According to the American Dental Association and WebMD, people with diabetes are at greater risk for tooth loss and periodontal (gum) disease because they are generally more susceptible to bacterial infections. High blood glucose levels, which are common for both type 1 and type 2 diabetics, allow dangerous germs to build up on teeth and gums.
For diabetics who are dealing with tooth loss, there is a new solution to consider: New Face Dentures. New Face Dentures are an excellent treatment option for people with missing teeth. And, if you have diabetes, but are not missing all of your teeth there are options for tooth replacement available to you at Whitmore Dental in Plano.
Dealing with diabetes is a challenge, but your oral health does not have to be. If you are living with diabetes and need a dentist who has completed advanced, post doctorate education to address your condition, help replace missing teeth and possibly custom fit New Face Dentures using extremely detailed technique, you should contact Plano Dentist, Dr. Marc Whitmore of Whitmore Dental.
