The objectives of this study were to evaluate the possible association of periodontal disease with (1) femoral bone mineral density (BMD), and (2) estrogen replacement therapy in a large sample of US adults (N= 11,655). The mean clinical attachment loss (CAL) per person was the main outcome variable. Based on the total BMD of the proximal femur and using the WHO diagnostic criteria, subjects were classified as having osteoporosis, osteopenia, or normal BMD. After adjusting for confounders… CONTINUE READING
