Introduction: Periodontitis is related to diabetes mellitus. However, whether periodontal therapy can affect glycemic control remains unclear. This study aims to evaluate the effects of scaling and root planing (SRP) on the glycemic control of patients with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM). Materials and Methods: 100 T2DM patients with periodontal disease were enrolled in the study. The test group was treated with scaling and root planing (SRP); the control group received oral hygiene instructions. Blood was collected at baseline and 5 months later for HbA1c levels. Results: Baseline mean? SD HbA1c for the test and control groups were 6.68 ?1.22and 6.54 ?1.11%, respectively. Significant difference in HbA1c reductions was found between test and control groups at 5 months. Conclusions: Statistically significant differences were found in the changes of HbA1c levels between test and control groups.
