Dr. Deepti Gattani, Dr. Nupur Kar, *Dr. Jigyasa Sahu and *Dr. Apoorva Salve

ABSTRACT

Background: The outer surface of lip has many ridges and depressions forming a pattern called lip prints, the study of which is called as Cheiloscopy. Study of epidermal ridge patterns found on thumbs is called Dermatoglyphics. Patients of chronic periodontitis exhibit a strong familial predisposition of periodontal breakdown. Aim: The present study was conducted to determine the correlation between Cheiloscopy and Chronic periodontitis, and Dermatoglyphics and Chronic periodontitis. Material and Method: The present cross-sectional study, comprised of 60 subjects in the age group 30- 55 years irrespective of gender were categorized as Study group (n= 30) comprising of patients diagnosed clinically, with chronic periodontitis having Probing Pocket depth PPD>4mm in more than 30 % sites and control groups (n=30).In both the groups, thumb prints and lip prints were evaluated. Results: The statistical analysis of the data revealed, significant association between the left thumbprint pattern (left loop pattern) and branched lip print type in subjects having chronic periodontitis. Conclusion: Dermatoglyphics and Cheiloscopy may serve as an early predictor/diagnostic tool in identifying high risk group individuals of chronic periodontitis.
