Obesity is a chronic condition influenced by several factors, including nutritional changes in the diet and sedentary lifestyles, predisposing one to suffering of various systemic diseases. It has been implicated as a significant risk factor for several medical conditions such as cardiovascular diseases, diabetes mellitus type 2, hypertension, cerebrovascular events, dyslipidemias, osteoarthritis, some types of cancer, and in recent years, several cross-sectional epidemiological and longitudinal studies suggest that obesity is associated with periodontal disease. In this study, the characterization of the periodontal condition of 159 adult students of the Southern Regional Complex of the BUAP was reported. The students were evaluated clinically and stomatologically by anthropometry (Size, Weight, BMI, ICC) and IHOS index. It was found that in the group of adults with overweight or obesity but with an average age between 18 and 19 years, there was no significant difference that correlates overweight or obesity with periodontal disease.

Key words: Obesity, BMI, IHOS, periodontitis.
