  There are many types of research showing diabetes and Oral health is related, still, the evidence is lacking, which needs to be generated for better understanding. People who have diabetes know the disease can harm the eyes, nerves, kidneys, heart and other important systems in the body. Few People know that diabetes can also cause problems in our mouth too [1]. The risk of periodontal diseases increases the risk of Diabetes, which have been identified with the Cellular mechanism in many textbook and works of literature. As like any inflammatory diseases, periodontal diseases may also increase the resistance to insulin, which in a way further aggravates glycemic control. In many systematic reviews, there were high and low evidence studies suggesting the relationship between diabetes and Periodontal diseases [2].
