Abstract

Periodontitis is known to be a progressive inflammatory lesion that may lead to the deterioration of the attachment of the periodontal apparatus & loss of structures involved in the apparatus, mainly the gingiva, pdl, cementum & alveolar bone leading to loss of teeth.  Therefore, the interest in learning more about the connections between periodontal disease and nutrition has increased as research on the pathophysiology of periodontal disease and the function of nutrition has progressed. A subfield of nutritional science called nutrigenomics focuses on understanding the molecular interactions of nutrients and genomes. This enables us to recognize early-stage abnormalities in this control and tells us of the impact of nutrition on metabolic pathways & homeostatic regulation. In this review, the role of nutrition in periodontal disease is thoroughly discussed, and dietary recommendations are made for preventing periodontal disease.

Keywords: Nutrition, epigenetics, periodontal health, nutrigenomics
