Afternoon doctor, is there a relationship between toothache with high blood sugar levels and high blood pressure huh? Then, is there a way to reduce tooth pain as first aid? Thank you, doctor
Hello Dany Safa
Diabetes is an abnormality of high blood sugar levels that can cause several diseases of the mouth such as sores on the edge of the mouth, burning sensation in the mouth or tongue, increased risk of cavities, swelling of the gums, or infection of the tissues around the teeth (periodontitis). Pain from pain teeth can cause stress. This can indeed make an increase in blood pressure.
High blood pressure and uncontrolled sugar levels can cause several complications such as stroke, heart attack, and damage to other body organs (kidneys, eyes, to reproductive organs). Dental diseases that are not treated can also cause heart disease such as endocarditis. If you do have a history of diabetes or high blood pressure, you should consult with a specialist in internal medicine and for dental problems can consult with a dentist. Doctors require physical examination, laboratory examinations and other supporting examinations and provide drugs or therapies according to your condition.
