The oral cavity harbours several infectious agents. However; there is complete lack of awareness among Indians as regards oral hygine is concerned. Several medical reports directly or indirectly indicate that impoverished oral health may lead to cardiovascular diseases, poor glycaemic control in diabetics, tow birth- weight preterm babies and a variety of other medical complications. The relationship between diabetes and inflammations of periodontitis has been extensively studied since the last five decades. A number of medically reasonable mechanisms, based on theoretical and practical evidences, have been proposed to explain the association. The unhealthy oral cavity has been reported to increase complications in the diabetic patients and is considered as an important risk factor. In the present review, we have highlighted how diabetes and periodontitis complicate/ influence each others case history.
