What Is The Treatment Of Dental Problems And Diabetes?

Your dentist can help you take care of your teeth and gums by
  • cleaning and checking your teeth twice a year
  • helping you learn the best way to brush and floss your teeth
  • telling you if you have problems with your teeth or gums and what to do about them
  • making sure your false teeth fit well
Get your teeth cleaned and checked twice a year.
Plan ahead. You may be taking a diabetes medicine that can cause low blood glucose, also called hypoglycemia. Talk with your doctor and dentist before the visit about the best way to take care of your blood glucose during the dental work. You may need to bring some diabetes medicine and food with you to the dentist’s office.
If your mouth is sore after the dental work, you might not be able to eat or chew for several hours or days. For guidance on how to adjust your normal routine while your mouth is healing, ask your doctor
  • what foods and drinks you should have
  • how you should change your diabetes medicines
  • how often you should check your blood glucose
