SOUZA, Cláudia Régia Dias de et al. Assessment of periodontal condition of kidney patients in hemodialysis. Rev. Assoc. Med. Bras. [online]. 2005, vol.51, n.5, pp.285-289. ISSN 0104-4230.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-42302005000500021.

OBJECTIVES AND METHODS: Thirty patients undergoing hemodialysis were evaluated for their periodontal condition through plaque, calculus and gingival indexes; PSR and IgA present in the saliva were also appraised in order to determine the periodontal condition of patients presenting chronic kidney disease. RESULTS: Results obtained demonstrated that in the studied group the plaque, calculus and gingival indexes were high. With regard to these patients' requirement to undergo periodontal treatment, most patients submitted to hemodialysis needed better oral hygiene, in addition to supra and sub gingival scraping and topic application of fluor (code 2). As to the IgA amount present in the saliva, only three patients showed a low density. CONCLUSIONS: Patients presenting chronic kidney disease disclosed a tendency for greater bacterial plaque concentration, high formation of dental calculus suggesting the need for periodontal treatment comprising supra and sub gingival scraping.
