Diabetes mellitus type 2 is the most commonly diagnosed metabolic disorder, and its prevalence is expected to increase so much, that by 2030 approximately 10% of the population will have diabetes (especially type 2). The aim of this study: is to assess the treatment methods used for oral odontogenic infections in patients with type 2 diabetes, as well as postoperative complications depending on the applied treatment method. Materials and methods: a group of 112 patients with marginal inflammatory pathology was selected and evaluated. The followed parameters were: age, gender, inflammatory lesions, treatment type, one week, three and six months postoperative evolution. Data were centralized in electronic format using Microsoft Excel software. Results: The average age of patients was 57.3, and gender distribution was almost equal (51.78% males vs. 48.21% females). The majority of patients (47.32%) underwent a conservative treatment, while almost 68% had a very good postoperative healing at the 7 day postoperative recall. There was also a significant improvement of the values of glycated hemoglobin at both the three and the six months recall, with almost 2/3 of the patients presenting a normal gingival status. Conclusion : Periodontal disease has a negatively impact on diabetes control, and can worsen its complications, but periodical periodontal treatment improves glycemic status, the latter contributing further to better oral status and lower the incidence of complications.
