Brusha, Brusha, Brusha!

Diabetic Tips

IMG_1143

To be honest, I never knew how important it is to have healthy teeth and gums especially as a type 1 diabetic. The last time I saw my dentist, he actually told me that there is a big correlation between gum health and having type 1 diabetes. I didn’t know that people with diabetes can have a greater supply of sugars, starches, and acid built up on their teeth rooting from higher blood sugar levels. So people with diabetes are more at risk for gum disease, but that doesn’t have to scare you! As long as you are taking care of your diabetes and your teeth/gums the best you can, you are doing great! This is why good diabetes management is so crucial and helps give great smiles!

In the past, I have personally struggled with remembering to take care of my gums (aka like flossing.. why is that simple step so hard to remember?!) I always try the best I can to maintain a proper oral care routine and use the right products like Crest Gum Detoxify to keep my mouth healthy. I personally love to use this toothpaste because it seeks out bacteria in hard to reach places with superior technology to neutralize harmful bacteria, even below the gum line. It has a cooling refreshing feeling during and after brushing which makes me feel so fresh and protected! It makes me feel good that I can significantly improve gum health by using this toothpaste to get clinically proven healthier gums.
