FCT Archive (Health) Diabetes

This research is to assess the number of missing teeth and to examine the relationship between age and tooth-loss in diabetic patients.The mean number of missing teeth in the diabetic patient and the control increased gradually as patients grew older but tooth loss was more pronounced in the diabetics. The result here agrees with results in other parts of Nigeria and worldwide. Within the limitations of this study, tooth loss is more in diabetic patients than nondiabetics and increases more in diabetics as both groups grow older.
