Abstract

Aim: To explore the influence of obesity/overweight on development and treatment outcome of periodontal diseases (PD), and to explore possible mechanisms of interaction between obesity and PD.

Method: A literature search was conducted using the PubMed and Go Pubmed databases.

Conclusion: Obesity and PD can exert similar pathogenic effects via common pathways, and can influence each other bidirectionally. Elucidating the relationship between obesity and PD allows for the development of care guidelines and recommendations for clinicians and the public.
