Clinical evaluation of salivary periodontal pathogen levels by real-time polymerase chain reaction in patients before dental implant treatment.

Ito T, Yasuda M, Kaneko H, Sasaki H, Kato T, Yajima Y - Clin Oral Implants Res (2013)

Bottom Line: The levels of P. gingivalis and T. forsythia were significantly higher in mop group than in np group (P < 0.05).The levels of all periodontal pathogens tested except A. actinomycetemcomitans were significantly higher in sp group than in np group (P < 0.05).The detection levels of the periodontal pathogens targeted in saliva samples were correlated with the periodontal status.

fig04: Box plot of ratio (%) of each bacterium to total copy count of five periodontal pathogens (Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans, Porphyromonas gingivalis, Tannerella forsythia, Treponema denticola, and Prevotella intermedia) in saliva sample.

Mentions: Figure3 show the average bacterial counts of the five periodontal pathogens targeted. No significant difference was detected in the salivary A. actinomycetemcomitans level among the four groups. Salivary levels of P. gingivalis and T. forsythia were significantly higher in both the mop and sp groups (P <  0.05) than in the np group. Salivary levels of T. denticola and P. intermedia were significantly higher in the sp group than in the np group (P <  0.05). Figure4 show the average proportion of each bacterium to total salivary count in each patient. The average proportion for P. gingivalis in the mop and sp groups was markedly high at 1.25% and 2.60%, respectively. In the mop group, the average proportions were 0.08% for T. forsythia, 0.13% for T. denticola, and 0.21% for P. intermedia. In terms of significant differences, these results showed a similar trend to those of previously reported bacterial copy counts of periodontal pathogens (P <  0.05).
