If you are diabetic, surely you have heard about the connection between diabetes complications and gum disease complications. In fact, current research suggests 95% of diabetics have periodontal (gum) disease. The statistics are the same for Type 1 and Type 2 diabetics. Diabetes exacerbates gum disease, and gum disease makes it impossible to control blood sugar in diabetics.
