Abstract

Background: The aim of this study is to analyze the correlations between plaque index (PlI), gingival index (GI), probable pocket depth (PPD), clinical attachment level (CAL), aspartate aminotransferase (AST), N-benzoyl-dl-arginine-2-naphthylamide (BANA) and sulfide ion activity (SIA) of diabetic patients with chronic periodontitis with regard to disease activity detected by AST levels.
