Diabetes and Dental Health

Maintaining proper oral hygiene is important for anyone who wants to prevent gum disease. However, people with diabetes need to be especially diligent. According to the American Diabetes Association, people with diabetes are at an increased risk of gum disease.

Our staff at Elite Dental Arts offers a full array of dental services including dental hygiene and periodontal health services in order to help you maintain good oral health. Gum disease and diabetes appear to be connected in a few ways. Fluctuating blood glucose levels are believed to make problems with the gums more likely. In addition, research has indicated gum disease may affect blood sugar levels and even contribute to the progression of diabetes.

At Elite Dental Arts, our experienced staff will help you learn ways to reduce your risk of gum disease. We offer services including periodontal cleanings and individualized treatment plans. Gum disease is a preventable complication of diabetes. For those who already have signs of periodontal disease, the condition is treatable and further progression can be prevented.

We are proud to offer our patients exceptional dentistry in a comfortable, state of the art facility. Elite Dental Arts offers comprehensive, restorative and cosmetic dental services.
For more information on diabetes and gum disease or to schedule an appointment, please call our office at (212) 681- 0939 or you may conveniently schedule online.
