A Preliminary Investigation of Periodontal Disease and Diabetes in Trinidad

Issue: 
Pages: 
86–90
Synopsis: 
A preliminary report on the dental evaluation of diabetic patients suggests that periodontal disease may be quite prevalent in diabetic patients in Trinidad. Collaborative patient care between medical and dental practitioners should form part of the routine management of diabetic patients.

ABSTRACT

Objectives: To describe periodontal disease status in diabetic patients in Trinidad.

Method: A cross-sectional study was conducted. Patients attending a tertiary referral centre for diabetes at an out-patient clinic were invited to undergo oral examinations. The basic periodontal examination (BPE) was used to assess periodontal disease status.
