Effect of Supportive Periodontal Therapy on Tooth Loss in Regular and Irregular Compliant Smokers and Non-Smokers: A Cohort Retrospective Analysis with a Follow-up Up to 40 Years

Description :

Moderate scientific evidence that the independent effect of smoking is associated with the occurrence of tooth loss in individuals undergoing periodontal maintenance therapy. Only very few studies specifically reported the outcome of tooth loss and periodontal maintenance program in regular and irregular compliant smokers compared to regular and irregular compliant non-smokers. The researcher will analyze the data provided by a specialized dental clinic in the field of periodontology and will divide the subjects into four groups: Group ICS (irregular compliant smoker), Group RCS (regular compliant smoker), Group ICN (irregular compliant non-smoker), and lastly, Group RCN (regular compliant non-smoker). The subjects present in the data will be randomly selected and divided into the appropriate groups with the aid of a permutation table. The researcher will not call the patient and perform a clinical examination but rather analyze the data retrospectively. Statistical data will be compared according to annual tooth loss rates and OR of tooth loss will be calculated for each group. After statistical analysis, the researcher will formulate proper concluding remarks regarding the importance of periodontal maintenance therapy on tooth loss rates in regular and irregular compliant smokers and non-smokers.
