Diabetic & Dental Benefits – CDC Advice

Medicare Dental

If you’re diabetic, the CDC recommends that you get a dental exam once a year or more often if your dentist says you need it. At your exam, your dentist or dental hygienist can:

  • Explain how diabetes affects your teeth and gums and check for problems, like cavities or gum disease.
  • Treat any problems you have with your teeth or gums.
  • Teach you how to check for signs of gum disease at home.
  • Provide care, like a fluoride treatment, to keep your mouth healthy.
  • Tell you how to treat problems, such as dry mouth.
  • Work with your dentist to create a health plan for your teeth.

    • Ask your dentist how to take care of your teeth at home and how often to come in for a dental visit.
    • Ask what to do if you start having problems with your teeth or gums.
    • Ask your dentist to send your exam results to your other doctors after every visit.
    • Be sure to keep your next dentist  appointment!

    Take care of your teeth at home.

    • Brush with a soft-bristled toothbrush two times a day or more.
    • Use toothpaste with fluoride and floss once a day.
    • Check your mouth for red or swollen gums, bleeding gums, loose teeth, a change in how your bite feels, or bad breath.
    • Visit a dentist if you think you have gum disease.
    • Limit food and drinks that are high in sugar.
