If you have diabetes it is important to take care of your oral health and see your dentist regularly. Studies show that there is a link between diabetes and gum disease or other oral infections that can create a cycle of disease.
1 – Infections in your mouth like gum disease can contribute to the onset or worsening of diabetes. They can also impact your ability to keep your blood sugar at healthy levels.
2 – High blood sugar caused by diabetes feeds the bacteria in your mouth putting you at a higher risk for periodontal gum disease, infections, cavities, and other dental problems.
To keep this dangerous cycle under control, it is important to take care of both your teeth and overall health:
Dental care is an important part of your diabetic self-care.
