Dentistry and Diabetes: The Influence of Diabetes in Oral Diseases and Dental Treatments


Diabetes is a chronic disease that occurs when the pancreas does not produce enough insulin or when the body cannot effectively use the insulin that it produces. The number of people with diabetes is increasing. These trends highlight the urgency for a better understanding of diabetes as well as for improving the dental care of patients with diabetes.

Patients with diabetes have increased frequency of periodontitis, tooth loss, and xerostomia, and diabetes has been considered a risk condition for oral surgery and dental implants with the fact that it is associated with delayed wound healing, prevalence of microvascular disease, and impaired response to infection. The well-controlled patient with diabetes is probably at no greater risk of oral complications than is the healthy patient. Therefore, routine dental procedures in well-controlled diabetics do not require specials considerations. However, when dental treatment as surgery is necessary in the poorly controlled diabetic, preventive procedures should be considered.

Given the increasing number of dental patients with diabetes worldwide, a better understanding of mechanisms of the oral manifestations of diabetes is necessary and its comprehensive treatment for prevention of possible complications.

We would like to invite investigators to submit original research articles (i.e., RCT) as well as review articles that will improve our knowledge of the diagnosis, pathogenesis, and treatment of dental diseases in patients with diabetes.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • The diagnosis, pathogenesis, and clinical management of diabetes dental patient
  • Advances in the knowledge of the diabetes in diseases of oral mucosa
  • The influence of diabetes in the development of periodontal diseases
  • Diabetes in the pathogenesis of periapical lesions
  • Clinical approach of the salivary gland dysfunction in diabetes patients
  • The comprehensive dental treatment of the patient with diabetes
  • Evaluation of diabetes in healing of oral surgery
  • Diabetes as risk factor for implant dental treatment
  • Role of oral microbiota in peridontal disease
