active periodontal therapy


Periodontal Maintenance is not indicated for the following : • No history of Scaling and Root Planing (SRP) or surgical procedures In our search, neither short‐term studies (3–12‐month follow‐up) nor longer‐term studies (≥12 months follow‐up) appeared investigating the use of various probing measurements on the need for periodontitis re‐treatment. Your periodontist will treat one side of the mouth at a time using a combination of techniques to remove the plaque and calculus that cause gum disease. This procedure may also limit the areas requiring surgical treatment. Impact of Local Drug Delivery of Minocycline on the Subgingival Microbiota during Supportive Periodontal Therapy: A Randomized Controlled Pilot Study. Tooth loss reflects tooth extractions resulting from a clinician's subjective decision (Levin & Halperin‐Sternfeld, 2013) and could be favoured due to the current popularity of implant therapy; however, the tooth extraction is not always indicative of the lack of a tooth to survive in the long term. Material and methods: Retrospective data were collected from 273 patients [all compliers (AC)] and cross-sectional data from 39 patients after discontinuation of PM [non-compliers (NC)] for at least 7 years after APT. Today we understand that periodontitis is an inflammatory disease and that a proportion of the population is susceptible (Bartold & Van Dyke. APT is a non-surgical procedure which aims plaque and calculus deposits from the tooth and root surface. This is done so that the active periodontal infection is reduced and the overall tissue quality is improved prior to surgery. Nonsurgical Treatment. Background: Periodontitis is a bacterially-induced, chronic inflammatory disease that destroys the connective tissues and bone that support teeth. Evaluation of current extra- and intraoral peri-odontal and peri-implant softtissuesas well as dental Results: Fifty molars were extracted during active periodontal therapy (APT) and 154 molars over the average SPT period of 13.2 ± 2.8 years.

Principal findings: Traditional periodontal probing measures are considered surrogate endpoints and are not tangible to the patient. For dental and periodontal researchers who are involved in establishing clinical periodontal treatment guidelines, an important discussion issue is the use and the actual meaning of clinical attachment levels.

Surrogate endpoints, which include probing pocket depth reduction and gain in clinical attachment level, may not provide unambiguous evidence that a certain treatment yields concrete patient benefits. People living with a condition are uniquely qualified and expert to be able to contribute to improving the quality and relevance of treatment outcome research.

FI, MRT, SPT: 14 : 2013 2019 Sep;27:167-172. doi: 10.1016/j.pdpdt.2019.05.022. Future endpoints of periodontal treatment may include the absence of systemic signs of inflammation, for example C‐reactive protein levels <3 mg/L; these may suffice as endpoints to consider periodontal treatment successful for the health of the patient, and therefore, for example, tooth loss becomes an indirect or surrogate parameter. There were no short‐term studies (3–12‐month follow‐up). Active periodontal therapy has always been provided to periodontitis patients to establish conditions which allow the patient to maintain a dentition without further breakdown of the periodontium, that is (a) to prevent further episodes of periodontitis, (b) to reduce and even eliminate gingival inflammation, (c) to reduce and even eliminate deepened pockets and (d) to regain periodontal attachment of the tooth; thus ultimately to prevent tooth loss and loss of dental functions (Pihlstrom, 1992). Use the link below to share a full-text version of this article with your friends and colleagues. We focused specifically on issues and reports at the patient level, as it is the patient who may develop recurrent periodontitis and who has the need to seek re‐treatment, who may experience tooth loss during the periodontal maintenance phase and who judges his/her own oral health‐related quality of life (Hujoel, 2004; Needleman et al., 2004; Öhrn & Jönsson, 2012). How much does it cost to see a Periodontist? Patients, policymakers and insurance companies may have different perceptions of pursued endpoints of periodontal therapy than clinicians and periodontal researchers. initial or cause‐related therapy) with or without adjunctive antimicrobials and with or without surgical treatment. Scientific rationale for the study: To investigate what we know about tangible patient outcomes after active periodontal therapy and to make recommendations for practice and research. Clearly, there are unidentified variables causing data heterogeneity and affecting the risk of tooth loss, for example different treatment traditions over the last 60 years, geographical variation, dental care reimbursement systems, the popularity of implant therapy and number of remaining natural teeth. Patients were re‐examined 120 ± 12 months after active periodontal therapy. Reports have indicated that teeth may more easily be extracted than before the millennium shift, with a view to replacing teeth with implants, despite the evidence that periodontally involved but well‐maintained teeth, out survive—and are cheaper—than implants (Levin & Halperin‐Sternfeld, 2013; Schwendicke, Graetz, Stolpe, & Dorfer, 2014). Even in most severe cases of periodontal disease, non-surgical periodontal therapy most often precedes surgical therapy. The best available evidence suggests that—following active periodontal therapy—the achievement of shallow periodontal pockets (≤4 mm) that do not bleed on probing in patients with full‐mouth bleeding scores <30% confers the highest chance of stability of periodontal health and lowest risk of tooth loss.

