Background: Periodontitis is an inflammatory disease of the supporting tissues of the teeth. The present study was conducted to assess CRP level in healthy and periodontitis patients. Materials & Methods: The present study was conducted on 50 subjects chronic gingivitis and periodontitis. Patients were divided into 3 groups. Group I were controls, group II were gingivitis patients and group III were periodontitis patients. Levels of CRP were quantified using a sandwich enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Results: Group I was control group, group II was chronic gingivitis group and group III was periodontitis group III. Each group had 25 subjects. The mean PD in group I was 1.24 mm, in group II was 3.11 mm and in group III was 3.44. AL was 1.96 mm in group I, 4.02 mm in group II and 4.27 mm in group III. The difference was significant (P< 0.05). The mean CRP level was 3018.2 pg/ml in group I, 3567.7 pg/ml in group II and 5231.9 pg/ml in group III. The difference was significant (P< 0.05).
