Aim and Objective

To study the bacteremia in patients with chronic periodontitis after dental treatment.


Bacteremia is the presence of bacteria in the blood. Bacteremia can have several consequences. The immune response to the bacteria can cause sepsis and septic shock, which has a relatively high mortality rate. Bacteria can spread through blood to the other parts of the body (hematogenous spread) causing infection away from the orginal site of infection. Eg endocarditid or osteomyelitis. Dental or medical procedures can lead to bacteremia. During dental procedures bacteria living on the gums may become dislodged and enter the blood stream.


The study is conducted to find out the occurance of bacteremia in chronic periodontitis patients after dental treatment.


Blood sample collected from the patients after dental treatment.



Bacteremia, scaling, periodontitis.
