What does a diabetes dentist do?
At Singh Smile Care, we work with patients who are dealing with a variety of complex medical needs. We specialize in working closely with your physician to provide you with the dental care that is most appropriate for their overall health and wellness.
Along with your primary care doctor, we will help you make dental choices that are good for your mouth and your overall well-being. Of course, we provide routine dental services such as cleanings and cavity fillings, but we can address your specific needs by:
- Helping you establish an effective personal dental hygiene routine.
- Communicating with your doctors to make sure that the types of dental treatments we choose do not interfere with your diabetes treatment.
- Using gentle and effective dental treatments that don’t unnecessarily aggravate the delicate tissues of your mouth.
- Advising you about the potential problems with oral surgery. You may have issues with healing after surgery, so it may be necessary for you to take special precautions before and after surgery.
Your oral health is our first priority, but we need to be certain that the treatments we provide enhance your overall health as well. By care-pairing with your specialist, we can ensure that all your needs are met. Please contact our office for more information.
