The Prevalence of Periodontal Disease & Diabetes
Recent studies have shown that diabetes is a major risk factor for periodontitis, as those with the disease are about three times more susceptible to periodontitis. Diabetes can also increase the number of teeth affected by periodontitis and its severity. Additionally, the studies suggest that poor blood sugar control is strongly linked with an increased risk of developing periodontal disease.
