Diabetic Treatment Services by Dr. Cintron in Fort Lauderdale, Florida
As a dentist for over 20 years, I’ve found that an unhealthy mouth can make other diseases profoundly worse. We have treated patients with diabetes who after controlling gum disease, have been able to control blood sugar levels and even stopped taking medications.

Diabetes Is Increasing
Diabetes is the fastest growing disease in United States, claiming 24 million people with type 2 diabetes and one out of every three children born after 2007. The odds are if you do not have diabetes yet, you may be prediabetic and you probably know someone with diabetes.

Diabetes and Gum Disease
Diabetes and gum disease, which is an oral disease, are very dangerous together. After reaching the age of thirty, 85 percent of people have some form of gum disease. Gum disease is an inflammatory infection, that exhibits high levels of c-reactive protein levels. I compare gum disease to gangrene of the mouth. It causes bone loss, tooth loss, bite problems, bad breath, bad taste; it is a social handicap. These symptoms are not a good thing to have if you have diabetes. Diabetes and gum disease increase your mortality by eight times, increases the probability of having a heart attack by over 250%.

My entire family on my father’s side has been impacted by diabetes so I personally know the impact of diabetes in one’s life. This information represents real people, not just numbers. I have lost most of these relatives due to the complications of diabetes.

Diabetes Reversed after Periodontal Treatment
As a dentist I have personally treated people whose diabetes has been reversed after periodontal disease has been treated and controlled. It takes a team effort to get optimum health. Together, diabetes and gum disease is a bomb that makes you three times more likely to die of the combination of heart disease and kidney failure. Gum disease will make a prediabetic a diabetic.
