Diabetes and Periodontal Disease – The Dangerous Dental Duo

If you’re one of the almost 30 million Americans who have diabetes, you must know about the link between diabetes and periodontal disease. Learn about these facts and findings, plus how to protect your dental health.

The Reason for the Risk

According to recent research, there is a greater prevalence of gum disease among people with diabetes. This link between diabetes and oral health suggests that people with diabetes are at higher risk for both the early stage of gum disease called gingivitis, as well as the advanced stage called periodontal disease.

Double the Dental Danger

As if those findings on diabetes and teeth weren’t frightening enough, additional research shows that the relationship between diabetes and periodontal disease works both ways. First, people with diabetes are more vulnerable to gum disease. Secondly, having severe gum disease can make it harder to control your blood sugar, which worsens your diabetes.

Save Your Smile and Your Life

To protect yourself from complications with diabetes and teeth, dental experts recommend taking the following steps:

  • Keep your blood glucose level under control.
  • Practice good oral hygiene at home, such as brushing twice a day and flossing daily.
  • Visit your dentist for checkups and cleanings at least twice a year. You may need to go more frequently if your have a history of diabetes and oral health problems.
  • Don’t smoke.
  • If you have any dental concerns, see your dentist immediately.
