Abstract35 patients receiving regular supportive periodontal therapy (SPT) and showing signs of localized persistent or recurrent periodontitis were enrolled in the study. Within 1 week after SPT, each patient had a tetracycline HCl loaded ethylene vinyl acetate co-polymer fiber placed into the periodontal pocket of 1 randomly selected tooth with persistent or recurrent periodontitis (test); the fiber was removed after 9.5±2.0 days. A non-adjacent tooth with persistent or recurrent periodontitis in a separate quadrant, which received no further treatment, served as a control. A total of 28 patients completed the 6-month study. Compared to control teeth, in test teeth at 6 months significantly (p<0.01) lower scores were found for gingival index, pocket probing depths, and PMN elastase-α1-proteinase inhibitor concentrations in gingival crevicular fluid. With the exception of plaque index scores, test teeth demonstrated significant reductions from baseline to 6 months in all parameters (p<0.05). Conversely, all parameter measurements in control teeth, except bleeding on probing, showed no significant difference between baseline and 6-month values. The results suggest that the use of controlled topical application of tetracycline HCl may improve periodontal health and reduce the risk of disease progression in localized persistent or recurrent periodontitis. Moreover, the effects of this application appear to be sustained for at least 6 months. © Munksgaard, 1996.
