Diabetes and Oral Care
Diabetes, regardless of whether you have Type 1 or Type 2, affects the whole body, including your mouth. Proper dental care is important for people with Diabetes because they face a higher than normal risk of oral health problems. As referenced on Web MD, poorly controlled Diabetes impairs white blood cells, which are the body's main defense against bacterial infections that can occur in the mouth. According to the American Diabetes Association, not only are people with Diabetes more susceptible to serious gum disease, but serious gum disease may have the potential to affect blood sugar control and contribute to the progression of Diabetes.
