    Background: The highly use of generators creating an alarming level of pollution (air and noise) in all regions of the world. One of the dangerous pollutant that emitted into environment during combustion process of diesel engines is The soot which is impure carbon particles known for their direct and broad impact on the respiratory organs and some polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons which responsible for their cancer properties are associated with it. As Environmental conditions have many serious impacts on the general health of humans, it has also on oral status. Aim: The aim of the study was to evaluate periodontal health status, salivary antioxidants (catalase, total antioxidant capacity and zinc) and protein carbonyl as oxidative stress marker in relation to periodontal disease among a group of diesel generator workers...
