Resumen

STEFFENS, JOÃO PAULO et al. Review on periodontal disease and metabolic control of diabetes mellitus. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2010, vol.138, n.9, pp.1172-1178. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872010000900014.

There may be an interaction between periodontal disease and some systemic diseases such as diabetes mellitus. The objective of this review was to verify, by means of a review of clinical trials, if there is a positive association between periodontal disease and the glycemic control of type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM-2) patients. Eleven articles that fi t the study criteria were revised. It was concluded that periodontal disease may influence the metabolic control of DM-2. Additional studies with larger sample sizes and longer follow up are necessary for a better clarification of this issue.
