Connection Between Diabetes and Gum Disease
If you have gum disease and diabetes, you must make sure you carefully manage your diabetes. If your diabetes goes uncontrolled, it means that more of the sugars that bacteria thrive on will end up in your mouth. This can take untreated gum disease and cause it to quickly grow to be out of control.

If you have diabetes but don't have gum disease, it becomes extra important that you control your glucose levels. If your glucose levels regularly rise and fall in extremes, it can create the ideal situation for gum disease to flourish. By taking good care of your overall health, it also helps you keep your oral health in check.
