Conventional Mechanical Periodontal Therapy - A Pioneering and Nontoxic Experimental Model for the Study of Acute Human Inflammatory Response*
In the past decade, the association of periodontal diseases with the development of systemic diseases has received increasing attention. A variety of recent hypothesis driven investigations have compiled various results showing that periodontal infection and subsequent direct oral-haematogenous spread of bacteria arc implicated in the development of inflammation and various systemic diseases. Chronic periodontitis causes a low-grade systemic inflammatory response; its standard treatment, however, induces an acute inflammatory response. T he aim of this study was to describe the systemic inflammatory reactions to an intensive periodontal treatment regimen.
