Periodontal disease comprises mild to severe inflammatory host responses to oral bacteria that can cause destruction of the tooth supporting tissue. We report genome sequences for eighteen clinical isolates of Porphyromonas gingivalis, Prevotella intermedia and Tannerella forsythia, Gram-negative obligate anaerobes that play a role in the periodontal disease process.
