We Care About Diabetes and Oral Health
- November 15, 2021
Thanksgiving isn’t the only big day in November we talk about at Total Dental Care of South Carolina. Because we know about the connection between diseases like diabetes and oral health, we also talk about diabetes this month, also known as American Diabetes Month.
Researchers believe diabetes and gum disease can affect each other because they are both inflammatory conditions. Also, diabetics can’t always shake off infections the way non-diabetics can, which may further explain the recent research on this oral-systemic connection.
We take diabetes and oral health seriously at Total Dental Care of South Carolina. To request an appointment in Columbia, call 803-272-4162 or request one online today. Before your visit, check out this video by the ADA on the oral and overall health connection.
