Diabetes

Madison, TN Gum Disease Treatment

for Diabetics

Periodontal disease is getting increasing attention as dangerous due to the many systemic links. The link between gum disease and diabetes is something to be very concerned about. Those with diabetes must be vigilant about keeping gums healthy as gum disease means an ongoing infection that will exacerbate diabetes. Those without gum disease but who have diabetes should also know that their blood sugar can increase their chances of gum disease. Madison, TN dentists Dr. Raj care about periodontal health. Not only are assessments done at every check-up in an effort to prevent gum disease but those with signs of gum disease can also get treatment, such as scaling and root planing. If you have diabetes, it’s very important to let your dentist know about it.

Systemic Links

There are far-reaching impacts when it comes to your oral health. Gum disease has always been linked with tooth loss as well as discomfort but it’s also linked to a multitude of risks and diseases that can harm your health as well as your smile. Research has pointed to many areas of risk above and beyond diabetes. Other links include stroke and heart disease, cancer, respiratory disease, pregnancy complications, ulcers, and more. New patients of Madison Family Dental are encouraged to share your medical history, particularly if you have signs of gum disease (bleeding gums, discomfort, discolorations). When it comes to diabetes, gum disease is considered a double-edged sword because of how both conditions can exacerbate one another.
