Background. The impact of hyperglycemia on dental implant
therapy remains unclear. In this systematic review and meta-analysis, the
authors compared the rates of implant failure and periimplant bleeding on
probing (BOP), probing depth (PD), and peri-implant bone
loss (PIBL) among patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus and nondiabetic patients.
The authors performed subgroup analyses based on glycemic level to evaluate whether patients with
higher glycemic levels were more prone to peri-implant inflammation.Keywords. Type 2 diabetes mellitus; dental implant failure;
