Severe gum disease is an early sign of diabetes

Dental screening of individuals with severe gum disease could lead to type 2 diabetes being diagnosed earlier.

Key takeaways:

– Screening people at checkups could help identify those with pre-diabetes.

– The benefits would be two-fold as gum disease is difficult to manage in patients with poorly controlled diabetes.
