Diabetes can lead to infections in your gums and the bones that hold your teeth in place. Like all infections, gum infections can cause blood glucose to rise. A sticky film full of germs, called plaque, builds up on your teeth. High blood glucose helps germs, grow. Then you can get red, sore, and swollen gums that bleed when you brush your teeth. Red, sore, and bleeding gums are the first sign of gum disease. These problems can lead to periodontitis.


Dr. Srikanth's Diabetes Specialities Centre advices you to Use dental floss at least once a day particularly if intra dental contact is not good or food is lodging between the teeth. Flossing helps prevent food block and plaque formation. Plaque can harden and grow under your gums and cause problems. we advice you to use a sawing motion, gently bring the floss between the teeth, scraping from bottom to top several times.


Brush your teeth after each meal and snack with proper method. Improper brushing technique may cause cervical abrasions exposing patient to sensitivity for cold or hot food. Use a soft toothbrush. Turn the bristles against the gum line and brush gently. Use small, circular motions. Brush the front, back, and top of each tooth. Brush your teeth at least twice a day, floss your teeth once a day, and schedule dental exams at least twice a year.


Oral hygiene is very important for healthy life.
