Diabetes mellitus constitutes a risk factor of periodontal disease. Also the severity and extension of the periodontal damage is directly related to the diabetes mellitus control in those who suffer from it. In fact, the prevention of the periodontal disorders in the diabetic patient is the best treatment available at the present time; so that the knowledge and the permanent updating of the pathophysiological aspects in the correlation of both entities, are important to select and to carry out an early and appropriate therapy, not only to reduce the morbidity of the local infection, but also to influence indirectly in the general health. Taking into consideration these arguments, it was decided to make a comment on the topic.

Key words: diabetes mellitus, periodontal disease, pathophysiological aspects, oral microflora, vascular changes.
