Periodontal diseases are infectious-inflammatory pathologies that can increase the risk of onset and/or progression of systemic conditions such as obesity, diabetes mellitus and cardiovascular disease. Objective.  To identify the association of periodontal disease with systemic diseases. Materials and Methods. The research was descriptive with a qualitative and cross-sectional approach, the databases used were Science Source, Medigraphic, Google Scholar, PubMed and Scielo, using inclusion and exclusion criteria 21 articles were chosen. Results. Of the articles, most demonstrate that there is a relationship between periodontal disease and systemic diseases such as obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Conclusions. The relationship of periodontal disease with systemic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes mellitus and obesity is due to the fact that the periodontal inflammatory response leads to a poorly regulated immune response generating susceptibility to contract other diseases.
