Diabetic patients with poorly controlled diabetes are at a greater risk of being exposed to dental issues.
The more likely disease is related to the gums as in diabetes the blood supply to the gums gets reduced and it looses its strength. In diabetic patients, high blood sugar can cause dry mouth and due to the reduction of saliva it works as the catalyst for bacteria multiplication in the mouth.

(ii)Sore gums, on touch pain a lot.
Take good care of the gums and teeth, brush and floss twice a day without skipping a day.
