    Background: Chronic periodontitis is a critical widespread health problem among population in both developing and industrialized countries with several etiological and associated risk factors. Many aerobic and anaerobic bacteria like aggregatibacter actinomycotemcomitans (a gram negative coccobacillus) and Porphyromonas Gingivalis act synergistically associated with this type of disease. Hypothalamicpituitary-adrenal axis release cortisol hormone which exerted in saliva ,and the drop of salivary melatonin hormone levels which act as antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory agent, might tip the host–bacteria interaction in a favour of bacteria causing increase in off attachment loss .also stress caused by elevated cortisol hormone may affect how well people look after their oral hygiene and daily plaque removal which leads to devel..
