Background: In patients with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), chronic periodontitis (CP) contributed to increased oxidative stress (OS), owing to an increase in serum and salivary 8-hydroxy-2'-deoxyguanosine (8-OHdG) and malondialdehyde (MDA) levels and a decrease in serum total antioxidant status (TAS) levels. The aim of the present study is to investigate salivary and serum 8-OHdG and MDA levels as well as total antioxidant status (TAS) in females with CP and PCOS compared with healthy females.
