Diabetes is considered a global health issue among clinical society with an increasing incidence. Awareness of the disease etiologies, high-risk group, and the associated complications can provide a critical approach for disease prevention and management. We conducted an electronic database search for suitable studies and included all studies reporting the association between periodontal diseases and diabetes. There was a significant increase in periodontal disease among diabetic patients. Moreover, a mutual association between periodontal disease and glycemic control was reported by many studies. A good clinical collaboration between dentists and physicians is a must a successful detection and treatment of patients with diabetes. Large-scale studies are essential to get more solid results and to resolve the heterogeneous reporting in literature.
