Why when you have diabetes you need to see your dentist regularly?

At 1300SMILES dentists we care about your oral health and as a diabetic we know that there may be some very unique issues which you may encounter. Such problems may include:

  • Gum disease
  • Dry mouth
  • Tooth decay
  • Thrush
  • Mouth ulcers
  • Taste disturbances
  • Gum abscesses (an infection of the tooth and or gums)

As dentists we also know how important oral health is to those with such diagnosis and offer specific advice and services to help manage any associated concerns.

By ensuring that you receive regular check-ups with an oral health professional many of these challenges can be avoided or treated and at 1300SMILES we want you to enjoy the best oral health possible.

Being diabetic also means that you are at a greater risk of encountering oral disorders due to bacteria growth (from poor blood glucose control), specific diabetic medication and hypo treatments such as sweetened drinks and lollies.  Our dentists at 1300SMILES can provide advice on the best way to keep your oral health at its best, and remember, early diagnosis of oral health issues will be both healthier for you and keep expense to a minimum. Diagnosing oral health problems at a later stage could mean that suitable treatment and associated costs are both longer and greater.

So, let 1300SMILES dentists be part of your diabetes management plan and book an appointment with us today by phoning 1300 764 537, or use our convenient online booking tool:

In our state of the art dental practice you are assured of the best in dental care and we accept a variety of health funds. We also have payment plans and convenient ways to pay including the new ZIP payment system.
