Data on 448 survey respondents showed those with type 1 diabetes had the lowest number of decayed, missing or filled teeth, while such markers were intermediate in those without diabetes and highest among type 2 diabetes patients. The German researchers also found periodontitis rates were 65% in those with type 1 diabetes, 85% in healthy controls and 90% in those with type 2 diabetes. The results were published in the European Journal of Medical Research.
