It is also linked to the rest of your body, from your arteries to your heart and more. People with diabetes have an increased risk for infection, including gum disease. Expectant mothers should have a periodontal examination from their dentist, as up to 18% of cases of preterm, low birth weight babies may be linked to oral infections. Take a look at this infographic from your Sanford and Lake Mary dentist to see why your dental health matters for more than your mouth.
