Tooth eruption & Diabetes and periodontitis: The two way relationship - Videos uploaded on YouTube
Eruption is the process of tooth movement from its developmental position in the jaws to a functional position in the oral cavity and involves movement of the tooth through the bone and oral mucosa to reach the occlusal plane.
These movements can be divided into three phases called, pre-eruptive, eruptive and post-eruptive phases.
Diabetes and periodontitis: The two way relationship
Periodontitis refers to the inflammation of the supporting periodontal tissues surrounding the tooth.
Chronic periodontitis has a slow rate of progression and most commonly affects adults and sometimes even children and adolescents.
Its relation with diabetes mellitus has been researched for many years and is now well established that hyperglycaemia could influence progression of periodontal disease.
There is also a growing body of evidence implicating chronic periodontitis in affecting glycaemic control and aggravating complications in diabetes.
