|Condition or disease|
Periodontal disease is a chronic adult condition. Bacteria implicated in the etiology of this disease causes destruction of connective tissue and bone. As a result of stimulation by bacterial antigen PMN produces free radicals via respiratory burst as a part of host response to infection.
Free radicals can be defined as molecules or molecular fragments with an unpaired electron which imparts certain characteristics to the free radicals such as reactivity . Reactive free radicals are able to produce chemical modifications and to damage proteins, lipids, carbohydrates and nucleotides in the tissues.
