Maintaining good dental health is crucial for everyone, but it holds even greater significance for people living with diabetes.
Individuals with diabetes can be more prone to periodontal (gum) disease, tooth decay, and other oral health issues due to elevated blood sugar levels.
Additionally, diabetes can reduce blood flow to the gums, impairing the body’s ability to fight off infections.
It is important for those with diabetes to maintain a regular oral hygiene routine. This includes brushing teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste and flossing daily.
The other vital role in preventing complications is regular dental check-ups. Nundah Village Dental suggest scheduling dental visits every six months so their dental professionals can assess your oral health, professionally clean your teeth and detect any early signs of gum disease or other issues.
The team at Nundah Village Dental has a holistic approach to dental care and works with patients to tailor treatment plans that help patients maintain dental health for life. Nundah Village Dental has recently welcomed Jay to the team, who has experience with children and adults with additional health requirements, and can help those who may need extra support.
