Scaling and root planning effects on alveolar bone density and amount of Porphyromonas gingivalis and Treponema denticola

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review

Abstract

Porphyromonas gingivalis (Pg) and Treponema denticola (Td) are the main etiology of alveolar bone loss. The elimination of these bacteria with scaling and root planing can promote bone healing and initiate an increase in radiographic bone density. The aim of this research to analyze radiographic bone density and the amount of Pg and Td before and after scaling and root planing. A total of 40 subjects gave informed consent, and underwent clinical examination, radiographic examination for bone density, and laboratory examination for the load of Pg and Td using RT-PCR. The results showed there is differences between radiographic bone density and the amount of Pg and Td before and after scaling and root planing, indicating an inverse association between the amount of Pg and Td and the bone radiographic density. In conclusions, Scaling and root planing decrease the amount of Pg and Td and increase the radiographic bone density.
