Introduction: Periodontal disease is a common infection-induced inflammatory disease among individuals suffering from diabetes mellitus. The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of non surgical periodontal therapy on HbA1c value in type 2 diabetes mellitus patients. Materials &amp; Methods: In this clinical trial study, approved by ethical committee of Tehran Shahed University of Medical Sciences, 20 patients with poorly controlled type 2 diabetes mellitus and chronic periodontitis were selected from Yazd diabetes center and received mechanical periodontal treatment (oral hygiene instruction, full mouth scaling and root planing). At base line and after 3 months, the glycated hemoglobin values (HbA1c), fasting blood sugar and clinical periodontal parameters (plaque index, gingival index, probing depth, percent of sites with probing depth≥4 mm, and percent of sites with probing depth≥6 mm were recorded. Paired t-test was used for data analysis. Results: After treatment, all patients showed clinical improvement in periodontal status (P<0.001). The HbA1c value reduced significantly after the 3 months of observation period (P<0.001). Conclusion: The results of our study showed that non surgical periodontal treatment is associated with reduction in glycated hemoglobin level in type 2 diabetic patients. Control of periodontal infection as an important part of the overall management of diabetes mellitus patients, is recommended.
