Oral microbe, periodontitis and oral cancer: Unraveling the complex connection


Author(s): Richa Verma, Sameep Garg* and Preeti Kale

Periodontitis and oral cancer are significant health concerns with considerable impacts on global populations. Despite their apparent dissimilarity, emerging evidence suggests a possible association between these two conditions. This review article aims to explore the complex connection between periodontitis and oral cancer, delving into potential shared risk factors, underlying biological mechanisms, and the latest research findings. Chronic inflammation, a hallmark feature of periodontitis, is increasingly recognized as a key player in cancer development. Shared risk factors, such as smoking and poor oral hygiene, are associated with both periodontitis and oral cancer. This review aims to contribute to the development of preventive strategies and therapeutic approaches for both conditions. Ultimately, enhancing oral health outcomes and strengthening cancer prevention efforts requires a multifaceted approach, addressing both periodontitis and oral cancer as intertwined components of oral health management.
