The study shows the impact of diabetes on dental health

A recent medical study estimated that people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes are more prone to tooth decay than others because of the low strength and durability of the hard material and enamel under the enamel that gives structure to the teeth.

Researchers with type 1 diabetes tested 35 mice with the disease and used the Vickers microhardness tester to compare the teeth of 35 healthy mice at 28 weeks. Although both groups started with identical teeth, enamel developed significantly after 12 weeks in diabetic mice, and the gap continued to expand throughout the study period. According to the “Science Daily” there were statistically significant differences in dentin hardness at 28 weeks.

“We have long been seeing more cavities and tooth loss in people with diabetes, and we have known for a long time that treatments like fillings do not last long for such patients, but we do not know why,” he said. Ali Zakiri, Associate Professor of Restorative Dentistry at Rudders College of Dentistry. Exactly. “

This study presents the multi-year effort of many researchers to understand how diabetes affects dental health and to develop treatments to combat its negative impact. Previous studies have shown that both types of diabetes have significantly higher rates of oral health problems in the teeth and the soft tissues around them.

“This is a particular focus of our focus as the number of people with diabetes continues to grow rapidly,” Zagri said. “There is a great need for therapies that allow patients to maintain their dental health, but this is not an important part of the research.”
