Teniendo en cuenta los resultados de los estudios previos, Casarin y colaboradores (38) compararon la microbiota subgingival de los pacientes diabeticos y no diabeticos con periodontitis en una poblacion brasilera y encontraron diferencias significativas entre los grupos, donde los generos Aggregatibacter, Neisseria, Gemella, Eikenella, Selenomonas, Actinomyces, Capnocytophaga, Fusobacterium, Veillonella y Streptococcus fueron mas frecuentes en los pacientes diabeticos mientras que hubo bajos porcentajes de los generos Porphyromonas, Filifactor, Eubacterium, Synergistetes, Tannerella y Treponema.
