Periodontal Disease and COVID 19
Journal of Pharmaceutical Research International,
The aim of this study is to assess the association of periodontal disease and COVID 19. Coronavirus have been announced pandemic along the globe by the WHO, which have severely affected every countries healthcare framework and health care professionals globally. Due to this pandemic every individual facing severe problems both economically and emotionally. The similarity seen on inflammatory response pathway shows there is a potential relationship between COVID-19 and Periodontitis are related. Considering the relationship, significant importance should be given to maintain periodontal health, maintaining careful and good oral hygiene in the COVID-19 situation. There is also chance of feasibility that periodontal disease can be susceptible for an individual’s COVID-19 unfavourable outcomes. This relationship shows the interrelation among periodontal disease and COVID-19 and between the cytokine relationship which advices in improving hygiene in oral cavity during this COVID situation. And it is found individuals with periodontal disease have high risk of getting COVID associated unfavourable consequences.
