Background: Diseases of tissues surrounding and supporting the teeth are known as periodontal diseases. The present study was conducted to assess chronic periodontitis in teachers. Materials & Methods: The present study was conducted in 60 teachers of Guru VashisthaVidyayan, Hajipur. The presence of clinical attachment loss (CAL), periodontal probing depth (PPD) and bleeding on probing (BOP) was measured at baseline, after 3 months and 6 months. Results: Mean BOP score was 2.4±1.2 and 2.3±1.0 in males and females at baseline, 2.0 ±1 and 2.0±1 after 3 months and 1.2±0.4 and 1±0.6 after 6 months in males and females respectively. Mean± SD CAL was 6 mm in males and 5 mm in females II at baseline, 4 mm and 3 mm at 3 months and 1.2 mm and 1.1 mm at 6 months in males and females respectively. PPD was 4 mm at baseline in both genders, 2 mm and 3 mm at 3 months and 1.4 mm and 1.2 mm at 6 months in both subjects respectively. Conclusion: The CAL, PPD and BOP was almost at same level in males and females teachers. Good oral hygeine is required to prevent bone loss.
Key words: Bleeding on probing, Periodontitis, Periodontal probing depth.
