Hygiene Tips for Diabetics

Diabetics need to be mindful of their oral hygiene to prevent infections, especially when their blood sugar levels are poorly controlled.

Protect your smile, control your diabetes.

Dental plaque, primarily composed of bacteria, can lead to gum inflammation if not removed. This inflammation puts individuals at a higher risk for oral health problems.

People with diabetes have a harder time combating bacterial plaque, making them more vulnerable to gingivitis, which is characterized by red and swollen gums, increased sensitivity, and bleeding during brushing. Untreated gingivitis can progress to periodontitis, a more serious infection that attacks the supporting bone structure of the teeth, ultimately leading to tooth loss.

Conversely, gum disease can impact blood sugar levels. That's why regular brushing after meals and consistent use of dental floss are essential, especially for individuals with diabetes.
