What is diabetes effects on bacteria?

Spirochetes increase.

-Cytokines, monocytes, and macrophages increase.
-Connective tissue synthesis reduces, and ROS damage cells.


How does diabetes effect periodontal treatment?

*If they are stable, effects are the same as non-diabetics.
-Treat early
-Avoid hypoglycemia
-May need to change insulin
-Know what to do in case of emergencies.


What are the effects of pregnancy on periodontitis?

-Estrogen increases collagen metabolisms.

No! It only exacerbates the already present disease.


What is the effect on microbiota during pregnancy?

-No effect on plaque accumulation.
-Increased levels of pathogens in deep pockets and colonization of pathogens in shallow pockets.
