Can
diabetes
affect my
oral health?
THE ANSWER COLUMN
People with diabetes are at
a higher risk of oral health
problems. These include the
usual suspects such as
cavities, gum disease, dry
mouth, and thrush.
Diabetes reduces the body’s
ability to repair itself after
injury. Also, the medications
that diabetics take may
increase the risk of some of
the above diseases.
Diabetes will make it more
diffi cult to heal after certain
dental treatments or if you get
sores in your mouth. For this
reason, it is important to keep
your mouth as healthy as
possible.
What can you do to protect
your oral health if you have
diabetes? Great second
question.
Keep your blood glucose at a
healthy level. When these levels
fl uctuate, the body’s ability to
protect itself is diminished.
Brush your teeth twice a day
with a fl uoridated toothpaste.
Clean between the teeth
with fl oss or another cleaner
such as a water – pik
See your dentist regularly.
Make sure your dental
professionals know about your
diabetes and the medications
that you take.
Although this is directed to
those with diabetes, all of us
will benefi t from a little more
attention to our oral health.
