Does Diabetes Affect Oral Health?

Posted on by admin

diabetes

Over the years, I’ve treated numerous patients with diabetes at my Goose Creek dental office. We always want every patient to make sure they’re taking great care of their teeth, but it’s important for folks with diabetes to be even more vigilant about maintaining their oral health care routines. Why? Unfortunately, diabetes can leave you more susceptible to other issues that affect the mouth and teeth. These include: periodontal (gum) disease, infections, poor healing, and dry mouth.

I’ve put together this list of tips to help you make sure both you and your mouth are healthy:

Tip #1 — Keep Blood Sugar Numbers Stable

Tip #2 — Remember to Eat Healthy

Tip #3 — Maintain Your Oral Hygiene Routine

At my dental office in Goose Creek, we want our patients and their smiles to be in the very best health every day. If you have diabetes and notice anything unusual about your mouth or teeth as you go about your daily hygiene routine, please do not hesitate to give us a call. We’re always happy to answer any questions you may have.

Welcoming patients from Goose Creek, Moncks Corner, North Charleston.
