Abstract

In global terms, periodontitis is the leading cause of tooth loss, and causes serious aesthetic and functional problems. There are numerous scientific evidence that power periopathogenic microorganisms may have influence on some systemic conditions and diseases. If we add the fact that periimplantitis are caused by identical periopathogenes, management or effective identification and elimination of periodontal inflammation set as imperative in successful periodontal treatment and possible complications locally or systemic, as well as resistance and lifetime of the implants. As a method for quantifying and classification of bacterial species are recommended monitoring of the bacterial micro flora through PCR (polymerase chain reaction) technique. Laser therapy as a supplementary method to classic treatment is strongly emphasized as a new therapeutic option that uses the photo-thermal effect to fight bacterial infection. Air flow - an original method that uses water, air and powder help to destroy the biofilm and remove plaque. Oral application of LAD (Light activated disinfection) therapy influence nascent oxygen breaks down the interaction in biofilm and makes the microorganisms more sensitive to further damage. Finally, the role and use of probiotics as a link between the beneficial oral bacteria species and inflammation

Abstract

Women with gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) have an increased lifetime risk of developing type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). GDM has a substantial impact on maternal and foetal short and long-term health. Risk factors for GDM may be genetic or nongenetic and have been analysed in numerous studies. Researches in recent years allowed the identification of other risk factors for GDM except for those already known. Knowledge and identification of all risk factors for GDM allows the elaboration of a prevention strategy of T2DM, it may influence the screening, diagnosis, and, subsequently, treatment modalities for this disease.
