Diabetes and gum disease

People with diabetes are more likely to develop gum disease, and the presence of gum disease makes it more difficult for diabetics to control blood glucose levels. Because of this, people who have Diabetes need to take very good care of their dental and oral health and hygiene.

We understand the importance of oral health care in the overall management of diabetes. To help our patients with diabetes address this, we provide specific dentistry consultations and tailor-made dental care and treatment plans for diabetics.

As with any patient, Bite Dental dentists will take a thorough medical history from a diabetes patient to ensure that they are aware of any potential complications or contraindications before providing treatment. They may work closely with the patient’s endocrinologist or other healthcare providers to ensure that the patient’s diabetes is well-managed and controlled. Additionally, they may provide additional oral health education to diabetes patients, as they are at increased risk of developing gum disease and other oral health issues. Bite Dental dentists may also recommend more frequent dental checkups and cleanings for diabetes patients to help prevent and manage any oral health problems.

Diabetics should visit Bite Dental every 3-4 months for routine check-ups and cleanings, in addition to any necessary appointments for dental issues that may arise. It is important for diabetics to maintain good oral health, as high blood sugar levels can increase the risk of developing dental problems such as gum disease and tooth decay.

While dental implants can be successful in diabetic patients, it is important to note that diabetics may be at a higher risk of complications such as implant failure, infections and delayed healing. As such, it is important for diabetic patients to discuss their medical history with their Bite Dental dentist and follow their recommended treatment plan closely to ensure the best possible outcome.
