Current research also suggests that the relationship between severe gum disease and diabetes is two-way phenomena. Not only are people with diabetes more susceptible to serious gum disease, but serious gum disease may have the potential to affect blood glucose control and contribute to the progression of diabetes. Research suggests that people with diabetes are at higher risk for oral health problems, such as gingivitis and periodontitis. People with diabetes are at an increased risk for serious gum disease because they are generally more susceptible to bacterial infection, and have a decreased ability to fight bacteria that invade the gums.
The Surgeon General’s Report on Oral Health states that good oral health is integral to general health. Schedule your dentist’s appointment regularly in order to avoid severe complication related to oral health.
