Diabetics Benefit From Gum Treatment

A discovery has recently been made by researchers that conclude there is a correlation in gum disease and other areas of the body that seemed questionable in the past. One example is the disease periodontitis attributing to increased risk of stroke or heart disease. Periodontitis is an infection in the mouth that attacks the bones and ligaments that are the foundation for the teeth.

Another important discovery that makes an exceptional case for dealing with gum disease is: diabetics who receive treatment for periodontal disease experience lower insulin levels. Suggestions by the researchers claim the correlation is based on changes that are chemical based bacterial infections in the mouth that result in swelling or inflammation which in turn triggers changes in chemicals in the body that lessen the efficiency of insulin produced by the body. Therefore, controlling blood sugar may be more difficult for diabetics that have periodontal disease.

Dental health and overall health is put at risk with the onset of gum disease.
