Combination of diabetes mellitus (DM) and periodontal disease (PD) has been a problem. Diabetic cases with PD showed elevated odds ratio (OR) compared to those without PD, where retinopathy 2.8-8.7, nephropathy 1.9-8.5, neuropathy 3.2-6.6, cardiovascular complications 1.3-17.7, and mortality 2.3-8.5. Medical and dental staffs always manage to check DM and PD.
