7 Ways an Affordable Dentist Can Help People with Diabetes

You want to have a healthy smile, but having diabetes can make it hard to prevent dental damage. See what you must do to maintain your dental health.

Discover the Danger of Diabetes to your Dental Health
Did you know that having diabetes increases your risk of dental problems? Blame it on blood glucose because dental damage starts when a germ-filled film of plaque starts to accumulate on teeth. This plaque can cause tooth decay and gum disease. High blood glucose actually causes plaque to grow, which greatly increases the risk of major dental diseases and makes it much harder to have healthy gums and teeth.

How an Affordable Dentist can Protect your Teeth and Gums

  1. You must tell your family dentist if you suffer from diabetes.
  2. Brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss on a daily basis to lay the groundwork for healthy gums and teeth.
  3. Learn about the correct brushing and flossing techniques at your dental clinic.
  4. Go to a dental clinic regularly for cleanings and check-ups. Most people need to go twice a year, but people with diabetes may need to see their family dentist more often.
  5. Ask your primary physician and family dentist if switching your diabetes medication can help you maintain healthy gums and teeth.
  6. Try to keep your blood glucose level close to normal.
  7. Contact an affordable dentist if you have any dental problems.
