People with diabetes have more risks of having ‪gum disease than people without diabetes. Both diseases are thought to share a common pathogenesis that involves an enhanced inflammatory response that can be observed at the local and systemic level. If you are a diabetic, watch out for signs and symptoms of gum disease such as red, swollen and/or bleeding gums. If you sense any irritation or inflammation in your gums, then make an appointment with us at ‪‎Acharya Dental‬ to get a thorough examination.
