What is the association between diabetes and oral health?
There are many ways that diabetes can potentially affect your oral health. Some studies show that the gum disease may be very difficult to manage and it can or may eliminate in patients with diabetes. When blood sugar levels are not properly controlled, some possible oral conditions may develop such as, periodontitis, tooth loss, thrush, fungal mouth infections and dry mouth. Recent evidence suggests that periodontitis may adversely affect a person with diabetes control their blood sugar levels.
