Abstract

Aim: The aim of this study is to analyze the platelet count of patients with bleeding gums.

Material and methods: 50 patients who reported to Saveetha Dental College with a chief complaint of bleeding gums were assessed for their platelet count to find any relationship of bleeding with platelet count.

Reason: Platelets play an essential role in arresting bleeding and aids in clotting mechanism by formation of platelet plug. Low platelet count known as thrombocytopenia accounts for a poor or slow clotting mechanism. Thrombocytopenia is due to destruction of platelets in the blood stream, spleen or liver. It can also be due to chemotherapy, radiotherapy, due to intake of certain drugs, autoimmune diseases etc. Since the platelets are essential to arrest bleeding, this study is to reveal the alterations of platelet count in patients with bleeding gums.

Results: This study highlights the fact that there is no significant difference in the platelet count in patients with bleeding gums.
