Acute-phase Response & Periodontal Treatment in Obese Patients


Brief description of study

The aim of this study is to compare quadrant scaling and root planing (Q-SRP) versus full-mouth treatment (FM-SRP) in terms of acute-phase responses following no surgical periodontal treatment in obese patients affected by periodontitis.

Detailed Study Description

Periodontal treatment, consisting in both supra- and sub-gingival mechanical instrumentation of the root surface (scaling and root planing), will be performed by a single periodontist on obese patients with periodontitis.

The aim of this study is to compare quadrant scaling and root planing (Q-SRP) versus full-mouth treatment (FM-SRP) in terms of acute-phase responses following non surgical periodontal treatment.

Treatment will be provided using both hand and ultrasonic instrumentation with ne tips.

FM-SRP patients will received treatment within 24 h. Q-SRP patients will received four quadrants sessions of periodontal treatment with an interval of 1 week between sessions.

Vital, endothelial function and blood inflammatory parameters will be evaluated at baseline, 24 hours after the first treatment and after 3 months. Periodontal parameters will be evaluated at baseline and after 3 months.