Previously it was reviewed that there is a weak relationship between the oral health condition measured by dental professionals and oral health judged by patients (Öhrn & Jönsson, 2012), confirming that perceived oral health by dental patients is not captured in the traditional clinical examinations (Aslund, Pjetursson, & Lang, 2008; Buhlin, Gustafsson, Andersson, Hakansson, & Klinge, 2002). How are for an individual patient after active periodontal therapy (a) stability of clinical attachment level, (b) tooth survival, (c) need for re‐treatment or (d) oral health‐related quality of life, related to commonly and easily applied periodontal probing measures, that is generalized pocket closure (probing depths ≤4 mm), a certain patient level of residual pockets (e.g., residual probing depths ≥5 mm), a given level of accumulated changes in probing depth and in clinical attachment level, and a patient‐based value for number or proportion of sites showing bleeding on probing. Nevertheless, Matuliene and co‐workers identified that after active periodontal therapy, residual pockets ≥6 mm and full‐mouth bleeding scores of ≥30%, represented a risk for tooth loss for the patient (Matuliene et al., 2008). In essence, although the literature is abundant on the plain presentation of probing measures in numerous clinical studies on the site level, tooth level and type of tooth with or without severe furcation problems, surprisingly, virtually absent are reports that use these commonly applied periodontal probing measures (pockets ≤4 mm, residual probing depth, change in probing depth, change in clinical attachment level or bleeding on probing) after completion of the active periodontal treatment, subsequently to be used as new baseline measures for the study of the four patient endpoints considered in this review. Shallow residual periodontal pockets are considered to be unfavourable ecological niches for a dysbiotic biofilm. The assessment of clinical attachment level changes over time in periodontal sites and averaged for per patient, having received no or any kind of therapy, the relation with histological attachment levels and the appreciation of this measurement for the evaluation of periodontal therapies at the site‐ and/or patient level (tangible patient outcomes) have been critically addressed (Ryan, 2005). Book an Online Appointment  or Contact Us, 132 Kedron Brook Road Indeed, those residual pockets after active periodontal therapy have been associated to the risk of periodontitis recurrence and to the need of periodontal surgery , increasing the cost of periodontal treatment . In our search, neither short‐term studies (3–12‐month follow‐up) nor longer‐term studies (≥12 months follow‐up) appeared investigating the use of various probing measurements on the oral health‐related or general quality of life. Finally, other factors such as oral hygiene and smoking have been suggested to influence PDT effectiveness [9,17,29]. A healthy and well‐functioning dentition is as much part of a healthy body as any other vital organ. Position paper on endpoints of active periodontal therapy for designing treatment guidelines. Nevertheless, few experimental (as opposed to observational) periodontal treatment studies have investigated true endpoints such as tooth retention, perhaps because of the duration of follow‐up required to make this outcome meaningful to measure. Impact of tooth-related factors on photodynamic therapy effectiveness during active periodontal therapy: A 6-months split-mouth randomized clinical trial. Therefore, it is a challenge to design clinical studies on active periodontal therapy keeping above facts in mind, since the recruitment of study subjects may yield a large majority of patients with chronically inflamed, but not actively progressing periodontal lesions.

