Controlling the Effects of Diabetes on Oral Health

photo_dental_-_senior_man_smilingThe Effects of Diabetes on Oral Health

Studies show that people with diabetes are more prone to gum disease than the average person.

Diabetes causes dry mouth, which in turn, can create a breeding ground for bacteria in the mouth.

Take Steps to Ward off Negative Effects of Diabetes on Oral Health

To prevent the accompanying dry mouth with diabetes, you must maintain a strict oral health care regimen. First, you must brush your teeth after every meal and at bedtime, each brushing followed by an alcohol-free mouthwash. Always have drinking water handy for lots of hydration and use a good lip balm to keep lips and corners of mouth moist.

Allowing bacteria to grow in your mouth and enter the blood stream will only increase your glucose blood level as it tries to fight the infection; so in addition to steadfast oral health practices, keep your blood sugar levels at the recommended range.

Professional Dental Care for Diabetics

If you are a person with diabetes, it is highly recommended you work with your dental professional to maintain optimum oral health through a maintained joint effort.

Ocean County dentist, Dr. Ron Rotem has years of experience treating patients suffering from various health conditions that can negatively impact oral health.

Working closely with Dr. Rotem will ensure your at-home oral health practices are successful in fighting the effects of diabetes on your oral health.
