What's the link between diabetes and gum disease?
The fact is, people with diabetes are at a higher risk for developing gum disease and losing teeth. This does not, however, mean that this is inevitable!
Infections, including gum disease, cause rises in blood sugar, which can make it more difficult to control diabetes. If you have diabetes, it’s important to let your dentist know.
To help prevent problems from developing, brush and floss your teeth vigilantly and maintain a healthy diet. Give our team a call for a dental cleaning and exam.
