❯ Diabetes & Oral Health

One of the most frequent complains from patients with diabetes is shaking teeth, and often they end up losing quite a few teeth from the periodontal (gum) disease that causes their teeth to shake. Because diabetes reduces the body’s resistance to infection, the gums are highly likely to become infected. Bleeding gums, recession, bone loss and eventual shaking teeth are signs of this progressive disease, for if not treated it will get worse and lead to the loss of the teeth.
