Cases of gum disease in people who suffer from diabetes will almost always be far more severe than those of a non-diabetic. Diabetics (especially uncontrolled cases of diabetes) are at a far higher risk of experiencing bacterial infections of the mouth. The problem then becomes cyclical, as the presence of a bacterial infection may further impair the body's ability to produce insulin, which worsens the diabetic condition itself. Thus, cases of gum disease in diabetics may be far more complicated to treat, and taking precautionary measures by being diligent in your oral care is very important.
Daily thorough brushing and flossing to prevent plaque buildup from your teeth and gums is important, as are regular dental check-ups for professional cleanings and routine periodontal monitoring and evaluation. Early detection of gum disease is key in the successful treatment of periodontal disease - especially in diabetics - so if you are one of the millions of Americans living with diabetes and think you may have gum disease, you may request a free laser gum therapy screening appointment online, or give our offices a call at (888) 659-9446 to schedule a free periodontal evaluation today.
