GUM DISEASE CAN RAISE YOUR ~BLOOD SUGAR LEVEL

Gums appear red, swollen, tender and easily bleed.




Periodontitis

Gingivitis when untreated leads to Periodontitis. Gums move away from the

teeth and teeth become loose.


Diabetic patients are 4-3 times more at risk of developing gum disease as

they have more glucose in their saliva and dry mouth which favors the buildup of plaque on the surface of teeth.


Preventing and treating Gingivitis and Periodontitis with regular dental

cleaning can help to control your blood sugar level also.
