People with diabetes are more likely to have gum disease, especially if blood sugar levels are managed poorly. Those with diabetes have higher glucose levels which lends itself to greater incidence of bacteria, inflammation and blood vessel issues that restrict certain nutrients that your gums need.

Studies show a strong interrelationship between diabetes and periodontal disease. Treating any periodontal infection will improve your diabetic situation.

Swollen, tender, or bleeding gums may be indications that your diabetes are affecting your gums. Contact your dentist if you notice these problems.
