Chew over the Connection Between Diabetes and Periodontal Disease

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

Research has shown that diabetics often experience dental problems. If you have diabetes, pay attention to these important tips to keep your smile healthy.

Diabetes is Trouble for Your Teeth

If you have diabetes, you run a higher a risk of having various stages of gum disease. The mildest form of gum disease is called gingivitis, while the most severe is known as periodontal disease. Unfortunately, dentists find that diabetes and periodontal disease often go hand-in-hand.

Why Having Diabetes is an Oral Health Hazard

Few people realize that diabetes and oral health are so closely connected. The problem with diabetes and teeth comes from the body’s natural sugar called glucose, which is also in your saliva. With diabetes, it can be hard to control the amount of glucose in your blood. But when it gets very high, it can cause pain and infection, and can contribute to the growth of bacteria in your mouth. These bacteria then combine with food you eat to form the plaque that causes decay and gum disease.

Detecting Dental Danger

Since it’s common to suffer from problems with diabetes and periodontal disease, it’s important to frequently check your mouth for signs of dental trouble. The most noticeable signs of a problem with diabetes and oral health are red, tender, swollen, or bleeding gums. If you have any cause for concern, go to your dentist immediately to detect if you need treatment.

Defend Yourself from Dental Problems with Diabetes and Teeth

In addition to checking your mouth at home on a regular basis, make sure to see your dentist twice a year for preventative check-ups and cleanings. Also, keep your glucose level under control by eating a healthy diet, getting plenty of exercise, and taking your medication.
