MERELLO L, Margarita  y  OLIVA M, Patricio. Obesity and its Relation to Periodontal Diseases: a Narrative Review. Int. J. Odontostomat. [online]. 2012, vol.6, n.2, pp.235-239. ISSN 0718-381X.

Obesity in Chile reaches approximately 63%, resulting in the development of diseases, some are well documented and other incipient information, such as oral, which is necessary to find evidence on the relationship between obesity and disease periodontal, considering that scored close to 100% in adults over 35 years. We performed a systematic literature search, which involves the use of search engines and specialized databases. Finally, we conducted a narrative of the results, which involves the standardization of the concepts. The analysis of results was chosen, due to the lack of experimental studies on the subject, however, it is methodologically possible to generate valid conclusions. There are studies on associations between nutrition and periodontal disease as an inflammatory disease, considering the impact of obesity in the modulation of the inflammatory response of the individual, causing a high risk of periodontal disease. The evidence demonstrates the existence of a relationship between both disorders, with a possible biological explanation, but there is a lack of experimental research.

Palabras clave : obesity; periodontal disease; nutrition.
