Aim: The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between initial probing depth (IPD) and changes in clinical parameters following non-surgical periodontal treatment (NPT) in chronic periodontitis patients.
Material and Methods: A total of 1672 periodontal pockets having 3 mm≤IPD≤9 mm in 15 chronic periodontitis patients were included. NPT consisting of oral hygiene instructions, scaling and root planing was applied in two sessions. Probing depth (PD), clinical attachment level, gingival recession (GR) were measured before and eight weeks after treatment. Pocket sites were grouped according to their IPD and root number of teeth as single- or multi-rooted.

- Probing Depth [ Time Frame: 8 week ]Probing depth is defined as the distance from the free gingival margin to the bottom of the periodontal pocket.
- Clinical attachment level [ Time Frame: 8 week ]Clinical attachment level is defined as the distance from the cementoenamel junction to the bottom of the periodontal pocket
- Gingival recession [ Time Frame: 8 week ]Gingival recession is defined as the distance from cementoenamel junction to free gingival margin.
