Based on the latest researches, it has been proved that diabetes are in higher risk for gum disease. Whether you have type 1, or type 2 diabetes, monitoring and controlling the blood sugar level is critical. The higher your blood sugar level, the higher your risk of tooth decay, gingivitis, and periodontitis.
Oral Health and Diabetes
Diabetes reduces your body’s ability to fight against bacteria. Higher blood sugar levels also increase the occurrence of plaque on your teeth and around the gumline. More severe gum disease (periodontitis) can cause an infection in your gums, which can result in higher blood sugar levels and more challenges with controlling the disease. And people with diabetes may experience more severe cases of periodontal disease.
If you have diabetes, it’s important to have regular dental exams and dental cleanings. Make sure to tell your dentist that you have diabetes because it can significantly affect your oral health and also significantly help your dentist to navigate his method for treating your teeth. At home, you need to establish excellent daily oral health habits.
Prevent Gum Disease
The Cleanplak® Water Flosser is one of the few home care products clinically tested with people who have diabetes. The results of a clinical study showed that the Cleanplak® Water Flosser was significantly more effective than routine oral care in seducing gingivitis symptoms in diabetic patients.
When added to tooth brushing, a Cleanplak Water Flosser is ideal for a diabetic’s oral health because it can significantly reduce plaque, bleeding, and gingivitis better than toothbrushing alone.
