Abstract

Aim: Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) reportedly affects many body tissues and organs and is detectable in body fluids, such as saliva and gingival crevicular fluid (GCF). Additionally, COVID-19 can cause an increased GCF volume (GCFV). This study investigated GCFV in patients with a history of COVID-19 infection using periopapers.


Methodology: This study included 50 patients (25 males and 25 females) aged 21–69 years who were considered periodontally healthy and had a history of COVID-19 infection. GCF was collected from the central incisors’ buccal sites using paper strips, and GCFV was calculated using a Periotron 8000. 


Results: In patients with a history of COVID-19, the mean GCFV for all patients was 0.5226 ± 0.11 µl. The mean was 0.5208 ± 0.1011 µl in men and 0.5244 ± 0.1261 µl in women. No significant difference was found between the two genders regarding GCFV.


Conclusion: Regarding GCFV, no significant difference was found between individuals with a history of COVID-19 infection and those with no history of COVID-19 infection.
