The Association Between Clinical and Radiographic Periodontitis Measurements During Periodontal Maintenance
Payne JB et al. – The study aims to examine the association between clinical and radiographic periodontitis measurements during two years of periodontal maintenance. In postmenopausal osteopenic women undergoing periodontal maintenance, baseline PD was associated with subsequent ABD and ABH loss. Although no longitudinal change preceded another measurement change, changes in probing depths and relative clinical attachment levels appeared to reflect changes in the underlying alveolar bone over time.
