Sažetak

Aim: The aim of this study was to investigate the prevalence of permanent teeth extracted due to periodontal disease and its relation to several aspects such as age, gender and type of extracted teeth due to periodontal and non-periodontal reasons, among patients attending a private practice. Material and Methods: Study population consisted of 600 patients, 270 males and 330 females, aged 18 to 74 years from a private practice in Greece. The reasons for extractions of teeth in the sample for a period of two years were obtained including aspects such as age, gender and the type of teeth extracted due to periodontal and non-periodontal reasons. Data were statistically analyzed using chi-square test. Results: One thousand four hundred and eighteen permanent teeth were extracted for various reasons during the study period. Majority (36.4%) were extracted because of periodontal reasons, 24.5% for dental caries and 31.1% for other reasons such as dental caries and periodontal disease, root trauma, vertical fracture of root/crown, orthodontic reasons, etc. The difference between the extracted teeth due to periodontal and non-periodontal reasons was statistically significant (p<0.01). Furthermore, the average number of extracted teeth due to periodontal disease showed an increasing percentage with age. Maxillary and mandibular 1st and 2nd molars were the most frequently extracted teeth due to periodontal reasons than the other posterior teeth of both jaws, however, the anterior teeth of both jaws with mobility III grade, the anterior teeth of both jaws with attachment loss (≥5.0mm) and the posterior teeth of both jaws with furcation involvement (IV grade) were the most frequently extracted teeth due to periodontal reasons solely. Conclusions: Although the targets of the WHO regarding the reduction of dental caries were accomplished, periodontal disease was still the main cause of tooth extraction and showed an increasing percentage with age.
