Oral Health and Diabetes

Its important to understand the signs of diabetes and how it impacts your oral health.

  1. You may have less saliva, causing your mouth to fell dry.  Because saliva protects your teeth, you’re also at a higher risk of cavities.
  2. Gums may become inflamed and bleed often (gingivitis).
  3. You may have problems tasting food.
  4. You may experience delayed wound healing and become susceptible to infections inside of your mouth.

Periodontal disease is the most common dental disase affecting 22% of those diagnosed with diabetes. In fact, people with diabetes are at a higher risk for gum problems because of poor blood sugar control.

The good news is that research suggests that treating gum disease can help improve blood sugar control in patients living with diabetes, decreasing the progression of the disease.

Teamwork involving selfcare as well as professional care will be beneficial in keeping your healthy smile as well as potentially slowing the progression of diabetes. So make sure to see your dental team for regular check ups.  To schedule an appointment visit avdgplc.com.
