Identifying periodontitis risk factors through a retrospective analysis of 80 cases
Objectives: To investigate periodontitis risk factors and to establish a reference framework for identifying factors that place individuals at greater risk for periodontitis.
Methods: Clinical data from 80 periodontitis patients admitted in the Department of Stomatology at Hebei Provincial People’s Hospital and treated between March 2020 and March 2021 were retrospectively analyzed.
Results: Univariate analysis showed that lower daily brushing frequencies, decreased tooth brushing duration, decreased scaling frequency, dietary habits, smoking and drinking, genetic factors, diabetes, hypertension, and obesity were more prevalent among periodontitis patients than healthy controls. Multivariate binary logistic analysis showed that daily brushing frequency, routine scaling, smoking, drinking, heredity, diabetes, hypertension, and obesity were all risk factors for periodontitis.
Conclusions: There are many risk factors for periodontitis. Clinicians need to be aware of these factors for early detection and treatment of the disease.
