Abstract: Background- The main goal in periodontal surgery is the healing by primary
intention because there is less scarring, more rapid healing and reduced discomfort.
Cyanoacrylate is a tissue adhesive which provides benefits to the patient as a faster healing
and less postoperative pain. Flap surgery for periodontal reattachment, demands close
postoperative adaptation for the gingival tissue onto the prepared tooth surface. Objective- To
evaluate the healing after periodontal flap surgery using isoamyl 2‑ cyanoacrylate and silk
sutures. Material and Methods- In this study, 40 patients of systemically healthy will be
selected. Groups will be divided into test and control which consist of 20 defects in each.
Informed written consent will be obtained from all the subjects before the surgery. Clinical
measurements like Plaque index, Papillary bleeding index, Probing pocket depth, Healing
index will be recorded. The test group will be treated by isoamyl 2‑ cyanoacrylate, while the
control group will be treated by Silk suture after periodontal flap surgery. Patients will be
recalled at 1, 3, 6 months post surgically for periodontal re-evaluation. Expected Result- When
all the parameters will be compared at 6 months post-operatively to baseline data, both the
treatment group (test and control) will show significant CAL gain, PPD reduction. Test group
will be found better healing as compared to control. Conclusion- Both the treatment group
(test and control) will show significant CAL gain, PPD reduction. This study will be achieved
effective healing response after periodontal flap surgery with sutures as compared to
cyanoacrylate.

Abstract: Background- Excessive accumulation of fat results into obesity. Obesity further
have an adverse effect on health as it has been seen to be associated with diabetes mellitus,
hypertension, heart disease like coronary artery disease, cerebrovascular disease such as
hemorrhagic and ischemic stroke, metabolic syndrome like insulin resistance, some
cancers such as cancer of esophagus, thyroid, kidney, uterus, colon and breast, and
psychosocial problems. Also, obesity is considered to be a risk factor for periodontitis
which is an inflammation of supporting periodontal structures around the tooth which
results from the complex interaction between pathogenic bacteria and the host immune
response. However, the impact of obesity on different severity of periodontal disease is not
evaluated in rural population. Aim: To evaluate the relationship between obesity and the
severity of periodontal disease in Rural population. Methodology: A total 400 obese
subjects will be included in the study. Biometric parameters like age, weight, height, waist
and neck circumference, subcutaneous skin fold will be evaluated. Also periodontal
parameters like Plaque index (PI), Papillary bleeding index (PBI), Probing pocket depth
(PPD), Clinical attachment level (CAL) and Gingival recession (REC) will be evaluated
and co-relation between these parameters will be carried out. Results: A statistically
significant association will be observed between BMI and periodontitis of overweight and
obese study individuals having periodontitis. A positive co-relation will be observed
between biometric parameters and periodontal status of obese individual. Conclusion: A
significant association will be observed between BMI and periodontitis of overweight and
obese study individuals having periodontitis in rural population.
