Abstract

Recent studies have pointed the importance of Entamoeba gingivalis (E .gingivalis) as an active protozoa in periodontal pathology , its presence associated withthe presence of pathological pockets , thus a clinical survey of E, gingivalis wasconducted in patients with chronic periodontitis . A total of 240 specimens were takenHom 48 patients (20 male and 28 female) , their age ranged from 38 up to 60 years old .A direct smearing technique of deepest periodontal pocket (> 4mm) with a sterileuniversal curettes to pickup the plaque material and to be placed in phosphate — buffered `saline pl-{7.4, then stained with Heidenhair hematoxilyne modified technique, studiedunder light microscope , the results shown 33.3% of our patients were positive .The occurrence of E. gingivalis appeared positively correlated with the pocketdepth, 13.93% of 4-6mm pockets depth was positive, while in pockets of 7-8mm depththe percentage rises up to 38% .

Abstract

The non surgical periotherepy are based on the baeteriologic back ground ofperiodontal diseases. More than 46 different verulant species were composing thebacterial flora. Tetracyclin , Doxycyline , Minocyline were used systemically and / ortopicaly in association with conventional scaling and root planning , as wellchlorhixidine and wide variety of antiseptics were used . Generalized and localizedaggressive periodontitis being a complex disease showing a specific entity and acomplex bacterial flora, a curative non surgical remedy not yet well realized. The,polyvinyl pynolidone (PVP) a highly effective wide broad spectrum bactericidalfungycidal and virocidal antiseptic used in low concentration (3%) as an intrapocketirrigation solution accompanied with conventional ultrasound scaling and rootplanning . Eight patients having aggressive were involved in this study, 12 therapeuticsessions were performed during 6 months. Once a week , in the first month , twice amonth in the next 3 months , then once a month in the later 2 months . The resultshowed a significant improvement of the clinical parameters, gingival bleeding indexGBI), clinical pocket depth (CPD) , and clinical tooth mobility (CTM) , with(. radiologic evidences of bone formationThe result suggests that PVP could be the promising effective, save clinically. applicable , easy to use , and cheap remedy of complex periodontal diseases

Abstract

Background: Little information is available regarding the prevalence and distribution of periodontal abscesses. The aim of this cross-sectional study is to provide more information about the prevalence and distribution of periodontal abscesses and its relation to other periodontal variables in order to help in the characterizing of the periodontal abscesses in relation to periodontitis.Materials and method: 105 periodontally affected patients were examined 57 male and 48 female the mean age was 43 yrs. Seventeen subjects were diagnosed with periodontal abscesses (10 male and 7 female ) their mean age was 59 yrs. The periodontal abscesses were studied by the assessment of clinical variables including both subjective (pain, redness, swelling and edema) and objective (bleeding on probing, pocket depth and plaque index).Results: It was clear that the prevalence of periodontal abscesses increase with age in both sexes but it was higher in male (10 patients) than female (7 patients) all periodontal abscesses were associated with deep periodontal pocket where the mean pocket depth was (10.7 mm ) in male and (9.7 mm ) in female, also all periodontal abscesses presented with bleeding on probing, most of abscesses scored as "severe" acute stage 90% in male and 85.72 % in female, all male patients affected with periodontal abscesses were smokers, examined patients were presented with abundant amount of plaque accumulation reflect the negligence in oral hygiene care. The mostly affected teeth were anterior teeth then premolar and molar teeth equally.Conclusion: the periodontal abscesses have clear characteristics and they are usually associated with sever periodontal destruction including deep pocket and bleeding on probing also they are correlated with smoking habit and plaque accumulation, their prevalence increase with age and it is higher in male than female
