Diabetes and Your Oral Health

November is National Diabetes Month

November is National Diabetes Month. Approximately 24 million Americans have diabetes, and another 57 million people are estimated to have pre-diabetes, a condition that puts them at distinctly increased risk for diabetes. In this population, around one third of people with diabetes have severe periodontal or gum disease. An increasing number of studies are now revealing the link between systemic health and oral health, showing that your dental professionals can often detect symptoms and aid in controlling diabetes.

 

Join Dr. Williams and Dr. Sivie in creating awareness of diabetes detection and control in our community.
