To protect your smile from various risks that can arise during your lifetime, it is important to assess all potential health risks and eliminate any that may be present. In the case of diabetes, you will not be able to easily limit the condition, but you can make sure that you provide additional care for your smile.

Nearly 30 million people in America are suffering from diabetes. Diabetes is a worldwide problem, and because of this, our dentist will have several treatments in place to ensure that your oral health care is monitored. To lower your risk of further dental damage in association with diabetes, it is important to understand your various risks.

Diabetes can lead to issues and complications associated with delayed recovery time. Furthermore, if you have gum disease, it can lead to further complications that will make diabetes difficult to process. Lower saliva production is also present. If you are suffering from diabetes, you will need to let our dentist know.
