Type 2 diabetes increases risk for tooth loss
For the analysis, researchers sought relevant studies in international databases — including Scopus, PubMed, ProQuest, Web of Science, Cochrane Library and Google Scholar search engine — until February 2022.

In all, 22 studies involving 677,532 participants were included. Results indicated that type 2 diabetes elevated the risk for tooth loss, with an unadjusted OR of 1.87 (95% CI, 1.62-2.13; P < .001) and an adjusted OR of 1.2 (95% CI, 1.1-1.3; P < .001).

In a subgroup analysis based on study design for adjusted OR, researchers found a significant association between type 2 diabetes and tooth loss in the cohort study (OR = 1.29; 95% CI, 1.07-1.51), the cross sectional study (OR = 1.15; 95% CI, 1.06-1.23) and the case control study (OR = 5.1; 95% CI, 1.01-9.18). The study found an association between type 2 diabetes and an increased risk for tooth loss.
