Background and Aims: Chronic periodontitis is an inflammatory disease that results from the accumulation of plaque and mass around the gingival tissue. Hypertension is one of the main causes of fertility in the world.  The present study aimed to compare periodontal parameters’ means in people with normal blood pressure and hypertension.
Material and Methods:  This cross-sectional descriptive-analytic study was conducted on patients referred to the Dental School of Golestan University of Medical Sciences. The participants were selected from patients referred to the dental school by convenience sampling method. Firstly, the periodontal parameters including periodontal pocket depth (PPD), clinical attachment loss (CAL), gingival index (GI), and plaque index (PI), were assessed in all of the participants.  Then, the patient's blood pressure was measured.
Results: Participants in this study were 280 subjects including 102 male and 178 female between the ages of 20 to 50 years with a mean age of 33 ± 7.5. However, the increased means of plaque index, gingival index, and periodontal pocket depth in people with high blood pressure (both systolic and diastolic) compared to normal blood pressure were not statistically significant. Still, the mean of clinical attachment loss was significantly higher in people with high blood pressure (0.79 ± 0.78) than in people with normal blood pressure (0.53 ± 0.57) (P-value = 0.03).
Conclusion: Considering the changes in periodontal parameters in people with high and normal blood pressure and the possibility of a possible relationship between periodontal tissue loss and high blood pressure as a clinical event, the joint efforts of physicians and dentists can be played an effective role in improving community general health.
