The Effects of Full Mouth Disinfection on Insulin Sensitivity in Type 2 Diabetes with and without Chronic Periodontitis study identified the problem of the high periodontal disease prevalence amongst individuals with poorly controlled type 2 diabetes. The researchers found periodontal prevalence rates to be generally higher in diabetics than in those free of the systemic disease (as cited Srirangarajan, Setty, Satvanaravan, & Shetty S, 2016). The literature review can be found within column 2 on page 103, and columns 1 and 2 on page 104. 48 references were used, 48 of the 34 came from primary sources, while the remaining 14 came from secondary sources. Experiments were aimed “to evaluate the effect of full mouth disinfection (FMD) on insulin resistance in type 2 diabetics, and associated glycemic levels (Srirangarajan, et al., 2016).” The research fulfilled the purpose of finding systemic FMD health benefits for patients with type 2 diabetes to illustrate the GAP in literature between traditional periodontal treatments and glycemic control. The quantitative experiment illuminated glycemic, insulin resistance, and sensitivity levels in the presence and without the presence of periodontal disease. Treatments of SRP (control group), FMD (test group), chemotherapeutic modalities, and oral hygiene instruction were applied to participants to further understand the systemic implications of oral bacteria, and its’ effects on insulin resistance, and glycemic levels.
