Diabetes and periodontal disease: know the risks here.

The periodontal disease is always, always an alarming condition. It’s an inflammatory process of the tissue that supports the teeth, such as the bone and the gums. But patients who have Diabetes mellitus should be even more aware of their oral health, because they have a greater risk of developing it.
