Did you know that people with diabetes are more susceptible to the development of gum disease than those who do not have diabetes? Additionally, oral infections tend to be more severe in people with diabetes than in those who don’t have it.

Diabetes is a serious problem. It lowers the body’s ability to fight infection. Because of this, the gums are at risk for inflammation caused by the presence of bacteria in plaque. Plaque is that yucky sticky film that accumulates on teeth both above and below the gum line.

If you suffer from diabetes, there are ways you can build up your immune system. First of all, keep your blood sugar well-regulated. This one of the best things you can do for your body! Additionally, proper diet and exercise are key components in your arsenal against health problems. This will help keep your body strong and the immune system functioning optimally, which helps fight against inflammation.

Finally, beside regular brushing and flossing, brush your tongue regularly!  This step is crucial.  This helps reduce the bacteria and plaque that contributes to gum disease and inflammation.
