Methodology: A total of 154 systemically healthy subjects (73 periodontally healthy and 81 with chronic periodontitis) of age group 25-50 years were selected. Periodontal parameters including Plaque Index (PI), Gingival Index (GI), Pocket Depth (PD), Clinical Attachment Level (CAL) were measured. Venous blood samples were taken to analyze the platelet count. Result and Conclusions: The platelet count was higher in subjects with chronic periodontitis as compared to healthy but the result was statistically non significant.
