Abstract

Smoking is one of the risk factors of chronic periodontitis. Studies showing differences in pocket depth and gingival recession in chronic periodontitis patients between smokers and non-smokers remain rare. To identify differences in pocket depth and gingival recession between smokers and non-smokers with chronic periodontitis. A cross-sectional study was conducted using medical records of 101 smokers and 101 non-smokers who suffered from chronic periodontitis. Mann-Whitney tests showed significant differences in the mean pocket depth and mean gingival recession (p < 0.05 for both) between smokers and non-smokers. The mean pocket depth and gingival recession in smokers is greater than in non-smokers.
