Even though I have been type 1 diabetic for over 37 years, I didn't realize that diabetics can have problems with their teeth (actually their gums) until a few years ago when my daughter brought up that a teacher of her's has teeth problems because of her diabetes.
I don't think I have ever seen the topic brought up in here either, but maybe I missed it.
A few weeks ago I had a dentist appointment and he was nicely impressed at how good my teeth (and gums) were because occasionally he sees problems with diabetics.
So (if you feel like talking about it) . . . How's your teeth ? Smile :)
