Various biomarkers in serum/plasma have been evaluated in patients with periodontitis. Ferritin has emerged as a potential diagnostic marker in the assessment of oral and systemic diseases, particularly periodontal diseases. Ferritin concentrations in serum of patients with chronic periodontitis (CP) have not been evaluated, for changes in relation to the effectiveness of periodontal therapy. So the aim of this review is to identify the causal relationship, if any between CP and serum ferritin levels. It was found that serum ferritin level can be used as a biomarker in evaluating the effectiveness of periodontal therapy in CP patients. More interventional studies with higher sample size are required to ascertain the role of serum ferritin levels in evaluating the periodontal health status.
