Lecture Synopsis

1. The changes in periodontal microbiota in patients with hypothyroidism
Hypothyroidism is one of the most common endocrine disorders, influencing the metabolism of female sex hormones, oestradiol and progesterone. Augmented levels of these hormones appear to influence the growth of ‘black-pigmented Bacteroides’, inclusive of Porphyromonas, Bacteroides and Prevotella species. It is possible therefore that hypothyroidism may be a systemic illness modulating periodontitis in female patients.

2. Supportive periodontal therapy
Nonsurgical and surgical treatment of periodontal disease have been proven effective in arresting destruction of the periodontium. However, the long term success of periodontal treatment is dependent upon the effectiveness of the maintenance care program
