Have you heard the latest news about periodontal disease and diabetes? Learn about the link between these serious health conditions to protect yourself and your health.

The Connection Between Diabetes and Oral Health

Did you know that almost one-quarter of people with diabetes have the advanced form of gum disease called periodontal disease? If you’re diabetic, you need to be aware of the dental effects of having both periodontal disease and diabetes. The most common include:

  • Dry mouth, due to less saliva and certain medications
  • Higher risk of cavities due to less saliva
  • Swollen or bleeding gums, which are an early sign of gum disease
  • Greater risk of oral infections

The Reciprocal Risk

Studies have found a mutual relationship between periodontal disease and diabetes. In addition to diabetics having a much higher risk of serious gum disease, having periodontal disease causes blood sugar to rise and makes diabetes harder to control. As a result, each disease worsens the other and causes major problems with diabetes and oral health.

Be Proactive about Protecting Your Health

Knowing the real-life risks with diabetes and teeth, it’s important to take care of your dental and overall health. Follow these simple steps to help prevent any problems:

  • Try to control your blood sugar levels.
  • Take all of your diabetes-related medications.
  • Eat a healthy diet.
  • Don’t smoke.
  • Maintain good dental habits at home, including brushing twice a day and flossing daily.
  • Visit your dentist for checkups and cleanings at least twice a year. If you have a history of diabetes and teeth problems, you may need to go more often.