True disease activity is most likely sporadic and highly dependent on the variation in the current “fitness” of the immune system-2-2 The term “immune fitness” is used to describe the current immune responsiveness of a subject, for example the resilience, resistance, tolerance, adaptation and resolution capacities to any challenge, and this is also dependent on genetic, epigenetic factors and age of the patient (Barnig et al., 2019; Botticelli et al., 2017; Ebersole et al., 2018; Ebersole et al., 2016; Larsson, 2017; Loos & Van Dyke, 2020; Te Velde et al., 2016). Taking the multicausality model for the emergence and disease progression of periodontitis one step further to predict the stability of the periodontal condition after therapy, it becomes clear that the factors we discuss in this paper are not simply and unidirectionally determined by, for example, residual pockets depths or some mm's change in clinical attachment level. as patients grow older the immune senescence (“inflammaging”) may play a role; the genetic background of the patients including epigenetic changes accrued in a lifetime, which in part determine and change the host resistance blueprint; the effect of systemic diseases and medications, such as diabetes and high blood pressure medications or immune‐suppressive drugs that effect severely immune responses; lifestyle factors such as smoking and dietary habits or availability of proper micronutrients; also, whilst we normally score dental plaque in the clinic as present or absent, the effect of the quantity and quality may change over time: where the patient can live in symbiosis with a given microbiota in the subgingival region in a certain period of his/her life, for example over a period of 10 years being in maintenance, this may change due to changes in the immune responses as outlined above. The expert and highly experienced periodontal research community will need to work to develop studies that can more closely guide such treatment choices. Defining a treatment plan for the periodontal patient is a process that requires the assessment, preventive, therapeutic, and evaluative skills of the dental hygienist and the dentist.The treatment plan is the blueprint for management of the dental case and is an essential aspect of successful therapy… Periodontal therapy reduces the severity of active rheumatoid arthritis in patients treated with or without tumor necrosis factor inhibitors. In contrast, the parameter bleeding on probing in the original study (Claffey & Egelberg, 1995) did not show a significant association with stability of clinical attachment level (Renvert & Persson, 2002). APT is an abbreviation for Active Periodontal Therapy. The need for periodontal maintenance treatment after active therapy due to the potential for disease recurrence. AgP, CAL: 12 : 2014: Risk factors associated with the longevity of multi-rooted teeth. Special Issue: Treatment of Stage I‐III Periodontitis. From our review, there are only limited data to guide treatment options based either on clinical outcomes or PROs. 1. The perceived solution by both the dentist and the patients for loss of a tooth has sparked a worldwide increase in tooth extractions (Levin & Halperin‐Sternfeld, 2013). However, these important studies investigated prognostic factors of initial periodontal status (i.e., at baseline, prior to treatment) and this is different from the focus of the current review which was to determine the effect of treatment outcomes on future tooth loss. AgP, CAL: 13 : 2014: Risk factors associated with the longevity of multi-rooted teeth. Loss of clinical attachment level was defined as ≥1.5 mm compared to 3‐month post‐treatment data by linear regression analysis or as ≥2 mm between baseline and study endpoint measurement. Most patients at this point will require Active Periodontal Therapy and/or a referral to a gum specialist. These studies were therefore unable to offer additional data to this position paper. Hence, the concepts of precision medicine are likely to influence periodontal therapy choices. Active periodontal treatment aims to reduce the inflammatory response, primarily through eradication of bacterial deposits. Notably, if one equates “progression of periodontitis” with the need for re‐treatment, again from the Matuliene papers et al., indicative observations can be retrieved. Active Periodontal Therapy The early warning signs of every disease occur at a microscopic level. If active disease is detected, re-treatment is undertaken during the maintenance therapy over a series of appointments, in effect, returning the patient to a phase of active periodontal treatment. However, it is unclear what constitutes tangible treatment outcomes for the patients. In that review, only publications on chronic or adult forms of periodontitis were eligible for inclusion, excluding aggressive periodontitis. Therefore, when a patient has experienced periodontal disease in the past, we must be ever-vigilant to monitor for signs of active disease long after the disease has been brought under control through good periodontal therapy. initial or cause‐related therapy) with or without adjunctive antimicrobials and with or without surgical treatment. 2. APT is a non-surgical procedure which aims plaque and calculus deposits from the tooth and root surface. Today we understand better that from the aspect of creating unfavourable ecological niches for the pathogenic microbiota, the goals of periodontal therapy and subsequent maintenance should be to reduce or eliminate residual probing depths whilst keeping the resistance and resilience of the patient at a high level. There are a large number of surrogate endpoints used in periodontal treatment studies, and these have been tabulated (Table 2) based on a survey of endpoint characteristics in periodontal trials (Hujoel & DeRouen, 1995). initial or cause‐related therapy) with or without adjunctive antimicrobials and with or without surgical treatment. A record of the patient’s consent to the proposed therapy should be maintained. Periodontal pathogens and associated factors in aggressive periodontitis: results 5-17 years after active periodontal therapy. Material and methods: Eighty-four patients with AgP were re-evaluated after a mean period of 10.5 years of supportive periodontal therapy (SPT). The authors have no conflicts of interest. E: A further consideration is that randomized controlled trials (RCTs) on periodontal treatment do not necessarily represent the standard of care in clinical dental practice. 