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; peri-implant parameters.
