Did you know that diabetes can affect your oral health? Did you know that oral health can affect your diabetes?
The relationship between serious gum disease and diabetes is two way. Not only are people with diabetes more susceptible to gum disease, but serious gum disease can affect blood glucose control.
If you have diabetes:
- Brush and floss your teeth daily
- Have your teeth cleaned on a regular basis by a Dental Hygienist
- See a Dentist at least once a year
Dental Hygienists visit each community monthly. If you have diabetes and would like to have an oral health assessment, call us at 467-8770.
