Get a Taste of the Troubling Link Between Diabetes and Teeth


Studies have shown that diabetes can put you in danger of dental health problems. Discover the connection and how to protect your smile.

The Truth about Diabetes and Teeth

According to dental care experts, diabetics have a greater chance of suffering from gum disease. Gingivitis is the mildest form, while the most serious is periodontal disease. Unfortunately, dentists find that diabetes and periodontal disease often go hand-in-hand.

Why Diabetes often Leads to Gum Disease

Research has repeatedly shown a direct connection between diabetes and oral health. The problem with diabetes and teeth comes from the body’s natural sugar called glucose, which is also in your saliva. With diabetes, it can be hard to control the amount of glucose in your blood, but when it gets very high, it can cause pain and infection, and creates a perfect breeding ground for bacteria to grow in your mouth. Then these bacteria blend with food to form the plaque that causes decay and gum disease.

Spot and Stop the Symptoms of Suffering

The best way to avoid major dental problems is by stopping them as soon as they start. This is especially true when it comes to diabetes and periodontal disease. If you’re diabetic, you need to frequently check your mouth for any dental concerns. The most obvious signs of a problem with diabetes and oral health are swollen, red, tender, or bleeding gums. If you have any cause for concern, go to your dentist immediately to find out if you need treatment.

Protection and Prevention for Problems with Diabetes and Oral Health

Along with watching for any changes in your mouth at home, you must go to your dentist for check-ups and cleanings at least twice a year. And keep your glucose level under control by following a healthy diet, exercising regularly, and taking your medication.
