Emergency dentistry ‘could highlight risk of diabetes’


Gum disease sufferers should not avoid emergency dentistry, as they may have diabetes.  People who fear they have gum disease should not put off having emergency dentistry, as it could provide a vital check for diabetes.

This is according to Scott Navarro, a dental director in New Jersey, who told NJ Today that oral healthcare practitioners could provide an early warning that allows potential diabetics to be on the alert and to get treatment if they need it.

"We've known for a long time that people with diabetes are more susceptible to gum disease," he commented.

"It is emerging that periodontal (gum) disease is associated with increased risk for diabetes complications."

According to Diabetes UK, there are 2.8 million people with the condition in Britain, as well as another 500,000 who have it but do not realise.

Last month, Dr Bianca Flora, an oral health specialist in the US, told the CT Post that patients could avoid gum disease and having to have their teeth pulled out via emergency dentistry by getting regular check-ups and appointments with a hygienist.


Have teeth checked ‘before a holiday’


Have teeth checked=To reduce the likelihood of requiring dental treatment while on holiday, one specialist has recommended visiting the dentist prior to the trip.

Suzy Press from the Children’s Dentistry of Morristown explained how everyone should have their oral health assessed before a period away from home, New Jersey Today reports.

She advised: “Get a complete dental check-up and a ‘good-to-go’ clearance from the dentist before you leave.”

Ms Press also stressed the importance of not only being checked in advance but also pre-empting where to go and what to do if an urgent dental situation arises while out of town.

In support of the idea was dentist Scott Navarro, who urged individuals not to forget about their teeth when planning their journey, as doing so could significantly increase the chance of problems.

Experts at WorlDental recently warned parents that children should have immediate treatment for mouth injuries or they could lead to speech impediments and damage to their appearance.ADNFCR-2621-ID-19862676-ADNFCR
