Diabetes and gum disease: a vicious circle

Being diabetic can be seriously reduce your mouth health.

Research shows that if you are diabetic you are more likely to experience severe gum disease. In fact, studies clearly show that your risk factor for suffering periodontitis is 3 times higher than a non-diabetic.

Evidence also shows that there is a two-way relationship between periodontal disease and diabetes. This has been named ‘the seesaw effect’; a phenomenon regularly found in diabetes.

So, diabetes-related gum disease makes it more difficult to control your glucose and periodontal disease can be a precursor for diabetes. This is called the ‘seesaw effect’.

Excess sugar in your saliva creates a perfect environment for harmful germ to develop in your mouth, leading to high levels of plaque.

This can lead to tooth decay, tooth loss and early gum disease, known as gingivitis.

High levels of sugar in your saliva can make gingivitis occur faster than it normally would. If left untreated gingivitis can lead to periodontitis – advanced gum disease.

And, because your natural healing mechanisms are impaired, it is more difficult for you to fight oral infections such as periodontitis.

In addition, a diabetic with poor oral health has a higher risk of developing organ failure and other systemic disorders such as cardiovascular disease, kidney disease and stroke.

On the positive side, evidence shows that controlling periodontal problems in diabetes can also help to control your blood glucose levels.

However, did you know that, even though you do control your blood glucose levels and maintain a healthy diet, you can have up to 4 times more glucose in your saliva than non-diabetics. This may be one of the main factors which causes gum disease in diabetes.

Slower healing processes and diabetic medication can also cause chronic inflammation and infection in your mouth, as well as the condition known as Xerostomia (Dry Mouth), experienced by some diabetics.

In addition, a diabetic with poor oral health has a higher risk of developing organ failure and other systemic disorders such as cardiovascular disease, kidney disease and stroke.

So, it makes sense to take special precautions to control gum disease from the very start.
