There is evidence that periodontal disease is common globally and poor oral health may be associated with cardiovascular disease (CVDs) and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) [1-4]. The exact pathogenesis and behavioral risk factors responsible for increased risk of morbidity and mortality are not well understood [1-4]. Apart from poor dental and oral health [1, 2], lack of mastication of foods may also contribute to a greater risk of cardio-metabolic diseases (CMDs) [3-6]. However, such relationship has not been a major focus in CVDs and T2DM. This article aims to highlight the growing evidence linking periodontal diseases to CMDs, including patho-physiologic mechanisms and coexistent risk factors.
