Bleeding on probing (BOP) is the most significant clinical parameter for the assessment of periodontal inflammation. The aim of this prospective longitudinal trial was to study the association between allelic variants of the IL-1 gene complex and gingival inflammation. Three hundred and twenty-three randomly selected periodontal maintenance patients (64.4… CONTINUE READING
