Description

There has been an explosion in research into possible associations between periodontitis and various systemic diseases and conditions. For the practicing Dental Professional, making rational decisions for patient management can be very difficult with so much information in the literature. In November 2012, a workshop was jointly held by the American Academy of Periodontology and the European Federation of Periodontology. Four working groups reviewed the evidence for associations between Periodontitis and Diabetes, Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease, Adverse Pregnancy Outcomes and Systemic diseases. The output of these working groups was a summary of the evidence to date, along with recommendations for the Dental Professional, Medical Professional and Patient.
