BACKGROUND Vitamin D is associated with a number of inflammatory diseases and plays a significant role in regulating bone metabolism. Serum calcifediol was demonstrated to be potentially associated with periodontal disease. The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether an association exists between plasma calcifediol concentrations and aggressive periodontitis (AgP) and whether plasma levels of bone-related biomarkers (osteocalcin, alkaline phosphatase, calcium, and phosphorus) regulated by… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Vitamin D-Binding Protein Levels in Plasma and Gingival Crevicular Fluid of Patients with Generalized Aggressive Periodontitis
TLDR
It is concluded that decreased GCFDBP level and increased plasma DBP level are associated with periodontitis, and these levels are higher than healthy controls.
Vitamin D deficiency in patients with aggressive periodontitis.
TLDR
The results suggest that vitamin D deficiency may be a potential risk factor for aggressive periodontitis in AgP patients, and routine screening for vitamin D status may be advisable in these subjects.
Plasma 25-hydroxyvitamin D concentrations and periodontal disease in postmenopausal women.
TLDR
Vitamin D status was inverselyassociated with gingival bleeding, an acute measure of oral health and inflammation, and inversely associated with clinical categories of chronic periodontal disease that incorporated PD, an indicator of oral inflammation.
Estimation of Vitamin D Gingival Crevicular Fluid Level In Patients With Different Periodontal Conditions.
TLDR
The results are supporting the link between 25(OH) D GCF level and the periodontal condition and might be emphasizing the correlation between theperiodontal disease and deficiency in Vit.
Analysis of plasma calprotectin and polymorphisms of S100A8 in patients with aggressive periodontitis.
TLDR
Findings indicate that aggressive periodontitis is associated with elevated levels of plasma calprotectin and that gene polymorphisms of S100A8 may influence the susceptibility and severity of aggressiveperiodontitis.
Relationship between Clinical Indicators of Periodontal Disease and Serum Level of Vitamin D
TLDR
Most of the research has found positive associations between the serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D level and periodontal health, and the clinical parameters ofperiodontal disease were reduced by vitamin D.
Assessment of local and systemic 25-hydroxy-vitamin D, RANKL, OPG, and TNF levels in patients with rheumatoid arthritis and periodontitis.
TLDR
The results suggested that GCF vitamin D levels are increased in rheumatoid arthritis patients and decrease after periodontal treatment; therefore, local Vitamin D levels might be an important indicator ofperiodontal bone loss.
Association of vitamin D receptor gene polymorphisms with chronic and aggressive periodontitis in Jordanian patients.
TLDR
An association of VDR gene polymorphisms with CP and AgP in a Jordanian population is supported, however, the pattern of association was different between the two diseases.
Vitamin D and periodontal disease
TLDR
If increased vitamin D intake can reduce alveolar bone loss, oral vitamin D supplementation could prove to be a safe, effective, low-cost adjunctive systemic/pharmacologic therapy for the prevention and treatment of periodontal disease.
Predicted vitamin D status and incidence of tooth loss and periodontitis
TLDR
A dose-dependent significant inverse association across quintiles of the predicted 25(OH)D score and incidence of tooth loss is suggestive of an association between predictors of vitamin D and lower incidence of Tooth loss and periodontitis.

Relationship between periodontitis and hepatic condition in Japanese women.
TLDR
It is suggested that hepatic steatosis is associated with periodontitis in Japanese women after multivariate adjustment for age, smoking history and oral hygiene.
Serum, saliva, and gingival crevicular fluid osteocalcin: their relation to periodontal status and bone mineral density in postmenopausal women.
TLDR
The results further support the concept that osteocalcin levels in GCF correlates with periodontal but not with osteoporosis status.
Association between serum concentrations of 25-hydroxyvitamin D3 and periodontal disease in the US population.
TLDR
Low serum 25(OH)D(3) concentrations may be associated with PD independently of BMD and given the high prevalence of PD and vitamin D deficiency, these findings may have important public health implications.
Relationship between vitamin D receptor gene polymorphism and periodontitis.
TLDR
The study suggests that Tt genotype might be a risk indicator for the susceptibility to EOP, as carriage of the allele (t) of the TaqI VDR gene may increase the risk of developing EOP.
Seasonal variation of biochemical indexes of bone turnover: results of a population-based study.
TLDR
It is concluded that seasonal variation contributes significantly to the biological variability of bone turnover and needs consideration when interpreting the results of bone marker measurements.
Vitamin D receptor polymorphism (-1056 Taq-I) interacts with smoking for the presence and progression of periodontitis.
TLDR
VDR genetic factors may interact with smoking in the pathogenesis of periodontitis and vitamin D receptor Taq-I TT polymorphism was moderately associated with both the presence and the progression ofperiodontitis in smokers, while no association was detected in non-smoking individuals.
Vitamin D status and measurements of markers of bone metabolism in patients with small intestinal resection
TLDR
It is shown that a deficient 25(OH)D concentration is associated with significantly increased markers of bone resorption and decreased BMD values, which is similar to that found in patients with small intestinal resection.
Calcium and the risk for periodontal disease.
TLDR
It is suggested that low dietary intake of calcium results in more severe periodontal disease and further studies will be needed to better define the role of calcium in periodonta disease and to determine the extent to which calcium supplementation will modulate periodontic disease and tooth loss.
The short vitamin D receptor is associated with increased risk for generalized aggressive periodontitis.
TLDR
The results demonstrate that the short VDR (27823*C/*C) protein may influence GAP susceptibility.
Association of vitamin D receptor gene polymorphisms in Chinese patients with generalized aggressive periodontitis.
TLDR
The study indicates that FokI polymorphism of vitamin D receptor gene might be associated with generalized aggressive periodontitis in Chinese patients and the carriage of F allele increases the risk of developing generalized aggressiveperiodontitis.
