Denture Care And Diabetes

It’s a well known fact that when you have diabetes you may also have other health related issues.

According to some experts, diabetes sufferers often have increased incidences of:

  • Tooth Decay
  • Dry Mouth
  • Gum Disease

Having a good oral hygiene program is always important, but it’s even more important to take care of your teeth, mouth, and gums when you are a diabetic.

If you have lost teeth due to decay or some form of gum disease, you may have to get false teeth.

Having a dry mouth can be quite a problem to denture wearers, as the lack of saliva often prevents the dentures from staying in place.

When false teeth move around they can cause sore patches or mouth ulcers to develop.

If your teeth don’t stay in place you can use denture fixative, or ask your dentist if you are a suitable candidate for permanent dentures.

The best advice for diabetics who wear false teeth is to maintain a strict oral hygiene regime, make sure your dentures fit properly, treat any oral conditions as soon as they arise, and if there are any problems visit your dentist.
