Core Tip The bidirectional association between T2DM and periodontitis is now well established, resulting in periodontal disease being considered as the 6th major complication of DM after CVD, eye disease, neuropathy, nephropathy, and peripheral vascular disease. Periodontal inflammation worsens systemic insulin resistance with worsening of DM. A higher prevalence of periodontitis is seen in patients with poor glycemic control presumably from increased level of inflammation and risk of tissue destruction in these patients. Periodontitis if undiagnosed or left untreated can result in eventual tooth loss. A study by Xu et al. in the recent issue of the World Journal of Diabetes highlights the predictive factors associated with periodontitis in patients with T2DM to enable readers to have a better understanding of both diseases.
