Periodontal disease is the dependent variable of this study; patient age and gender serve as the independent variable. Total 37.5 % patients suffered from periodontitis and 62.5% suffered from gingivitis. Up to 48 years of age the prevalence of gingivitis was higher (70.64%) but periodontitis was more common (64.76%) in case of people over 48 years age. There is a significant (p<0.05) correlation between age and periodontal diseases exists in this study but no significant (p>0.05) correlation identified with gender. Distribution of periodontal diseases shows similar pattern between female (gingivitis=62.61%, periodontitis=37.53%) and male (gingivitis=62.47%, periodontitis=37.39%).Periodontal diseases are primarily correlating with the age but gender may not be associated.
