Human identification during mass disasters using the stereotyped techniques such as fingerprint analysis is a cumbersome task. With a view to overcome this predicament, dental evidence of the deceased has gained importance in the recent years. Various branches of dentistry have augmented forensic research through innumerable scientific contributions. The following narrative review of literature aims to summarize the findings of studies that reported periodontal associations or potential associations that could play a role in forensic research. It is designed to inspire the "perio-society" to lend a helping hand to forensic odontology.
