Periodontal Disease and Diabetes

Thousand Oaks, Westlake Village and Agoura Hills, CA

Gum disease is a common complication of diabetes. Here at Integrative Dental Arts, we encourage all people to take good care of their gum health but if you are a diabetic, you need to pay extra attention to your oral health due to the strong connection that is often described as a double-edged sword. Periodontal disease can increase your risk of diabetes complications. Diabetes increases oral bacteria so those with the disease need to ensure they take good care of their oral health daily as well as work closely with a dentist to ensure their periodontal health is closely monitored. At Integrative Dental Arts, Dr. Kathleen Carson and the team are well-versed in prevention and treatment of periodontal disease.

Gum Disease Treatment and Blood Sugar

Gum disease can have a very negative impact on your mouth. But beyond your mouth, it can impact your blood sugar, as well. Gum disease is linked to a number of health problems and serious diseases. The best defense, beyond consistently high standards in oral care is to ensure you get regular dental examinations. At our Agoura Hills dental office, your smile and your health are important. Diabetics should ensure they have their oral health closely monitored.
