Unlock the Dangerous Link Between Diabetes and Oral Health

dca-blog-174-diabetes-and-dental-care

According to scientific studies, people with diabetes have an above-normal risk of developing the most serious form of gum disease called periodontal disease. Find out how to protect yourself.

The Real-Life Risk

The connection between periodontal disease and diabetes is due to diabetic control. See, having periodontal disease makes it hard to control your blood glucose level. When your blood glucose isn’t controlled, the body’s excess sugar tends to advance the growth of the oral germs that cause dental decay and infections. If these dental concerns aren’t treated, they make it more difficult to control your diabetes. This produces a vicious cycle of diabetes and oral health problems.

Avoid the Complications of Periodontal Disease and Diabetes

Health experts say that diabetics can avoid many complications with both diabetes and teeth by taking care of their dental health and maintaining control of blood sugar. Try these helpful tips to avoid potential problems:

  • Try to keep your blood sugar level under control.
  • Brush your teeth gently at least twice a day.
  • Floss well daily.
  • Get professional dental check-ups and cleanings every six months, or more frequently if you have a history of diabetes and oral health problems.
  • Tell your dentist if you’re diabetic.
  • Go to your dentist immediately if you have a dental problem to avoid further issues with diabetes and teeth.
  • If your blood sugar level is not under control, postpone any non-emergency dental procedures.
