    Aim: The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between cigarette smoking and parodontitis. Method: The study is based on a general literature study that compiles current research in the chosen subject. The study is based on 15 quantitative articles which were searched through PubMed and Sience Direct. Results: The results showed that there was a relation between periodontal disease and cigarette smoking. Smoking was the primary behavioral risk factor for the occurrence of parodontitis and smokers showed a more unhealthy behavior and negative attitude to the general health. Studies also showed that the body's defense against bacteria decreased in smokers who had a high amount of plaque and thus contributed to the immune system overreacts to the bacteria. This in turn caused widespread damage in the tissue and resulted in loss of tissue.Conclusion: The study showed that there is a relation between cigarette smoking and periodontitis. Variables such as age and sex have no influence on the association between cigarette smoking and periodontitis. In contrast, the number of smoked cigarettes per year and the number of years of consumption that have an impact on the occurrence of periodontal disease.
