Why Dentists are So Concerned about Diabetes and Teeth

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

Diabetics must be aware about new research on the dangerous relationship between diabetes and periodontal disease. If you have diabetes or dental health problems, you can’t afford to ignore these findings.

The Real Risk Found in the Research

If you have diabetes, you may have another health problem to worry about. Research shows a much higher rate of gum disease in diabetics than in people without diabetes. This link between diabetes and oral health suggests that people with diabetes are at higher risk for both the early stage of gum disease called gingivitis, as well as the advanced stage called periodontal disease.

Twice the Trouble

When researchers looked deeper into the link between diabetes and teeth, they found that the relationship between diabetes and periodontal disease was actually reciprocal. First, people with diabetes are more vulnerable to developing gum disease than non-diabetics. Secondly, having severe gum disease can make it harder to control blood sugar and can worsen your diabetes.

Protect Your Dental and Overall Health

If you have diabetes, you need to be pro-active about both managing your disease and taking care of your teeth. To avoid any pain and problems with diabetes and teeth, follow these smart steps:

  • Keep your blood glucose level under control.
  • Don’t smoke.
  • Maintain good dental habits at home, such as brushing twice a day and flossing daily.
  • Visit your dentist for checkups and cleanings at least twice a year. You may need to go more frequently if you have a history of diabetes and oral health
  • At the first sign of a dental problem, go to your dentist immediately.
