Did you know you’re most prone to gum disease if you have diabetes?
With millions of bacteria invading your gums a healthy individual is able to fight most of the bacteria. However, fluctuations and unstable blood sugar result in an increased likelihood of developing infections and those with diabetes are less likely to be able to fight the bacteria invading their gums. Body functions are all interconnected. If you develop gum disease, it is crucial that you treat it as soon as possible as gum disease may cause blood sugar to rise.
Make sure you visit your dentist regularly to avoid further complications and don’t forget to brush and floss daily.
