  • What Is The Multifactorial Risk Factors Of Periodontitis?

    Various risk factors influence the progression of periodontitis and contribute towards the ability of bacteria to invade periodontal tissue. Consequently, the inflammatory process caused by bacterial infection, causes soft tissue destruction and bone loss (Berezow & Darveau, 2011). Stress and anxiety cause an increased level of adrenocorticotropic hormones, such as cortisol in blood and saliva. Cortisol has an immunosuppressive effect on the host, strengthening the ability for pathogenic bacteria to manifest in the gingival sulcus (Refulio, Rocafuerte, de la Rosa, Mendoza, & Chambrone, 2013). This may indicate that stress and anxiety are part of the spectrum of multifactorial risk factors for periodontitis. In order to ascertain the effect of psychosocial status in adults suffering from this debilitating disease, it is imperative to identify variables such as demographic status and life experiences, to understand the initial cause of stress and…

  • Periodontal Disease Case Study

    proteome analysis is used to understand the molecular mechanism of invasion, survival and pathogenesis. F.alocis ATCC 35896 and D-62D strain have variation in their protein profile. F.alocis genome has a total of 15 different proteases. These proteases may be membrane bound or extracellular. Among membrane bound proteases CaaX proteases are present in both the strains. In S.gordonii these proteases are known to play a role in protein transportion and protection of bacteria from bacteriocins.…

  • Environmental Effects Of Periodontitis

    Chronic periodontitis is a complex disease caused by microorganism. recent studies showed the effect of periodontal diseases on the systemic health conditions like cardiovascular disease (CVD). C reactive protein (CRP) is an acute phase reactant which used as marker for monitoring of periodontal diseases and systemic health problems. Body mass index (BMI) on the other hand has a relationship with the level of CRP and severity of periodontal diseases as well as systemic health. 1.1. INTRODUCTION …

  • Risk Factors For Periodontal Disease

    have the highest occurrence of periodontitis; 70% of Americans over age 65 have some degree of gum disease. Lack of good oral hygiene, such as not brushing and flossing on a regular basis encourages bacteria buildup and plaque formation (Ouyang 27). “Smoking is one of the most significant risk factors associated with the development of periodontal disease and the disease increase with the number of cigarettes per day” (Kachlany 44). Stress makes it harder for the body to fight off infection and…

  • Den Evaginatus Case Study

    Abstract: Dens evaginatus is an uncommon developmental anomaly of human dentition characterized by the presence of tubercle on the occlusal surface of mandibular premolars and lingual surface of anterior teeth. Due to occlusal trauma this tubercle tends to fracture thus exposing the pathway to the pulp chamber of teeth. This case report is about the presentation of dens evaginatus in mandibular premolars bilaterally, among them tooth 44 was associated with chronic apical periodontitis. Fractured…

  • Periodontal Disease Vs Gum Disease

    used as a synonym for periodontitis, specifically chronic periodontitis. "It is now considered an autoimmune disease and can be a precursor to extreme health problems". Moreover, more worrying is the fact that the relation between periodontal disease and other maladies are often not detected or given adequate attention. However, the important issue is that periodontal disease is the major cause of tooth loss in adults. "There is a significant likelihood that over 90% of the population may be…

  • Case Study Of Periodontal Disease

    Systemic conditions including diseases such as cardiovascular disease (CVD) are associated with this form of periodontitis. Many people do not know that if they have a systemic condition and have periodontal disease the systemic condition can worsen if the periodontal disease is not addressed. According to Frieda Picketts’ 2012 article, State of evidence: Chronic periodontal disease and stroke in the Canadian Journal of Dental Hygiene: Periodontal therapy can be provided safely for most…
