Diabetes mellitus is a common problem in our day to day life. It is very much responsible for body damage. Likewise, oral health is not just limited to oral cavity only. It is associated with systemic health also. Periodontitis or infection of supporting tooth tissues is considered as the sixth complication of diabetes mellitus. It follows a two way relationship with diabetes. Gum health can be a key health indicator in diabetic individuals due to presence of abscesses and poor wound healing. There can be chances of halitosis also. Similarly diabetic individuals can have periodontal conditions like clinical attachment loss and bone destruction. So in both the conditions there is a need to develop a comprehensive outlook to treat both the conditions in a best way.
