SMITH, P et al. Diabetes and its impact in periodontal tissues. Rev. Clin. Periodoncia Implantol. Rehabil. Oral [online]. 2012, vol.5, n.2, pp. 90-92. ISSN 0719-0107. doi: 10.4067/S0719-01072012000200008.
Diabetes and periodontal disease correspond to conditions that probably exemplify how a systemic disease may have a strong impact in the periodontium. Although this association has been studied for several years, many of these studies still show contradictory results. The present review analyses the following questions relevant for the clinician in the fields of periodontology: i) Value of the diagnosis of severe periodontitis and its capacity to identify previously un-diagnosed cases of diabetes; ii) Effects of diabetes on periodontal disease; iii) Effects of diabetes on periodontal and peri-implant tissue repair and regeneration and; iv) Effect of periodontal therapy on the metabolic control of diabetes.
