Diabetes and Oral Health Directory

Good oral health contributes to overall good health. Problems maintaining blood sugar levels can lead to more frequent or more severe oral health problems. Also, the condition impairs white blood cells and exposes a person to dry mouth, infection, and gingivitis. Another problem may include wounds that heal slowly. Additionally, dentist visits need to be carefully coordinated to avoid medication complications. Also, diabetes patients may be required to take antibiotics prior getting dental care or surgery.
