With the oral systemic connection, there are studies that show the strong link between an unhealthy smile and problems with medical conditions such as Diabetes. Nearly 95 percent of patients who have diabetes also have periodontal disease, and of those, 30 percent have severe stages of it with loss of attachment of the gums to the teeth. Advanced gum disease can also significantly increase the risk for developing diabetes. This is why Dr. Yolanda Cintron of Go Natural Dentistry provides her patients with periodontal care and attention to keep their smiles, as well as their bodies, healthy.
Patients with Diabetes may also have considerable problems with their smile due to poor control of their blood sugar levels. Dr. Cintron is well educated on the dangers of gum disease, inflammatory infections, and Diabetes. She knows that gum disease can result in the loss of bone, gum tissue, and teeth. Patients who have been impacted by Diabetes may want to work closely with our team to incorporate Diabetes dentistry protocols into their regular oral health routines and care, and rely on Dr. Yolanda Cintron to monitor their progress closely over time to ensure the two do not cause interrelated problems within the body.
A thorough examination is recommended to get a proper diagnosis and work with a dental team for treatment. Dr. Yolanda Cintron can determine the source of the problem and work with individuals to determine what dental services are best to enhance one’s dental health and the body’s wellbeing.
