The main aim of this study is to provide systemic update on periodontal disease regarding its stages, occurrence, pathophysiology, diagnosis, treatment, and management. The pathophysiology of periodontal disease is associated with dental plaque, microbial biofilm formation and immunogenicity of host cell. The severity of this disease depends upon risk factors and chronological stages. Prevention is attained by daily maintenance of oral hygiene. Various surgical and non-surgical treatments are available to control the formation of microbial biofilm. Daily maintenance and periodic management of this disease control worsening of condition and shows definite improvement in oral health.
