The rotten alliance: Diabetes and Gum Disease in Bristol

If you suffer from diabetes, you will know how difficult this can make life for you; you have to be on top of your health and diet, be wary of the sugar levels in your body and keep to a strict regime each day with your insulin intake. However, the reason to be on the ball with this condition is because it weakens other aspects within your body, such as your immune system, and this can be detrimental to the health of your mouth. If weakened, the immune system fails to provide the mouth with adequate saliva, and then it is ‘open day’ for bacteria to roam wild amongst your teeth and gums. In the long run, this can lead to tooth decay and gum disease setting up shop in your mouth- two of the most vicious players your mouth can suffer from and not easy to fight, especially if you are already weakened by diabetes. However, to change things around, gum disease on its own can weaken your immune system too; this can break down the sugar levels in your body and then guess what? It can actually induce the possibility of diabetes breaking out in the body. Both conditions on their own are potentially lethal, but combined they are tragic. Clifton Dental are a company based in the Bristol area and verse themselves in every aspect of dentistry, so give them a call immediately if you are familiar with anything that has been raised above.
