Dr. Kumar Vadivel Alerts Patients to the Link Between Diabetes and Gum Disease.

Dr. Kumar Vadivel, DDS, FDS RCS, MS, is raising awareness about the link between diabetes and periodontal disease in recognition of Diabetes Awareness Month this November. People with diabetes have a greater risk of gum infection and disease, so it is critical that they take symptoms of the condition seriously. For those patients in Carrollton, TX, who do need gum disease treatment, Dr. Vadivel offers an advanced laser gum surgery procedure using LANAP.

Diabetes is a risk factor for many health conditions, but periodontal disease is one that is often overlooked. According to the American Diabetes Association, research has indicated that gum disease is more prevalent among people who have diabetes. Diabetics tend to be more susceptible to infections in general, including the gum infection that causes periodontal disease. Almost 26 million Americans have diabetes and face a greater risk of periodontal disease, which is why Dr. Vadivel is taking the opportunity to educate his patients on this correlation.

Periodontal disease is a serious concern because it can lead to numerous health complications. Besides tooth and bone loss, people with gum disease are at a heightened risk of developing various chronic health conditions, including heart disease and stroke. For people with diabetes, the effects of periodontal disease are especially troubling: the condition can make blood glucose levels harder to regulate, making the effects of diabetes more severe. This is why Dr. Vadivel stresses the importance of early gum disease treatment to all of his patients in Carrollton, TX. If gum disease is caught and treated sooner rather than later, many harmful health consequences can be prevented.

Dr. Vadivel offers his patients an alternative to conventional surgery in the form of the LANAP that involves the concept of no-sew after the surgical procedure. When he performs the procedure, Dr. Vadivel uses a special laser that is only absorbed by the dangerous bacteria that cause gum disease. This allows him to remove the disease without doing unnecessary damage to healthy tissue. Anyone with questions about gum disease symptoms and treatments can visit Dr. Vadivel's website or call his office to learn more. People in Carrollton, TX, who notice changes in their oral health, including bleeding, soreness, inflammation, or other signs of gum infection, can schedule an appointment with Dr. Vadivel to find out whether they need gum disease treatment.
