November is Diabetes Awareness Month – What you should know about diabetes and oral health

November is Diabetes Awareness Month. Among the many health risks associated with diabetes, did you know there is a 2-way street that connects diabetes and oral health?

People with diabetes are more likely to get gum disease. You’re especially at risk for gum disease if your diabetes isn’t well controlled. Diabetes can also cause dry mouth, which can lead to soreness, infections, and cavities.

Gum disease can make diabetes harder to manage. Severe gum disease can increase blood sugar (glucose) levels and make complications related to diabetes worse.

To keep your mouth, teeth and gums healthy you should:
Brush twice a day. Use a toothpaste with the American Dental Association (ADA) seal.
Floss daily. You can use a floss pick if you find it easier.
See your dentist. Get regular cleanings and checkups.
