Aim: The objective of this study was to use clinical parameters, digital subtraction analysis, and computer intensity measurement to evaluate the effect of calcium and vitamin D supplementation in adult periodontitis patients with vertical bony defect after initial therapy. Materials and methods: A total of 31 systemically healthy patients with moderate to severe chronic periodontitis and normal serum calcium level were included. The most obvious proximal vertical bony defect was selected in… Expand


One-year effects of vitamin D and calcium supplementation on chronic periodontitis.
The findings support the possibility that vitamin D may positively impact periodontal health and confirm the need for randomized clinical trials on the effects of vitamin D on periodontitis. Expand

Improved knowledge of bacterium-host interactions and of the processes leading to tissue destruction will help to identify targets for host modulation to reduce periodontitis in selected situations. Expand
Calcium nutrition and bone health in the elderly.
Calcium nutrition is considerably more important in the genesis of osteoporosis than has been commonly thought for the past 35 yr, and the RDA for adults should surely not be lowered below its current level (800 mg), but that it ought to be raised. Expand
Vitamin D: can an upper limit be defined?
Despite efforts to better understand the upper limits of daily vitamin D intake, a concentration of 100 IU (2.5 g) of vitamin D per 100 kcal ingested, as is currently recommended by the Committee on Nutrition of the American Academy of Pediatrics, seems entirely appropriate. Expand
