This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:
The objective is to determine whether periodontal therapy is a useful adjunctive treatment for gastric H. pylori infection. Specifically, the primary aim is to compare the relative efficacy of periodontal therapy plus triple eradication therapy with triple eradication therapy alone in the treatment of gastric H. pylori infection by reviewing current RCTs.
The secondary objective is to compare the recurrence rate of gastric H. pylori infection after successful eradication in different treatments.
