PURPOSE To investigate prevalence and severity of gingivitis in representative American adults. METHODS Subjects (1,000) in Loma Linda, California; Seattle, Washington; and Boston, Massachusetts were examined for Löe-Silness Gingivitis Index (GI). Mann-Whitney rank sum test was used to determine significances in the GI between genders. The data among study sites and races were compared using the Kruskal-Wallis one-way ANOVA on ranks. The correlation of the GI and age was examined by the… Expand

Figures, Tables, and Topics from this paper

Prevalence of Gingivitis in a Group of 35- to 70-Year-Olds Residing in Puerto Rico.
TLDR
The prevalence of gingivitis was higher in Puerto Rico than in the US, and men had significantly higher GI, compared to women. Expand
Occurrence and predictors of gingivitis and supragingival calculus in a population of Brazilian adults.
TLDR
It can be concluded that the occurrence of gingivitis and calculus was high in this Brazilian population, and it was associated with age, skin color, education, self-reported proximal cleaning, smoking, dental care, and tooth loss. Expand
Prevalence of Plaque-Induced Gingivitis in a Sample of the Adult Egyptian Population
TLDR
It is demonstrated that biofilm build-up is stoutly accompanied with elevated incidence of modest to rigorous gingivitis amid adult Egyptian individuals. Expand
Prevalence and severity of plaque-induced gingivitis in a Saudi adult population
TLDR
The results of this study show that plaque accumulation is strongly associated with high prevalence of moderate to severe gingivitis among Saudi subjects. Expand
The Prevalence of Oral Protozoa Trichomona Stenax in some Patients with Gingivitis
TLDR
The study confirmed the existence of a relationship between parasite infection and gingivitis disease where the higher prevalence of T.tenax was found in gingvitis patients compared with healthy controls. Expand
Prevalence of Gingivitis AmongThe Patients Visiting Dental OPD of Dhulikhel Hospital
TLDR
Although the results of this study demonstrate higher prevalence of gingivitis in Nepalese adult, a larger study with greater sample size is required to elucidate this finding. Expand
Impact of smoking on gingival inflammation in representative samples of three South American cities.
TLDR
Investigating the impact of smoking on gingival inflammation in a representative sample of 1,650 adults from Santiago, Porto Alegre, and Tucumán found that older age, diabetes, and visible plaque emerged as risk indicators of gingivitis. Expand
Reduced systemic inflammatory mediators after treatment of chronic gingivitis.
TLDR
Treatment of severe chronic gingivitis reduces the levels of CRP and TNF-alpha in GCF of otherwise systemically healthy individuals, which could have an impact on preventing or controlling future or existing systemic disease conditions. Expand
Prevalence and Severity of Plaque-Induced Gingivitis in Three Latin American Cities: Mexico City-Mexico, Great Metropolitan Area-Costa Rica and Bogota-Colombia
Plaque-induced gingivitis is the most common form of periodontal disease and can affect 100% of the population. Gingivitis prevalence in Latin American population is not well documented, thereforeExpand
Prevalence, severity, and risk indicators of gingival inflammation in a multi-center study on South American adults: a cross sectional study
TLDR
This study shows a high prevalence and severity of gingival inflammation, being the first one performed in adult populations in three cities of South America, and identifies the main risk indicators for GI as adults with higher mean of Calculus Index. Expand

Epidemiology of gingivitis.
  • J. Stamm
  • Medicine

TLDR
By focusing on the most apparent and robust epidemiological relationships, an instructive overview of the epidemiology of gingivitis can be gained and when adjusted for cohort effects, gingival disease appears to be on the decline. Expand
A review of the effects of stannous fluoride on gingivitis.
TLDR
The use of SnF(2) dentifrices results in gingivitis and plaque reduction when compared with a conventional dentifrice and the precise magnitude of this effect was difficult to assess because of a high level of heterogeneity in study outcomes. Expand
A controlled 6-month clinical trial to study the effects of a stannous fluoride dentifrice on gingivitis.
TLDR
Twice daily use of the SnF(2)/SHMP dentifrice over 6 months provided statistically significant anti-plaque and anti-gingivitis benefits relative to a negative control. Expand
The efficacy of an essential oil antiseptic mouthrinse vs. dental floss in controlling interproximal gingivitis: a comparative study.
TLDR
Rinsing twice daily with an essential oil-containing mouthrinse was at least as good as flossing daily in reducing interproximal plaque and gingivitis in patients with gingival inflammation. Expand
A 6-month clinical study assessing the safety and efficacy of two cetylpyridinium chloride mouthrinses.
TLDR
This study clearly demonstrates that CPC mouthrinses formulated to deliver therapeutic benefits when used twice daily can significantly prevent the development of gingivitis, gingival bleeding, and plaque over a 6-month period. Expand
[Efficacy of a triclosan/copolymer dentifrice in the control of plaque and gingivitis: a six-month study in China].
TLDR
It was concluded that the twice-daily use of the triclosan/copolymer containing dentifrice resulted in a significant reduction in plaque formation and a significant improvement in gingival health. Expand

TLDR
The studies in this systematic review provide strong evidence of the antiplaque, antigingivitis effects of multiple agents and support the use of these agents as part of a typical oral hygiene regimen. Expand
Antiplaque/antigingivitis efficacy and safety of a cetylpyridinium chloride/zinc gluconate mucoadhesive gel. Results of a 6-month clinical trial.
TLDR
Clinical findings at 3 and 6 months showed statistically significant improvements in two of the three major indices of gingival health in the CPC/ZG group compared with the control group, which was supported by results of microbial analyses of plaque samples. Expand
A 6-month clinical trial to study the effects of a cetylpyridinium chloride mouthrinse on gingivitis and plaque.
TLDR
This study demonstrates that the Crest Pro-Health 0.07% CPC mouthrinse provided significant antiplaque and antigingivitis benefits when used twice daily for 6 months as an adjunct to toothbrushing. Expand
A clinical investigation of the efficacy of three different treatment regimens for the control of plaque and gingivitis.
TLDR
The results of this clinical study support the conclusion that the use of Colgate Total Toothpaste provided statistically significant improvements over the sodium fluoride toothpaste plus flossing regimen with respect to the control of gingivitis and supragingival plaque formation. Expand
