The Cochrane Oral Health Group recently published Treatment of periodontal disease for glycaemic control in people with diabetes, a systematic review examining the relationship  between periodontal treatment and glycaemic control in diabetics.

The review, which included 7 Randomized Controlled Trials concluded there is evidence of improvement in metabolic control in people with diabetes, after treating periodontal disease.
