Abstract Synopsis


Dr. Ilario Veropalumbo, Prof. Dr. Stefano Rizza


Diabetes is a pathology characterized by higher glycemic levels than physiological rates. The
pathogenesis and mechanisms that lead to hyperglycemia are complex and include insulin
resistance, insulin secretion deficiency, chronic inflammation and endothelial dysfunction. Type 2
diabetes is the most common type of diabetes and represents one of the most expensive chronic
diseases in the world and a challenge for the health system of each country. Diabetes is therefore a
sort of a world epidemic whose prevalence is alarmingly rising with age and bad lifestyle, including
reduced physical activity and hypercaloric diet. As a result, diabetes is a daily challenge for all
dentists who must know about this disease, its various pathogenic forms and the main therapeutic
options available. Chronic hyperglycemia of the diabetic patient is of considerable impact for
patients with periodontal disease. Periodontal problems, dental caries and the loss of teeth are
common in diabetic subjects, especially in those with poor metabolic control. Numerous scientific
evidence indicates that diabetes and its poor glycemic control, constitute an important risk factor for
periodontitis. This presentation demonstrates an analysis of the close relationship between diabetes
and oral health, and focuses mainly on periodontal disease. The purpose of this study was to
describe the correct management of the patients with periodontal diseases, suffering from diabetes,
highlighting how proper periodontal control has positive effects on diabetes disease.
