Common Questions About Dentistry for Diabetics

Does diabetes affect my oral health?

Diabetics are at greater risk of problems with their oral hygiene. Their white blood cells are elevated, which makes them more likely to have bacterial infections, including oral infections. Oral health can also suffer due to a lack of saliva resulting from medication side effects. This results in dry mouth and therefore tooth decay, soreness, and ulcers. Diabetics are also at greater risk for gingivitis, which can ultimately result in gum disease.

Why do I need special dentistry for diabetics?

Our goal for every patient is to keep their mouth healthy and to treat small issues before they become larger problems. This is especially important for diabetics. If a diabetic develops problems that need extensive work or surgery, they may experience slow healing because of lack of immediate blood flow to the area that was worked on. We deal with these problems a great deal and are recognized as experts in diabetic dentistry in Honolulu.

Do diabetics have bad breath?

Diabetes can raise glucose levels in your mouth, which makes you more prone to the bacteria growth that can cause bad breath – and even worse, decay and infection. If you have high blood sugar, it’s also harder for your body to fight infection. Because of this, it takes longer for diabetics to recover from gum disease and other dental problems. That’s why preventive care is so important for diabetics.
