Are you diabetic? Here are 3 words of order for a healthy mouth!

People with diabetes need to pay special attention to their oral health as they are more susceptible to infections of all kinds.

Why is diabetes making it more vulnerable to gum disease?

  • The diabetic would produce less collagen to the gums. As this protein is responsible for tissue repair, the gum becomes more prone to attack.
  • Diabetes also causes inflammation of the blood vessels. The influx of blood to the vessels of the gingiva decreases, which impedes the nutritional supply to the gums and slows down the healing process of the lesions.
  • In the case of poorly controlled blood glucose levels, mouth fluids would contain more glucose, which would lead to the production of other organisms, such as fungi.

People with diabetes have a harder time fighting bacterial plaque. As it accumulates, it calcifies and becomes tartar. The gums become more vulnerable to gingivitis, the main symptoms of which are red and swollen gums and hypersensitivity or bleeding during brushing. Untreated gingivitis will eventually degenerate into periodontitis, a more serious infection that attacks the supporting bone of the teeth.

The best way to prevent and prevent periodontal disease is to maintain the balance of your diabetes. Because a person who controls his disease well has a gingival tissue that behaves almost the same as a non-diabetic person.

Adopting healthy oral habits, such as brushing your teeth after meals, and routine use of dental floss, is essential. We must also make regular visits to the dentist and signify any changes to our health.

A real vicious circle, uncontrolled blood sugar can aggravate periodontal disease, which in turn can harm diabetes. Three watchwords should therefore be remembered to prevent gum disease, disease or general health deterioration: glycemic control, adequate oral hygiene and vigilance.
