The Resource Library for the Integration of Oral Health and Medicine provides a centralized repository of relevant resources developed by a variety of professions in and around health care. This Library has been developed through the collaboration of the Harvard School of Dental Medicine (HSDM), the Center for the Integration of Primary Care and Oral Health (CIPCOH), and the HSDM Initiative to Integrate Oral Health and Medicine.

Percutaneous coronary angioplasty with stent implantation has been established as the main form of treatment of atherosclerosis. However, 16 to 44% of patients may evolve with stent restenosis. Periodontitis is an inflammatory condition associated with bacterial infection, that may lead to periodontal tissue destruction and tooth loss. This study aimed to evaluate the association between stent restenosis and periodontitis.
Dallaserra M, Morales A, Hussein N, et al. Periodontal Treatment Protocol for Decompensated Diabetes Patients. Frontiers in Oral Health. 2021. Publisher's VersionAbstract
Decompensated diabetes is associated with a higher prevalence and severity of periodontitis and poorer response to periodontal therapy. It is conceivable that periodontal therapy may cause systemic and local complications in this type of patients. The aim of the present study was to identify and describe the best available evidence for the treatment of periodontitis in decompensated diabetics.
