Cardiac and Diabetic Dental Care

Diabetic Dental Care :

Diabetes reduces the body's resistance to infection. As a result, the gums are among the tissues likely to be affected. Studies have shown that people with moderate or advanced gum (periodontal) disease are more likely to have heart disease or diabetes than those with healthy gums.

Oral health holds clues to overall health. Studies have shown that oral health can provide warning signs for other diseases or conditions, including heart disease and diabetes.

Whether you have type 1 diabetes or type 2 diabetes, managing your blood sugar level is key. The higher your blood sugar level, the higher your risk of:

  • Tooth decay (cavities).
  • Early gum disease (gingivitis).
  • Advanced gum disease (periodontitis).
  • Thrush.
  • Dry mouth (xerostomia).
