This article presents the results of a clinical examination of the state of periodontal tissues in patients undergoing dispensary observation by an endocrinologist diagnosed with hypothyroidism of the primary and secondary forms. In patients with hypothyroidism, compared with patients without thyroid pathology, there is a deterioration in the parameters of periodontal indices: the Green-Vermillion hygiene index, the Silness-Loe gingival index, and the Russell periodontal index. Under conditions of hypothyroidism, patients were identified as subjective (dry mouth, bleeding gums during toothbrushing, the presence of dental plaque, progressive decay and loss of teeth) and objective (supra- and subgingival dental plaque, anemicity, edema of the oral mucosa (OOM) and alveolar processes, lining of the tongue, tooth mobility of varying degrees) changes in the oral cavity.

Keywords: periodontium, thyroid gland, inflammatory periodontal diseases, hypothyroidism.
