PD is an inflammatory illness affecting tissues that surrounds teeth. Co morbidities linked with PD are age, smoking, diabetes, hereditary, poor oral hygiene. These factors have been linked with severity of COVID-19, caused by virus namely corona virus “SARS-CoV-2.” As dysbiotic, inflammation and comorbidities disturb general well-being, it is probable that “periodontal status indicates the risk of complication of COVID-19”. Patients with COPD have a higher risk of provocation with COVID. Pregnancies can be complicated with co infection of SARS-CoV-2 with periodontal disease. Diabetic people also have PD probably because they are more prone to contract infections and higher chances to develop COVID-19 can also be increased with obesity and its consequences. Researchers have proved that aging is linked with PD and severe COVID-19 along with these factors. Smoking is the major risk factor in PD which leads to increase in enzyme ACE2; it's an important element for development of covid-19.
