The Link Between Diabetes And Gum Disease

The relationship between diabetes and gum disease is a complex one. Each of these conditions can make the other worse which is why patients ought to seek treatment early. Here’s everything you should know.

Key takeaway:

–   Diabetes lowers the body’s immunity which can increase the risk of developing periodontal disease.

–   Gum disease can affect glucose levels which may ultimately lead to diabetes or worsen existing diabetes.

–   If untreated, gum disease can lead to uncontrolled blood sugar levels that would cause other serious health problems including heart disease, vision and kidney conditions.

–   Dry mouth can encourage the growth of plaque on your teeth which may cause gum disease.

Do you live with diabetes? Ask your dentist how you can best support your smile.
