    Aim: The aim of the study is to evaluate the serum calcium (Ca) levels in patients with chronic periodontitis. Introduction: Periodontitis is defined as an inflammatory disease of the supporting tissues of the teeth caused by specific microorganisms, or group of specific microorganisms, resulting in progressive destruction of the periodontal ligament and alveolar bone with increased probing depth, recession, or both. Ca mineral is abundant and essential element present in the bones and teeth, offering a structural function. It is vital for proper development and maintenance of calcified oral tissues. The deficiency of serum Ca is a risk factor periodontal disease and salivary Ca, due to its affinity to be readily taken up by plaque, is an important factor not only regarding the onset of periodontitis but also significantly with regard to dental health. This study shows the relation of serum Ca level with periodontitis. Materials and Methods: A total of 40 patients were selected from those attending the outpatient department of Saveetha Dental College and Hospitals and divided into two groups as follows: Group I – Normal healthy individuals – 20, Group II – Individuals with periodontitis – 20. Sample Collection: Informed consent was obtained from the patient before sample collection. Blood was collected 3 h after lunch approximately at 4 pm. About 3 ml of venous blood was collected and distributed in plain collection tubes and centrifuged in 3000 rpm for serum. Then, serum was separated and analyzed to estimate the cortisol by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay using ROBONIK ELISA READER. Results: All the data were analyzed using the SPSS package. Paired sample t-test analysis was done to find out significant differences between the two groups. All the tests were considered statistically significant at P < 0.05 level.
