Tooth loss and alveolar bone crest loss during supportive periodontal therapy in patients with generalized aggressive periodontitis: retrospective study with follow-up of 8 to 15 years.


AIM To determine the incidence of tooth loss in patients with generalized aggressive periodontitis (GAgP) during supportive periodontal therapy (SPT), identify tooth loss risk factors, and quantify alveolar crest height changes on periapical X-ray during follow-up. MATERIAL AND METHODS This retrospective study included 25 GAgP patients with 656 teeth… (More)