4. As such, for clinicians and dental researchers who will be engaged in the development of clinical guidelines for periodontal therapy, the following can be recommended: In addition to the observations above we propose the following:,, I have read and accept the Wiley Online Library Terms and Conditions of Use, Measuring oral health‐related quality‐of‐life using OHQoL‐GE in periodontal patients presenting at the University of Berne, Switzerland, A multilevel analysis of factors affecting pocket probing depth in patients responding differently to periodontal treatment, Activation of resolution pathways to prevent and fight chronic inflammation: Lessons from asthma and inflammatory bowel disease, An appraisal of the role of specific bacteria in the initial pathogenesis of periodontitis, Cross‐talk between microbiota and immune fitness to steer and control response to anti PD‐1/PDL‐1 treatment, Validity and limitations of self‐reported periodontal health, Predictors of tooth loss during long‐term periodontal maintenance: A systematic review of observational studies, Interaction of lifestyle, behaviour or systemic diseases with dental caries and periodontal diseases: Consensus report of group 2 of the joint EFP/ORCA workshop on the boundaries between caries and periodontal diseases, Prediction and diagnosis of attachment loss by enhanced chemiluminescent assay of crevicular fluid alkaline phosphatase levels, The effect of the loss of teeth on diet and nutrition, Clinical indicators of probing attachment loss following initial periodontal treatment in advanced periodontitis patients, Issues of individual study analysis and synthesis of studies specific to evaluation of studies of periodontitis, Periodontal disease and pregnancy outcomes: Overview of systematic reviews, The link between periodontal disease and cardiovascular disease is probably inflammation, Searching deep and wide: Advances in the molecular understanding of dental caries and periodontal disease, Age and periodontal health‐immunological view, Aging, inflammation, immunity and periodontal disease, Prognostic model for tooth survival in patients treated for periodontitis, The application of multilevel modelling to periodontal research data, Re: A review of longitudinal studies that compared periodontal therapies, Endpoints in periodontal trials: The need for an evidence‐based research approach, A survey of endpoint characteristics in periodontal clinical trials published 1988–1992, and implications for future studies, The informativeness of attachment loss on tooth mortality, The oral microbiome – An update for oral healthcare professionals, Core outcomes in periodontal trials: Study protocol for core outcome set development, Absence of bleeding on probing. These symptoms may be a sign of gum disease, which can often be treated with active periodontal therapy (APT). We urgently need multilevel statistics and multifactorial algorithms including all, and more, host, microbial and local oral and dental parameters, to predict future re‐emergence of periodontitis and to estimate local or generalized further breakdown of periodontal tissues (Axtelius, Soderfeldt, & Attstrom, 1999; Gilthorpe, Griffiths, Maddick, & Zamzuri, 2000; Lopez, Frydenberg, & Baelum, 2009; Lundgren, Asklow, Thorstensson, & Harefeldt, 2001; Tu et al., 2004a, 2004b). Data were presented at the patient rather than the site level. This will help to create more homogeneity amongst clinical trials, systematic reviews and clinical guidelines (Lamont et al., 2017). Therefore, we supplemented the electronic search with studies retrieved from reference lists. The current review of treatment endpoint studies showed, perhaps not unexpectedly, that the body of evidence available for periodontal therapy is largely based on limited studies of conventional professional surrogate outcomes. The association of risk factors with loss of MRT was analysed with multilevel logistic regression. Another true outcome, quality of life, has been included although the number of trials reporting this measure is low and it is not clear how responsive such tools are to assess treatment response as compared to their original application, which was in cross‐sectional epidemiological studies. There is lack of evidence that periodontal probing measures after completion of active periodontal treatment are tangible to the patient. Aim. When active periodontal disease is present, a special deep cleaning, called “scaling and root planing,” will be presented as a part of your treatment … Long-term outcomes after active and supportive periodontal therapy. A total of 172 subjects were examined before (T0) and after active periodontal therapy (APT)(T1) and following a mean of 11.5 ± 5.2 (SD) years of SPT (T2). Request PDF | Clinical Audit of Minimally Invasive Nonsurgical Techniques in Active Periodontal Therapy | Aims: Periodontitis is one of the most widespread diseases worldwide. Thus, changes in clinical attachment level measurements are most frequently used as clinical outcomes in clinical trials (Ryan, 2005), and however, in contrast to (university‐based) clinical studies, clinical attachment levels are not routinely measured in dental and periodontal practices, and therefore, the value of this parameter needs serious consideration whilst engaged in developing clinical guidelines.
