The consumption of tobacco is related to intensifieddepth of periodontal pockets and ligament detachment, alveolar bone loss andsusceptible to tooth loss. The main aggravating part in development of periodontal disease is contributed by nicotine that is pharmaceutically active component and a primary constituent of tobacco. It have been documented that negative impact on periodontal tissues is due to hindrance in connective tissue proliferation as a result of affected gingival blood circulation and neutrophil, cytokine production caused by nicotine. Thus, abeyance of tobacco is most important part of periodontal treatments as this renders positive influence on the patients' oral and systemic wellbeing.
