Abstract:
Rising prevalence of periodontal diseases in patients with chronic hepatitis C requires in-depth study of periodontal condition for further optimization of health care regimen. Objective of our study was to conduct index estimation of periodontal tissues and oral hygiene of patients with chronic hepatitis C. To determine the periodontal condition dental examination of 122 patients with chronic hepatitis C in their history and 94 people without concomitant pathologies was conducted. All patients underwent a complete clinical examination and index estimation of periodontal tissues using PMA index modified by C. Parma, papillary bleeding index and periodontal index. To assess oral hygiene state Fedorov-Volodkina oral hygiene index has been used. High prevalence of periodontal diseases in patients with chronic hepatitis C (91.80±2.48%) has been determined. Assessment of severity of inflammation of periodontal tissues by PMA, PBI and PI indices revealed statistically significantly higher values in patients with chronic hepatitis C compared with values of patients without viral liver disease. Research of periodontal indices enabled to examine the condition of periodontal tissues of patients in the settings of HCV-infection. Due to abnormal liver function in chronic hepatitis C and poor oral hygiene the severity and prevalence of periodontal diseases increases.
