Having diabetes can increase your risk of oral problems such as gum disease. Slower healing, fungal infections, dry mouth and cavities are also associated with diabetes. Osteoporosis can affect oral health too, increasing the risk of bone loss in your jaw, which can loosen the teeth.
The good news is that good dental hygiene can help prevent these problems. So if you have either condition, take special care of your teeth and gums. If you have osteoporosis, you may also want to check you are getting enough calcium and vitamin D.
