If you’re diabetic, you can’t afford to ignore the latest research on diabetes and oral health problems. Learn about your risk and how to protect your health.

A Look at the Link Between Diabetes and Oral Health

If you’re diabetic, you need to know that research has shown a reciprocal relationship between periodontal disease and diabetes. Along with diabetics having a greater chance of developing the severe form of gum disease called periodontal disease, merely having periodontal disease makes blood sugar rise and makes it more difficult to control. As a result, each disease worsens the other and causes major problems with both diabetes and oral health.

A Mutual Menace

Since 22 percent of people with diabetes have periodontal disease, this relationship appears to be very real. If you have diabetes, it’s vital to be aware of the problems that come with having both periodontal disease and diabetes. The most frequent include:

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

Save Your Life and Your Smile

Now that you know about the potential for problems with diabetes and teeth, it’s important to protect your health in every way. To help you take control of your diabetes and oral health, follow these six steps:

  1. Control your blood sugar levels.
  2. Be sure to take all of your diabetes-related medications.
  3. Eat a healthy diet.
  4. Avoid or stop smoking.
  5. Maintain good dental habits at home, including brushing twice a day and flossing daily.
  6. 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.
