Looking into a much bigger picture, the prevalence of developing complications like cardiovascular diseases, nephropathy, neuropathy, visual impairments, skin disorders and periodontal diseases as a result of uncontrolled Diabetes Mellitus is also escalated.
San Clemente, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/12/2016 -- There has been a massive increase in the cases of people developing Diabetes Mellitus in the United States in the recent years based on the Center of Disease Control and Prevention. Studies have revealed that the population of Diabetic patients has tripled from the year 1980 up to 2014; this is definitely an alarming number.
Looking into a much bigger picture, the prevalence of developing complications like cardiovascular diseases, nephropathy, neuropathy, visual impairments, skin disorders and periodontal diseases as a result of uncontrolled Diabetes Mellitus is also escalated. And based on clinical research, experts have linked Diabetes and periodontal diseases because based on the data they have gathered, almost half of the United states population are suffering from different forms of dental health issues and these disorders are more prevalent in adults who have been diagnosed with Diabetes Mellitus.
In fact, a renowned professor of Oral Biology and Pathology named Maria E. Ryan, DDS, PhD., stated that one of the most common complications that diabetic people are at risk to is the development of periodontal diseases in her recent review. She further states that if patients have oral infections, the condition would be very difficult to treat because of the elevated blood sugar levels; to be able for a dentist to treat periodontal infections effectively, reduction in the Hemoglobin A1C levels is necessary.
Moreover, even when a person has not yet been confirmed to be a diabetic, the person may already be at risk for periodontal diseases because of systemic health conditions like insulin resistance which is a precursor of Diabetes Mellitus Type 2. In addition to this, those who are currently suffering from periodontal diseases are also likely to develop Diabetes and in worst-case scenarios they can also develop very poor glycemic control which could result to end-stage renal failure and, worse, death.
The bottom line is that glycemic control can make treatments of periodontal diseases more effective and successful and the prevention of the occurrence of periodontal health issues can help prevent the worsening of Diabetes Mellitus. This is what confirms the strong link between the two disorders.
Furthermore, tooth loss can also be attributed to diabetes as a result of severe periodontal infections. And to prevent all these, improvement of dental hygiene and the increased awareness of the risks and complications will absolutely prompt people to seek for medical and dental advice to prevent both conditions and their possible complications.
