Obesity, Bariatric Surgery, Periodontal Disease, Osteoporosis.


Current epidemiological studies have showed a growing number of obese patients worldwide. New surgical treatments for obesity that can provide consistent weight loss and effective management of associated comorbidities have been increasingly investigated. The effects of bariatric surgery include long-term benefits such as lower blood glucose levels with good management of type 2 diabetes, hyperlipidemia, metabolic syndrome, reduced risk of coronary heart disease, better quality of life and improved life expectancy. However, bariatric surgery is a procedure that implies malabsorption of nutrients and can result in nutritional deficiencies, anemia, hypocalcemia, low absorption of vitamin D and hyperparathyroidism, causing decreased bone mineral density and increased risk of osteoporosis and may play a major role in the progression and severity of periodontal disease.
