The Dangerous Connection Between Diabetes and Oral Health

dca-blog-174-diabetes-and-dental-care

If you have diabetes, you must know about these research findings on the direct relationship between diabetes and periodontal disease.

The Facts Behind the Findings

Diabetics must be aware that studies show a higher incidence of serious gum disease in people with diabetes. This link between diabetes and oral health suggests that diabetics have a greater risk for gum disease, both the early stage called gingivitis and the more serious stage of periodontal disease.

A Duo of Dental Dangers

Further research into diabetes and teeth revealed a reciprocal relationship between diabetes and periodontal disease. In addition to people with diabetes being more susceptible to gum disease, having serious gum disease can complicate diabetes by making blood sugar harder to control.

Take Care of Your Teeth and Your Health

While these risks are very real, your health is in your hands. To protect yourself from complications with diabetes and teeth, dental experts advise the following health precautions:

  • Practice proper dental hygiene at home, such as brushing at least twice a day and flossing at least once a day.
  • Go to your dentist for checkups and cleanings twice a year. You may need to go more frequently if your have a history of diabetes and oral health problems.
  • If you have any dental concerns, see your dentist immediately.
  • Keep your blood glucose level under control.
  • Avoid smoking.
