Basic care for periodontal disease may not be enough for patients with diabetes
A recent study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that nonsurgical treatment of periodontal disease does not improve glycemic control in patients with type 2 diabetes. Despite these results, the American Academy of Periodontology continues to encourage patients with diabetes to maintain periodontal health and receive appropriate treatment for any periodontal disease.
