Teeth and diabetes

Teeth and diabetes

What do teeth and diabetes have in common?

Literature demonstrates how the presence of chronic inflammation of the gums can favor the onset of diabetes.

In many people with gum inflammation, this slowly turns into periodontitis, a situation that can lead to tooth loss.

It has also been shown that those who themselves suffer from diabetes are up to 3 times more likely than non-diabetics to develop periodontitis.

From this we can understand how the two pathologies have points in common.

Prevention is always the element that can provide the greatest benefits, both in the diagnostic and therapeutic phases.

All this must not be lacking in correct and constant oral hygiene carried out directly by the patient.

It should also not be omitted that many pathologies of the oral cavity are consequential or favored by the oral environment itself, so let's not underestimate our mouth!
