People with diabetes often 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.

Diabetes and common oral health problems

  • periodontal (gum) disease
  • gum abscesses
  • tooth decay
  • fungal infections, such as thrush (also known as candidiasis)
  • lichen planus (an inflammatory, autoimmune skin condition)
  • mouth ulcers

Symptoms of gum disease

  • red, swollen, tender, bleeding gums
  • a bad taste or bad breath
  • loose teeth or spaces opening up between your teeth.

Please book an appointment immediately if you notice any signs and symptoms of gum disease.

Diabetes and tooth decay

With increased blood glucose levels, diabetics may have more glucose in their saliva and more prone to plaque on their teeth.

Dental plaque can be removed by cleaning your teeth and gums twice daily with a soft toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste. If plaque is left, it can turn into hard calculus and cause tooth decay and cavities

Taking adequate care  of your teeth prevents cavities and gum disease.
