If you have diabetes, getting regular oral health care becomes even more important in order to prevent complications that may be brought about by problems with your gums, or teeth. It is important for diabetic patients to control their blood sugar with a proper diet. Tooth loss, or gum disease can make eating more difficult.

Many people have diabetes, but don’t know it. Your Aurora dentistry professional may very well be the one to recognize symptoms like “burning mouth syndrome,” and “dry mouth.” Aurora dentistry will advise patients with these conditions to stay hydrated, and chew sugarless gum for relief.
