Introduction:The correlation between psychiatric and anxiety states and occurrence of periodontal disease has been reported. The aim of this study was to evaluate periodontal diseases in patients with depression compared with the control group. Materials & Methods:In this cross-sectional study, a case group consisted of 30 patients with depression in Mashhad Ebnesina hospital whose severity was assessed by Beck depression inventory, were selected. A group of 30 individuals, who had been referred to oral medicine department of Mashhad dental school, were considered as the control group. The two groups matched in sex with the age range of 20-40 years. The patients were undergone periodontal examinations using mirror and Williams’s periodontal probe. Other personal information including age, sex, education level and occupation were also recorded. The data were analyzed using SPSS soft ware (t-test, ANOVA and Duncan test). Results:Moderate depression was the most common type and severe depression was the least common. In this study we didn’t find any significant relationship between depression and periodontal disease, but there was a significant relationship between case and control group in Plaque index and bleeding on probing (P=0.03). There were not any significant differences in probing depth, clinical attachment level and gingival index between the two groups (P>0.05). Conclusion:No Significant relationship was found between depression and periodontal diseases. Plaque index and bleeding on probing were different in the two groups although other indices Such as pocket depth and attachment loss were not significantly different in the two groups.
