Diabetes and Your Mouth # 4 : Keep Plaque at Bay

Sticky plaque -- food, saliva, and bacteria -- starts to form on your teeth after you eat, releasing acids that attack tooth enamel. Untreated plaque turns into tartar, which builds under gum lines and is hard to remove with flossing. The longer it stays on your teeth, the more harmful it is. Bacteria in plaque causes inflammation and leads to gum disease. Having high blood sugar often makes gum disease worse.

Diabetes and Your Mouth # 2: Control Diabetes to Keep Your Smile

Well-controlled diabetes contributes to a healthy mouth. If you have poorly controlled or high blood sugar, your risk increases for dry mouth, gum disease, tooth loss, and fungal infections like thrush.

No Drilling or Shots?

You probably have never heard of this revolutionary technology, but how about air abrasion to remove decay? Most likely, you will not need a shot of anesthesia and no longer have to feel the vibration of the drill. Tiny particles and air are projected and aimed at the problem area, and it works by misting all the decay away. More tooth structure remains intact, and for many patients there is no pain. You will be very impressed how this works!
