Brief Summary:


To evaluate effect of non- surgical periodontal therapy on liver function in systemically healthy chronic periodontitis (CP) subjects.

Materials and methods:

The study is non surgical interventional trial, includes 50 CP subjects in the age group of 35- 60 years selected from the OPD (Out Patient Department) of department of periodontology Tatyasaheb Kore Dental College and Research center (TKDC and RC), Kolhapur. CP subjects were equally divided into test group and control group. Liver function test- aspartate aminotransferase (AST), alanine aminotransferase (ALT) were checked at baseline and at 1 month after treatment. Clinical examination includes plaque index, gingival index, sulcus bleeding index, probing depth, clinical attachment loss.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Active Comparator: Scaling and Root Planing( SRP)
This was an interventional study in which scaling and root planing was done in systemically healthy patients with chronic periodontitis
Procedure: Scaling and root planing
scaling and root planing as an intervention was done in patients of the test group

No Intervention: Control Group
Scaling and root planing was not done , that is no intervention is carried out in the patients of this group.
