Dry mouth: Uncontrolled diabetes can decrease saliva (spit) ﬂow, resulting in dry mouth further lead to soreness, ulcers, infections and tooth decay.
Gum inﬂammation (gingivitis) and periodontitis: periodontal disease is a bacterial infection, people with uncontrolled diabetes might experience more frequent and more severe gum disease.
Poor healing of oral tissues: People with uncontrolled diabetes do not heal quickly after oral surgery or other dental procedures because blood ﬂow to the treatment site can be damaged.
Thrush: People with diabetes who frequently take antibiotics to ﬁght various infections are especially prone to developing a fungal infection of the mouth and tongue.
Burning mouth and/or tongue: This condition is caused by the presence of thrush.
