This case-control study was done on 20 COPD patients (including 9 females and 11 males) and 20 non-COPD healthy subjects (including 11 females and 9 males) within the age range of 30 to 65 years old. In the COPD group, the subjects were all non-smokers and without any systemic illness, apart from COPD. The mean clinical attachment loss (CAL), probing pocket depth (PPD), and sulcus bleeding index (SBI) was calculated and compared between the two groups.
