Periodontitis is an infection of the supporting tissues of the teeth. Just like periodontitis can have an effect on systemic health, there are various systemic conditions that can also have an impact on periodontium. There are various systemic conditions like hypertension, diabetes, cardiac issues, which do have an effect on periodontium and for these individuals, the dental practitioner should have a thorough knowledge about the mechanism by which these systemic conditions can have an ill effect on the periodontium and henceforth special treatment considerations are needed for these types of individuals while treating their periodontal conditions. Aspirin is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug, as well as a blood thinner, that is used by patients who have undergone angioplasty, cardiac bypass surgery, and patients having polycythemia. Talking in terms of dental aspects as bleeding is a usual consequence of periodontal treatment procedures like scaling, flap surgeries, so special considerations needed to be kept in mind while treating these types of patients in order to avoid any unnecessary consequences because of excessive bleeding. This review aims to guide the clinical practitioners regarding how aspirin is correlated to periodontal health, as well as what all considerations needed to be kept in mind while planning periodontal treatment for the patients on aspirin.
