Abstract OBJECTIVE: We investigated the association between glycemic control of type 2 diabetes mellitus (type 2 DM) and severe periodontal disease in the US adult population ages 45 years and older. METHODS: Data on 4343 persons ages 45-90 years from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Study III were analyzed using weighted multivariable logistic regression. Severe periodontal disease was defined as 2 + sites with 6 + mm loss of attachment and at least one site with probing pocket depth of 5 + mm. Individuals with fasting plasma glucose > 126 mg/dL were classified as having diabetes; those with poorly controlled diabetes (PCDM) had glycosylated hemoglobin > 9\% and those with better-controlled diabetes (BCDM) had glycosylated hemoglobin This article was published in Community Dent Oral Epidemiol and referenced in Dental Implants and Dentures: Open Access
