As a diabetic your sugar-saturated saliva constantly bathes your teeth and gums providing nourishment for harmful germs which can help plaque to develop.
High levels of plaque can lead to tooth decay, tooth loss and early gum disease, known as gingivitis. Gingivitis is the leading cause of tooth loss. If left untreated gingivitis can lead to periodontitis – advanced gum disease. These high levels of sugar in your saliva can make gingivitis occur faster than it normally would.
So, no matter how careful you are about avoiding sugary foods or drinks, if you have type 1 or type 2 diabetes you are very prone to developing tooth decay and gum disease. And, as a diabetic your natural healing mechanisms are impaired, it is more difficult for you to fight oral infections such as periodontitis.
