Dental treatment and diabetes mellitus
Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a systemic disease, which affects general health. There are also many side effects on the oral health. Dental practitioners have to be aware of the concomitant oral manifestations in diabetic patients in order to provide accurate dental and surgical treatment. It is important to treat diabetic patients properly and on time, because untreated oral infection may lead to poor glycemic control on one hand, and on the other hand, undetected diabetes mellitus leads to failure in dental treatment.
