Focusing On Your Whole Body Health

Did you know that people with Diabetes are more likely to develop oral health problems?  It’s true; 29.1 million people living in the United States have diabetes? That’s 9.3% of the population. Approximately 1.7 million new cases are diagnosed each year and 8.1 million people living with diabetes don’t even know they have it. Maintaining your blood sugar is very important because if not your white blood cells weaken, which are the body’s main defense against infections that can occur in the mouth. Some oral health problems associated with diabetes can be the following: Gingivitis (inflammation of the gums) insufficient healing of gum tissue after oral surgery or dental procedures, and Dry mouth. This is why it is important to follow good oral hygiene. How can you improve your oral health?

November is Diabetes Awareness

  1. Take care of your teeth by brushing and flossing at least 2 times a day goes a long way.
  2. An electric tooth brush and waterpik works wonders! Especially removing that plaque that lingers in between your teeth.
  3. Avoid having sugar and smoking
  4. Eat a healthier diet
  5. See a dentist regularly especially if you have been diagnosed with a periodontal disease.

At your dental visit let your dentist/Hygienist know the status of your diabetes. Come join our dental family. We will go over your medical history, speak to you about your eating habits, evaluate your gums and put you on the right track to a healthier you.  We welcome new patients!  For the month of November all new patients that call our office and mention this blog will receive $50.00 of their visit.

Your Top-Rated & New Favorite Dentist In Yorktown Heights, NY

"I can’t thank Dr. Lerner and his staff enough, notably his assistant Nicole for expertly handling my mercury filling removals.I had it done in 2 phases and they took very good care of me on both occasions. The whole office is very pleasant, so professional and I look forward to my visits. On this most recent cleaning appointment, Linda did my cleaning. She was gentle and thorough. Highly recommend."

- Vanessa R.

"Excellent experience during my initial consultation. The most complete examination I have ever had by a dentist, including full body muscle testing. This testing uncovered major alignment issues with my jaw which has been causing a lifetime of misalignment throughout the rest of my body. Dr. Lerner and his staff are outside the box thinkers and I am very happy I have found them."

- Greg R.

"Very professional and compassionate. Love the use of Nucalm, eye mask, calming music, and making removing my mercury fillings a pleasant experience. Well as pleasant as can be. Thank you!!!"
