People with diabetes frequently have problems with their teeth and gums, especially when they have poor glycemic control. The higher the blood glucose, the greater the risk for developing periodontal disease. American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) people with diabetes have two to three times more advanced periodontal disease than people who do not have diabetes.
