Type 2 Diabetes is a non-curable multi system disease that affect around 9% of the world population. Therefore, the incidence for the general dentist to come across a diabetic patient is very high. The medical treatment in diabetes is graded according to the severity of the disease. In the last decade new drugs and treatment modalities were developed. The implication of diabetes and its complications in the oral cavity are significant. Beside the emergency events that might take place in a diabetic patient, one must take under consideration the influence of the dental treatment on the glycemic control and vis-a-vis the influence of the glycemic control on the oral tissue health and response for treatment.
