Abstract: Diabetes is linked to tooth loss primarily because people with diabetes are more susceptible to periodontal disease. Periodontal diseases are infections, inflammations, and loss of tissue in the gums and other tooth-supporting structures such as bone. Hence based on the literature findings of the prevalence of tooth loss in diabetic patients the current observational study was planned. The aim of the present study is to find out the demographic details of and number of missing tooth’s in the diabetic patients. The current retrospective study was planned in Anugrah Narayan Magadh Medical College and Hospital on total 100 patients were enrolled in the present study. The 50 patients were divided in the patients suffered from diabetes and 50 patients were considered in the normal group as control cases. It can be concluded from the findings of the present study that there is significant difference in teeth loss amongst diabetics and non-diabetics. Hence care should be taken the by diabetic patients for the dental problems by regular visits to the Dentist.
