Diabetes and Dental Health
People who have Diabetes have a higher risk of tooth problems and gum disease. People living with diabetes need to pay attention to their oral health and dental care.
It is important to look after your oral health with regular brushing and flossing and control blood glucose levels to have healthy gums.
Suffering from dry mouth and higher blood glucose can lead to quite aggressive dental decay. This is made especially worse with the intake of sugary snacks.
It is vital that you follow your doctor’s advice about diet and medication to maintain healthy blood glucose levels.
And most importantly visit your dentist regularly. Our friendly team of Dentists at Kenmore will gladly answer any of your concerns.
