An Overview of Periodontal Disease and Diabetes Mellitus

October 17, 2020 Health 0

The most prevalent chronic diseases in the world’s adult population are diabetes mellitus and chronic periodontitis. Diabetes mellitus is a clinically and genetically heterogeneous group of metabolic disorders in which blood glucose levels are abnormally large. Periodontitis[1], on the other hand, is an inflammatory teeth-supporting tissue disease caused by a particular microorganism or community of specific microorganisms, resulting in progressive degradation of the periodontal and alveolar ligaments, with pocket formation, recession or both. As a consequence of the dynamic interrelationship between infectious agents and host-related factors, it is a multifactorial disease. Periodontal disorders and diabetes mellitus are closely related and chronic diseases with many similarities in pathobiology are highly prevalent. Related background factors, such as obesity and insulin resistance In this relationship, it might play an important role. Inflammation in the relationship between both is a crucial player. The risk of periodontal diseases is clearly increased by diabetes, and biologically plausible mechanisms have been demonstrated in abundance. It is conceivable that periodontal diseases may act as insulin resistance initiators or propagators in a manner similar to obesity, thereby aggravating glycemic regulation. The effect of periodontal diseases on the glycemic regulation of diabetes and the mechanisms by which this happens are less evident. It is conceivable that periodontal diseases may act as insulin resistance initiators or propagators in a manner similar to obesity, thereby aggravating glycemic regulation. To explain this aspect of the relationship between periodontal diseases and diabetes, more research is required.
