People withoften have irregular blood glucose levels and thus are at a higher risk of tooth problems and gum disease.
If you are living with diabetes, you need to pay particular attention to your oral health and dental care, as well as keeping your blood glucose levels in the target range.
Regular check-up and cleans are vital to ensure your oral health, especially your teeth and gums are healthy. This is because your dentist can rule out signs of gum disease or other concerns, even if you do not see any visible symptoms.
