Soluble CD163 as a biomarker of periodontal disease – A biochemical study using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay

Conclusion: Within the limitations of the present study, it can be concluded that sCD163 levels can be used as a diagnostic marker of disease as its levels are remarkably increased in GCFs of patients having periodontitis.

In conclusion, the prevalence of dental caries and periodontal disease among pregnant women in this study were relatively high. The presence of untreated dental caries, moderate and severe gingivitis, and periodontal pockets were significantly associated with their corresponding oral symptoms.

Background: Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) including hypertension, are characterized by underlying systemic inflammation. Periodontitis, which can impact the systemic inflammatory burden has recently been linked to high blood pressure (BP). However, the relationship of gingival bleeding, as an easily accessible marker of periodontal disorder, with hypertension, remains unclear. Methods: Survey-based propensity score matching (PSM) incorporating major confounders shared between hypertension and periodontal diseases was applied to cross-sectional NHANES III data from 5396 adults at least 30 years old who underwent BP mea...

Objective: Evaluate the association between periodontal disease, atherosclerosis, and carotid artery intima-media thickness. Study design: Cross-sectional observational study, which was performed through patient anamnesis and periodontal evaluation through plaque index, bleeding index, probing depth, and gingival recession. Thickness of carotid artery intima-media (cIMT) was obtained by ultrasonography. Results: The sample consisted of 92 patients aged 19 to 82 years. The prevalence of periodontal disease index was 74.2%, and the prevalence of gingivitis was 11.8%.

Desquamative gingivitis is a generic condition with gingival scaling that can be a manifestation of autoimmune diseases such as lichen planus, pemphigus, and pemphigoid, etc. Diagnosis is based on biopsy of the lesions, hematoxylin and eosin staining (HE), and direct immunofluorescence, and the treatment of choice is the use of corticosteroids. A 59-year-old white female presented with areas of intense erythema and extensive ulcerations spread throughout the gingivae on both arches and on the hard palate, which stopped her from adequately feeding due to pain and bleeding.

Vulvovaginal gingival syndrome is defined as a type of lichen planus involving the oral cavity causing desquamative gingivitis with the presence of erythema, pain, halitosis, and bleeding and provoking intensive erythema, pain, loss of the labia minora, vaginal stenosis, and sexual activity impairment due to inflammation and atrophy. A 45-year-old Caucasian woman visited the oral medicine clinic complaining gingival bleeding, lip sores, and severe pain. The patient reported a case of genital candidiasis for more than 10 years without success, with no other diseases reported.

Conclusions: With the limitations of this study, in accordance with the statistical results obtained, diode laser therapy does not allow a faster resolution of gingival edema compared to traditional therapy; the two treatment techniques for plaque-induced gingivitis, therefore, have the same efficacy.

Conclusions: The use of a novel floss holder, NFH, was shown to improve the behavioral and psychological determinants of periodontal health four months after introduction of the device. However the clinical measures of BOMP only improved significantly when used in conjunction with text messages (NFH+TM). The use of a consciousness awareness technique,TMs, in combination with a novel device, may help patients to reach therapeutic objectives and contribute to the management of periodontal pathologies such as gingivitis.

CONCLUSION: The rs1800795 in IL-6 gene was associated with gingivitis. The rs1143627 and rs1143629 in IL-1β were associated with dental caries and gingivitis. PMID: 32643487 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
