Abstract: Periodontal diseases are common inflammatory diseases that effect the gingiva and tooth supporting apparatus. In the early stages treatment of periodontal disease involves reversibility of gingivitis so that progression to periodontitis is halted. Resolution of inflammation plus the biofilm attached to the tooth surfaces removed through mechanotherapy, gingival health is restored. However, in the later stage of the disease, periodontitis is irreversible and non-resolving in nature. Therefore, it is generally accepted that etiology of periodontal disease is microbial in nature. Disease progression itself is host mediated. Various modifiable and non-modifiable risk factor contribute to development of periodontitis.
