Can anyone tell me if there is a relation between Type 2 and gum disease? I have 2 teeth that are turning and I know that is a sign of gum disease. I am deathly afraid of dentists there for I don't go nearly as often as I should. Any info anyone can give me about the connection of the 2(diabetes and gum disease) would be so great.

GINGIVITIS IS THE LACK OF BLOOD FLOW THRU THE GUMS OR TO SOFT OF GUM AN IT STARTS TO REDUCE AN THEN BLEED AN YOU NEED TO MASSAGE ALL OF THE GUM, TO KEEP THE BLOOD MOVING AN THE GUM SOLID. ITS JUST A HUNK OF FLESH THAT NEEDS TO BE FEED,WHEN ITS SOFT NO BLOOD FLOWS THRU AN NO FEED.SO BRUSH ALL OVER AN WHEN YOU CAN STICK A FINGER IN AN RUB AWAY…I KNOW BECAUSE I LOST MY TEETH BECAUSE OF IT..

IT MEANS GET THE BLOOD FLOWING TO AREAS THAT ARE NOT GETTING ENOUGH BLOOD FLOW. WHEN YOU SEE LITTLE RIDGES AT THE GUM LINE THEN YOU ARE STARTING TO LOSE THE GUM. BY RUBBING YOUR FINGERS ON THE GUMS,THE BLOOD FLOWS, THEN THE BODY WILL HELP KEEP THE GERMS AT THE LOWEST LEVEL, AN THE SWELLING DOWN.

Yes there is a link. Even in getting high numbers could be a result of teeth problems. I use Colgate Total toothpaste it is recommended by the ADA and I also use Listering mouthwash. But if you see bleeding of your gums when you brush it could be signs of gingivitis and you will need to go to dentist. These days some dentist have sedation dentistry which will make it alot less painful. check that out. Here in Tennessee we have a place that is like a spa setting for a dentist. My insurance does not pay for it but I thought it sound great. Massages and relaxation therapy while you get your teeth done.

And there is an article in the news section on it posted by Dance Hawk. Both of these should give you some insight.

I have never heard that a truning tooth equated gum diesase. I know that our teeth shift thru our lifetimes, and usually drift forward. This could be a cause too. Dentists are not really that bad, but I guess years of braces cured me of any fears I had. LOL

They will be able to tell you the most. The x-ray will show what is going on and a cleaning will reveal alternate causes. Buck up girlie...you gotta go. Just find a happy place. Maybe matress surfing. LOL!!
