BACKGROUND: Diabetes is a well known risk factor for Periodontitis and the severity of the periodontal disease is often represented as non-continuous variables that quantify the amount of affected periodontal tissue in partial manner. So, Attachment Loss Surface Area (ALSA) and the Periodontal Inflamed Surface Area (PISA) Index have been introduced in order to find out diseased condition in true sense. AIM: To find out comparison between diabetic and non diabetic patients by using the Attachment Loss Surface Area (ALSA) and the Periodontal Inflamed Surface Area (PISA) Index. MATERIALS AND METHOD: The study was done in department of Periodontology and Implantology among 60 diabetic and 40 non diabetic patients who attended the OPD of general hospital. Clinical examination with ALISA, PISA and Plaque Index was recorded and collected data was subject to statistical analysis. RESULTS: It was found that no statistical difference exists between both of the groups. (p <0.05) CONCLUSION: It was concluded through this study that though as such no difference was found but ALISA and PISA both the parameters can be used to find out the progress of periodontal condition.
