadas en mayor o menor grado con alteraciones a nivel del periodonto. Material, métodos y resultados: Para la realización de este trabajo se han analizado 12 artículos publicados en revistas científicas internacionales y nacionales. Para la búsqueda se han empleado la base de datos MEDLlNE y Cochrane. Discusión: Dentro de las enfermedades sistémicas que pueden afectar al periodonto, nos podemos encontrar con tres grupos: alteraciones hematológicas, alteraciones genéticas y un grupo de enfermedades que no pueden ser especificadas de otra manera.

    ABSTRACT: This study was aimed at determining periodontal treatment needs, as determined by the Community Periodontal Index of Treatment Need (CPITN), in a sample of adults from the Mixteca region of the State of Puebla, in Mexico. This was a descriptive, cross-sectional, single-centre study. Previous informed consent was obtained; 60.0 % of the sample were women whose main activity was housework (46 %), 14.0 % were farmers. Average age was 37.6 ± 13.6. Gingival and Community Periodontal Index of Treatment Need proposed by the World Health Organisation and the International Dental Federation were used; they were implemented by the same, previously-standardised researcher. Means, standard deviations and confidence intervals were calculated for dimensional variables and percentages for categorical ones. The gingival index gave 50.0 % light gingivitis, 32.0% moderate and 14.0 % severe gingivitis. The rear superior sextants commonly showed more 4 to 5 mm pockets, the front sextants calculus and the rear inferior sextants showed calculus and bleeding. 94.0 % of the patients required periodontal treatment (3.6 sextants per patient average). Periodontal treatment needs were high in this study; nine out of ten patients in the Mixteca region of the State of Puebla required periodontal treatment. Efforts must thus be guided towards improving oral health in indigenous communities.
