COVID-19 has been declared as the pandemic throughout the world-by-World Health Organization. Research scholars all over the world are scrambling to gain knowledge of this novel corona virus that has been associated with the disease. Periodontal disease is a group of infectious, inflammatory disorders with the main pathogenic mechanism rooted in cytokine release. COVID-19 and periodontal disease both show the same cytokine expression to a great extent. In this era of COVID-19 understanding of this association between the two seems very important.
