munhälsa för diabetiker

Diabetes is not only a risk factor for serious systemic diseases such as cardiovascular disease and kidney problems, but it also directly affects oral health. People with diabetes have an increased risk of developing dental diseases such as periodontitis, an infection that damages the gums and bone that hold teeth in place. This type of infection can lead to tooth loss if left untreated. Diabetes also contributes to dry mouth, which in turn can increase the risk of tooth decay and other oral health problems as saliva plays a critical role in neutralizing acids produced by bacteria in the mouth.

It is important for people with diabetes to take extra precautions to protect their oral health. Regular visits to the dentist to monitor and treat any conditions at an early stage are essential. At Gloss & Floss Dental Care, we understand the connection between diabetes and oral health and specialize in addressing the specific needs of diabetics.
