Abstract

Periodontitis and rheumatoid arthritis are chronic inflammatory diseases commonly seen in the elderly. It has been proposed that the two conditions are interrelated and influence the severity of each other. Recently, the role of Porphyromonas gingivalis, a periodontopathogen, has been explained in the pathogenesis and progression of rheumatoid arthritis. It can be inferred from the present review that the two conditions share a common pathobiology, genetics and environmental risk factors. Furthermore, a thorough understanding of the aforementioned mechanisms might enable the development of conjoint treatment modalities beneficial in treating the geriatric population afflicted by both the disorders.
