Diabetes reduces the body's resistance to infection. As a result, the gums are among the tissues likely to be affected. Studies have shown that people with moderate or advanced gum (periodontal) disease are more likely to have heart disease or diabetes than those with healthy gums.
Oral health holds clues to overall health. Studies have shown that oral health can provide warning signs for other diseases or conditions, including heart disease and diabetes
Proper diagnosis and treatment of tooth and gum infections in some of these patients have led to a decrease in blood pressure medications and improved overall health.
For teeth and gums of diabetic and cardiac patients, we offer special attention and care, like:
- Thorough oral examination,
- Regular cleaning of teeth,
- Elimination of any infective or septic foci from mouth,
- Special gum care programmes,
- Treatment for pyorrohea and bleeding gums,
