Figure 1: The destruction of tissues in periodontitis is the result of a large number of cytokines and effector molecules released by resident and migrating cells. The microbial virulence factors enter into the blood circulation and impacts on systemic health. TNF: Tumor necrosis factor-alpha, IL: Interleukin, PGE: Prostaglandin, LPS: Lipopolysaccharide
