If you have diabetes, you are at greater risk of developing some oral health problems. The most common oral health problems associated with diabetes are gum disease, fungal infections, infection and delayed healing. Talk to your dentist to ensure you are using the best options to manage your dental care and diabetes. By controlling your blood glucose, brushing and flossing every day, and visiting a dentist regularly, you can help prevent serious problems in your mouth.
