Özet

Fourteen male patients with periodontitis and 10 patients free of periodontitis were included in the study. The concentrations of testosterone (T), calcium (Ca), magnesium (Mg), and zinc (Zn) were measured in serum and parotid saliva. Patients with periodontitis had increased Ca and decreased Zn serum levels, and they had decreased Ca and increased T levels in parotid saliva. Furthermore, there was a low correlation between parotid saliva T and Mg levels in the patients with periodontitis (r = 0.61, n = 14, t = 2.663, p < 0.005), and there is an inverse relationship between serum and parotid saliva Mg levels (r = - 0.58, n = 14, t = 2.468, p < 0.05).
