Diabetes is a horrible disease and it is the main cause of blindness, amputations and kidney failure. Diabetes is expected to become the 7th main cause of death in the next 10 years! Why does all this concern the dentist?
At Dentist Direct we care about a person’s whole health and if you have diabetes you are 4 times more likely to develop gum disease. Also it has been proven that if you have diabetes and gum disease they have a bidriectional effect on each other; the diabetes makes the gum disease worse and the gum disease makes the diabetes worse!
