Periodontitis is a chronic inflammatory disease characterized by the enhanced expression of inflammatory mediators leading to alveolar bone resorption.1 Although, oral bacterial infection is a major factor of Periodontitis, its progression and severity depends upon interplay between genetic and environmental factors. . Periodontopathic bacteria produce many virulence factors, such as lipopolysaccharide(LPS) including the production of inflammatory cytokines which leads to the stimulation of host cells, thus playing an important role in mediating and controlling cellular interactions.
