Abstract

Objective: Hyperlipidemia is a known cardiovascular disease risk factor. A common biological mechanism between systemic diseases, such as cardiovascular diseases, and periodontal diseases has been suggested. This study aimed to examine the association between blood lipid profile and the severity of aggressive periodontitis (AgP).
