Dr. Suhani Goel [2]

Abstract: Aim: This study aimed to investigate whether there was a relationship between ABO blood types and periodontal disorders. Material and Method: A total of 50 systemically healthy patients aged between 20 to 65 years were selected. Based on periodontal examination (Gingival index, Plaque index, and periodontitis score), subjects were split into three groups: group I (Healthy subjects), group II (subjects with Gingivitis), and Group III (subjects with Periodontitis). ABO Blood grouping wasperformed via the method called ABO typing. Results: Blood group B showed a significantly higher percentage in the periodontitis group while blood group O showed a higher percentage in the gingivitis group. The lowest percentage of periodontal disease was observed in blood group AB. Conclusion: Based on the findings of this study, it can be deduced that there is a significant association between blood types and Periodontal disease.
