Diabetes: How It Affects Oral Health

15 May 2017

Research shows that gum disease and diabetes may affect one another. Gum disease can intensify the complications associated with diabetes, by increasing blood sugar levels. High blood sugars levels over an extended period of time are associated with premature degeneration of eyes, kidneys nerves and blood vessels. Studies have shown that people with Diabetes face a greater risk of developing oral infections and gum disease over those who do not have Diabetes. Good news is that the treatment of either diabetes or oral disease and infection can lead to improvements in each other. Dr. Reddy has the necessary training and experience to assess your oral health concerns, and to provide the treatment that best suits your needs.

Some of the most common oral health problems associated with diabetes:

  • Tooth decay
  • Gum disease
  • Dry mouth
  • Fungal infections
  • Lesions in the mouth
  • Taste impairment
  • Infection and delayed healing

If you are Diabetic, please speak to Dr. Reddy for the best course of treatment, and let her know:

  • If the diabetes is under control
  • If you take insulin and when your last dose of insulin was administered
  • If there has been any other changes in your medical history
  • As well as list any other medical prescriptions you are taking.
