FAQs on Diabetes and Dental Health

1.Which doctor should I consult for diabetes and dental health?

You can consult both, a dentist as well as diabetologist.

2. What are the common symptoms of diabetes?

There may be no warning symptoms. Being very thirsty, urinating often, feeling very hungry, feeling very tired, losing weight without trying or dry and itchy skin may occur. Advanced diabetics may experience feelings of pins and needles in feet, losing feeling or sensation in feet, and blurry eyesight.

3. Is sugarless gum healthy for teeth?

Chewing sugarless gum is good for diabetic patients as it stimulates the flow of saliva. As saliva works as a natural mouthwash by dissolving the volatile sulphur molecules and neutralizing acids produced by plaque bacteria, they can prevent tooth decay and gum diseases.

4. Does teeth cleaning make them loose?

Teeth will not become loose because of the cleaning procedure. The teeth are held firmly in place due to the gums and the bone around them. The tartar gathered around the teeth causes infection of the gums and bone. This tartar, if not removed periodically (once in every 6 months) can cause loosening of teeth.

5. What are the consequences of missing teeth?

First, missing teeth will not only affect your smile but also make the skin around your mouth to sag, making you appear older than you are. Additionally, missing teeth will make it more difficult to chew your food properly and may even affect the way you speak. If you are currently missing any of your teeth, consider replacing them with dental implants, which can look and feel just like natural teeth.
