Lecture synopsis

  • Oral Disease (Periodontitis), a chronic infectious disease with manifestations of a local and systemic host response, appears to have influences on general health and the expression of some systemic diseases or conditions. There is an increasing interest over recent years in the relationship between periodontal and systemic health.

  • Periodontitis can have significant effects on general health, and several systemic diseases and conditions can be potential risk factors for periodontitis as well. Thus, the periodontal–systemic interlink can be aptly labeled as a two-way road.

  • Irrespective of the significant or non-significant correlation and varying strength of periodontal-systemic interlink that a number of studies have depicted, these exhaustive researches by providing scientific evidence of the possible interactive mechanism between oral and systemic health, have contributed extensively in expanding one’s horizon, from viewing periodontal disease as a ‘localized entity’ to ‘one effecting the whole body’.

  • This is potentially of great public health significance, as periodontal disease is largely preventable and, in many instances, readily treatable. Based on the findings of substantial amount of studies offering new insights into the concept of the oral cavity as one system interconnected with the whole human body, it is imperative to leave the dualistic notion that the oral cavity is separate from the rest of the body.

  • Hence, one can aptly call mouth as ‘The gateway of the body’, periodontal disease – ‘A silent disease’ and Periopathogens - ‘termites’. And this marks the beginning of a new era – “The Era of Periodontal Medicine” – ‘Redefining Periodontal-Systemic Interlink’.
