Abstract

Purpose :An adequate calcium intake throughout the life is essential for the maintenance of skeleton, by far the largest body reservoir of calcium. It is the fifth most abundunt element on earth and a major mineral required by body. A healthy human adult contains about 1250 gms of calcium. Calcium has an important role in suppressing the formation of atheromatous plaque .Calcium is an important constituent of G.C.F, saliva calculus and also bone. Calcium ions regulate cells of bone marrow. Imbalance between bone formation and resorption,favouring resorption results in demineralization leading to osteoporosis. In periodontitis also bisphosphonates are effective in slowing down bone loss caused by periodontal disease. The amount of calcium needed for signaling and maintaining the extracellular calcium content is relatively small, however skeletal turnover is enhanced in calcium deficiency, the increased turnover representing the body attempt to preserve skeleton.

Key-words : Calcium, Bone, Periodontitis, Osteoporosis, Atherosclerosis
