Type II Diabetes is a process that can lead to all degenerative disease which include cancer, heart disease, obesity, and amputation to note a few.
If neglected or simply ignored, this crippling condition quietly progresses without obvious symptoms.
Type II Diabetes is a direct result of misinformation about food and poor choices made in one’s lifestyle. Some people have been misled into believing that it is merely part of getting old. NOT TRUE! We will provide you with the truth based on ethical science.
People who have been diagnosed with diabetes have a higher risk of tooth and gum problems.
If you suffer from poorly controlled diabetes you may have a higher risk of tooth problems and gum disease than people without diabetes. This is because they have lowered resistance to infection and may not heal as easily. If you have diabetes, you need to pay particular attention to your oral health and dental care, as well as controlling your blood glucose levels.
Diabetes is a common disease among Australians, and the first signs and symptoms of diabetes can occur in the mouth, so paying attention to your oral health can also lead to earlier diagnosis and treatment.
- Periodontal (gum) disease
- Gum abscesses
- Tooth decay
- Fungal infections such as thrush
- Lichen planus (an inflammatory, autoimmune skin condition)
- Mouth ulcers
- Taste disturbances
- A dry, burning mouth (low saliva levels).
It is important to look after your oral health and control your blood glucose levels to prevent gum disease. It is a two-way street. Treating gum disease helps to improve blood glucose control in people with diabetes, and people with good control of their blood glucose levels respond very well to dental treatment.
