TM Prosthodontics Now Offering Specialized Dental Care Plans For Patients With Diabetes

TM Prosthodontics, one of the leading Miami dentists, announced today that the practice now offers personalized dental plans for people with diabetes.

In addition to factors such as smoking and poor nutrition, diabetes is a leading factor that impacts the health of teeth, gums and the entire mouth. Diabetics are at a higher risk for oral health problems because of poorly controlled blood sugar levels, which can impair white blood cells, the body's main defense against bacterial infections.

“People with diabetes have special needs when it comes to caring for their teeth and gums,” said Dr. Tal Morr, the owner and primary dental practitioner of TM Prosthodontics. “Diabetics are more susceptible to problems such as dry mouth, gum inflammation and thrush. Our practice can work with patients and their primary diabetes care doctors to form a dental care regimen that will reduce – and hopefully eliminate – the effects of these conditions.”

For patients with diabetes, Dr. Morr works with their medical doctors to gain an understanding of each patient’s HgA1C level, how well controlled his or her diabetes has been in the past, and any medications that are currently being taken. He also obtains a general medical history before performing any treatment for periodontal disease or other disorders of the teeth or gums. This is an important step in determining whether a patient should use pre-surgical antibiotics, change meal schedules, or adjust the timing of insulin dosages.

In addition, Dr. Morr helps diabetic patients optimize routine care regimens for their gums and teeth or dentures. This includes regular professional cleanings, the use of antibacterial mouth rinses, and a schedule for at-home brushing and flossing.
