Brief Summary:
Vitamin D has become important for periodontal disease due to play a role in autoimmunity, bone mineral metabolism and inflammation. Our aim was to investigate the relation between serum 25-hydroxy vitamin D levels, clinical periodontal parameters and blood serum biomarkers. The subjects were evaluated in 2 groups as chronic periodontitis (n= 30) and periodontally healthy subjects (n= 30). Periodontal parameters and fasting venous blood samples were taken from the subjects to assess each patient's periodontal status and for biochemical analyses (25-hydroxy vitamin D (25-OH vit D), osteoprotegerin (OPG), receptor activator of nuclear kappa B ligand (RANKL), C-telopeptide (CTx), tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α)).

Study Population

Sixty patients (35 girls) who were aged between 25-45 years (30.8 (mean) ± 4.9 (standard deviation) and presented to our faculty for periodontal and other dental problems, participated in the study.

Subjects were divided in to 2 groups each containing 30 patients:

  • Group I - periodontal healthy
  • Group II - untreated chronic periodontitis (radiographic evidence of bone loss and clinical attachment loss in excess of 5 mm in more than six teeth)
  • Inclusion Criteria:

    • never-smokers
    • no history of systemic disease
    • no patients had been under periodontal therapy and medicine for at least 6 months before the study
    • no pregnancy or lactation
    • no alcohol or antioxidant vitamin consumption.
  • Exclusion Criteria:

    • -
