    Aim: The aim of this study was to estimate the prevalence of anemia in patients with periodontitis. Materials and Methods: This study was carried out in 50 subjects with periodontitis reporting to Saveetha Dental College and Hospital seeking for dental treatment. It includes 30 females and 20 males. Hemoglobin count was estimated for those 50 subjects, and the data are tabulated for statistical analyses. A written consent was obtained from each subject for participation in the study. Patients with the chief complaint of periodontitis and age >25 years were included in the study. Patients with any kind of blood-related disorders and dengue were excluded from the study. Results: Of 30 females, 16 have lower hemoglobin count, and among 20 males, 9 had lower hemoglobin count that accounts for 53.3% of females and 45% of males. Consequently, among the 50 subjects, 50% were estimated to have lower hemoglobin count than normal. Conclusion: Patients presenting with periodontitis showed a systematic decrease in hemoglobin level. From the present study, it may be concluded that severe chronic periodontitis is strongly associated with anemia. This should be taken into consideration during periodontal surgery. Before that, it is important to get physician’s consent and proper precautions to be taken to avoid any medical emergencies.
