Aim: To determine the prevalence of periodontitis in an urban population of Sri Lankans with type 2 diabetes (T2DM) and to compare the data with those from a population of adults without diabetes.
Methods: Demographic data and a diabetes profile were recorded for a population of urban Sri Lankan adults with T2DM including duration of diabetes, blood pressure; percentage glycosylated haemoglobin, fasting blood glucose level, total cholesterol; triglycerides, low- and high-density lipoproteins. The clinical examination comprised an oral soft tissue examination, full-mouth probing depths (PD), gingival recession (GR), clinical attachment levels and bleeding on probing (BoP).
Results: Two hundred and eighty-five individuals with T2DM and 72 controls were examined. 33.3% of T2DM patients were diagnosed with chronic periodontitis compared with 21.7% of controls (p50.077). Subjects with T2DM had significantly more sites with PDX4 and X5mm (po0.01), and higher mean GR and BoP scores (po0.01).
Conclusion: This urban Sri Lankan population of subjects with T2DM demonstrated a compromised periodontal status compared with non-diabetic controls.
