ABSTRACT Metabolic syndrome is a complex medical disorder characterized by visceral fat-type obesity involving hypertension, and abnormal glucose and lipid metabolism. The objective of this study was to investigate the relationship between periodontal disease and components of metabolic syndrome (obesity, lipid abnormality, hypertension, and hyperglycemia) in industrial workers of a single company in Tokyo, Japan.
The study subjects consisted of 2478 adult employees (2028 men and 450 women; mean age: 43.3 years). The association between the presence of periodontal pockets and components of metabolic syndrome was investigated cross-sectionally using multiple logistic regression analysis, odds ratios (ORs), and 95 percent confidence intervals (CIs).
Body mass index, blood pressure, triglycerides, fasting blood glucose, and hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) were significantly elevated (P < 0.05) in patients with periodontal pockets of 4 mm or more. We found that the OR of the presence of periodontal pockets adjusted for age, gender, and smoking habit was 1.8 (96 percent CI = 1.4-2.3) when the subjects with two positive components and without positive component were compared. And it was 2.4 (96 percent CI = 1.7-2.7) when the subjects with three or four positive components and without positive component were compared.
Our findings suggest an association between periodontal disease and metabolic syndrome in Japanese workers between the ages of 20 and 60 years.

    ABSTRACT: In the next few years there will be a great increase in the percentage of the population aged over 65. Not only will they have more teeth than previous generations, but also a large number of implants. The increase in age is accompanied by an increase in the prevalence and incidence of periodontal diseases. In addition, there is a decrease in manual dexterity and an increase in co-morbidity and medications affecting the oral cavity. Dental care in aged care facilities can be poor and access to dental professionals difficult. This article discusses these issues. © 2015 Australian Dental Association.

    ABSTRACT: As taxas de prevalência e de incidência referentes à obesidade têm se tornado alarmantes, tanto em adultos como em crianças. O acúmulo excessivo de gordura no organismo pode acarretar prejuízos à saúde dos indiví-duos. Objetivo: o presente estudo tem como objetivo apresentar uma revisão de literatura sobre a interação da obesidade com a saúde bucal por meio de um es-tudo ordenado em periódicos de circulação nacional e internacional. Materiais e método: foram encontrados 514 estudos, dentre os quais, foram selecionados 18 artigos, com base nos seguintes critérios: época de pu-blicação, tema adequado ao proposto neste trabalho, ideias claras, objetivas e condizentes com o título do estudo. Resultados: os estudos selecionados mostraram associações entre doença periodontal e obesidade. Já em relação aos trabalhos que associavam cárie dental e obesidade, houve algumas divergências, estando es-tas em minoria. Conclusão: conclui-se que os pacientes obesos necessitam de atenção em saúde bucal, espe-cialmente em relação à prevenção da doença perio-dontal e cárie dentária. Palavras-chave: Saúde bucal. Obesidade. Periodontite. Cárie dentária.

    ABSTRACT: The prevalence of metabolic syndrome (MetS) increases even in adolescents. The evidence that MetS is associated with the periodontal diseases in adolescent has been understudied. Therefore, our aim was to assess the association between MetS parameters and gingivitis in adolescents. A total of 941 participants (590 boys, 351 girls), aged 12-18 years was selected from the Fourth Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, a cross-sectional and nationally representative survey, who have had information on waist circumference, blood pressure, serum triglyceride, high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, and the fasting blood sugar and community periodontal Index (CPI). The number of positive parameters of MetS showed significant positive correlation with gingivitis; adjusted and crude ORs with one positive parameters of MetS were 1.92(95% CI: 1.21-3.04) and 1.88(95% CI: 1.28-2.76), respectively. And adjusted OR with three or more positive parameters of MetS was 3.29 (95% CI: 1.24-8.71). Among five parameters of MetS, Low HDL-cholesterol showed significant association with gingivitis (crude OR 2.12, 95% CI 1.20-3.73; adjusted OR 1.96, 95% CI 1.24-3.12). Having more positive parameters of MetS and positive HDL-cholesterol parameter had an independent relationship with the prevalence of gingivitis, which may be determinants for the future periodontal diseases even in adolescents This article is protected by copyright.
