This study examined whether mercury exposure is associated with periodontitis. The results suggest that mercury exposure had an independent association with periodontitis. Males with high mercury levels had a 50.0% higher probability of having periodontitis than females with normal mercury levels. High body-burden mercury in males might be a contributory factor linked with periodontitis.
