AbstractBackground: Periodontal infection may induce systemic vascular/endothelial dysfunction signifying a potential link between hypertension and periodontitis. Methods: A convenience sample of 204 adults attending a university teaching hospital without (C: control) or with essential hypertension [EH; n = 102, duration (mean ± SD) 11.4 ± 6.9 years] was surveyed in this cross sectional study. Patients with concomitant systemic conditions were excluded. Dental history, oral hygiene habits and blood pressure were recorded. Plaque score (Pl%), bleeding on probing (BOP%), probing pocket depth (PPD) and probing attachment level (PAL) were noted and periodontitis severity was determined according to AAP/CDC case definition guidelines. Results: Both groups exhibited poor oral hygiene. EH group had higher mean full‐mouth PAL/PPD (3.16/2.73 vs. 2.51/2.40, P < 0.001). 51.0%/30.4% of the EH/C participants had severe periodontitis (P < 0.001). Regression analysis indicated systolic blood pressure, age, smoking and BOP% were associated with more severe periodontitis (r2 = 0.207, P < 0.05) while BOP%, PAL and fewer missing teeth were associated with worse mean PPD (r2 = 0.612, P < 0.05). Conclusions: Within the limitations of this study, the majority of hospital attendees surveyed exhibited poor plaque control, while periodontitis severity was found to be associated with EH, and smoking.
