the aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between smoking and periodontal status.
Methods: This study conducted a survey for the 15 1 adults aged 30 to 59 from Oct. 1,2006 to Mar. 30,2007 and the 1st examination through a clinical periodontal index and a radiograph to analyze the
periodontal status in smoking status. For the inspection of periodontal status, t-test and one-way analysis
of variance was conducted.
Results: In terms of the number of quadrants possessing periodontal pocket, the groups of
smokers(3.34) and former smokers(3.38) were higher than the non-smokers group(2.72) and the amount
of loss for interproximal bone was noticeably more abundant in the groups of smokers(67.23) and
former smokers(81.97) than in the non-smoker group(49.44). There were no differences in smoking
characteristics between the smoking terms, but there were statistically significant differences in the
amount of smoking between the group who smoked less than 20 cigarettes(56.24) and that smoked
more than 21 cigarettes(97.45) and the group who smoked less than 10 cigarettes(49.44) while drinking
alcohol and that smoked more than 11 cigarettes(87.56) while drinking.
Conclusions: Smoking is not related to 0' Leary Plaque Index, Loe & Silness index and number of
missing teeth; however, it has been found that the impact of smoking was conspicuous in the
improvement effects of periodontal status as well as the number of quadrants possessing periodontal
pocket, amount of loss for interproximal bone.
