Know How Diabetes Affects Your Gum Health

November is Diabetes Awareness Month, which is why your Charlotte, NC dentists want you to know what this means for your oral health.

We’re sharing this video to help you understand the connection between diabetes and gum disease and steps you can take to keep your risk for this smile destroyer as low as possible!

It also helps to know the common signs of gingivitis, the earliest stage of gum disease, like:

  • Red, puffy gums
  • Tender gums
  • Gums that bleed easily when brushing or flossing

If you’re already experiencing symptoms, we can perform noninvasive gum disease treatment that gives the area around and below the gumline a deep cleaning and smooths over the roots of your teeth to prevent harmful bacteria from collecting there again.

With this gentle but effective treatment, you can stay ahead of this insidious infection and keep your teeth strong.
