DIABETES AND PERIODONTAL DISEASE- A TWO WAY RELATIONSHIP
Helping you improve your diabetes by controlling your oral health
At Diabetes Dental Care we focus on controlling the oral health of patients with Diabetes. If you have Diabetes, you may have been told about the importance of looking after your eyes, your feet, your diet and checking your glucose daily but what about your oral health?
Periodontal disease (gum disease) has been proposed as the sixth most common complication of diabetes mellitus. People with Diabetes are 2 to 3 times more likely to develop periodontal disease. There are also other oral manifestations such as dry mouth, fungus and caries.
Early identification and management of these oral manifestations can help you achieve a better glycaemic control. At Diabetes Dental Care we can help you look after your oral health and incorporate it into your Diabetes care routine in order to improve your quality of life.
London Medical has been referring patients to Diabetes Dental since September 2014. Feedback from our patients on the experience has been universally positive, with numerous comments on the professionalism, skill and warmth extended by you and your team. Those views are echoed by our consultants, who make particular mention of the high quality and appropriate detail of Diabetes Dental reports.
We are very pleased to recommend Diabetes Dental to our Patients. The quality of service provided by your team is of a high standard and we are assured that those patients we recommend to your care are treated with the same respect and kindness that we pride ourselves on at London Medical. We look forward to building an ever closer mutually beneficial relationship with Diabetes Dental, and to continue recommending to our patients a professional service with out own standards.
