Gum Health Affects Risk Of Type 2 Diabetes

gum disease increases diabetes risk Dallas

At Dr. Howard Kessner General, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in Dallas we are concerned not only with the your dental health, but also with how it influences your overall physical health and well-being.

In this post we look at the connection between diabetes and dental health. Scientists have known for quite some time that people with diabetes have higher rates of gum disease. Maintaining proper blood glucose levels is the key to minimizing the risk of gum disease and related dilemmas for those affected.

Additional research is exploring the reverse relationship: that is, whether poor oral health increases the risk of developing diabetes. Findings from a long-term study suggests that it does.

Additional trials are exploring how tooth and gum health jolts the ability of diabetics to manage the disease.

If you have diabetes, it is important that you have regular dental checkups and are dedicated to daily oral hygiene, proper nutrition, and other important practices. Your success in controlling your blood glucose levels will improve your oral health and vice-versa.

At Dr. Howard Kessner General, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in Dallas the well-being of all our patients is important to us. We treat gum disease, and people from Richardson, Plano, and Prestonwood also come to us for complete general dentistry services. Call us to schedule your next checkup today!
