Examining the connection between diabetes and dental care
Updated: 11/18/2011 7:00:03 PM

"It’s hard to overemphasize the importance of oral health on the body as a whole,” said Camacho. November is National Diabetes Awareness Month, which is a good time to examine the connection between oral health and the disease. Recently, Texas dentist Edward Camacho said that residents of Alamo City need to be aware of the importance of maintaining dental health, as the region's largely Hispanic population is twice as likely to develop diabetes than the rest of the country. 

"It’s hard to overemphasize the importance of oral health on the body as a whole,” said Camacho. “Diabetes is a killer for Americans as a whole...this month is a good time to get a diabetes screening, as well as to start a dedicated regiment of oral health."

The dentist included some important facts about diabetes and oral care. For example, people with diabetes have higher levels of glucose in their blood and saliva, which make for an ideal breeding ground for the bacteria that causes gum disease and tooth decay.

Camacho also added that gum disease can worsen diabetes, and vice versa. Finally, some researchers believe that oral health problems can lead to individuals with pre-diabetes symptoms to develop the condition.
