Introduction and Aim: The understanding of the etiology and pathogenesis of periodontal diseases and their chronic, inflammatory and infectious nature suggests that these infections may influence events elsewhere in the body. Poorly controlled diabetes is a well-recognized risk factor for developing periodontal disease. There is also ample evidence that periodontal disease can worsen a patient's glycemic control and proper management of periodontal disease can improve the same. However, very few have determined effect of periodontitis on glycemic control, of non-diabetic population and concluded that untreated periodontitis pose a risk of pre-diabetes in systemically healthy individuals. The purpose of this study is to estimate and compare the HbA1c levels in non-diabetic subjects with periodontitis and periodontally healthy controls.
