New Jersey Cosmetic Dentist, Dr. Thomas Streko, Discusses How Diabetes and Dentistry Are Connected
Dr. Thomas Streko, D.M.D., New Jersey cosmetic dentist, recently wrote about how saving your teeth can actually save your life.
Westfield, NJ. – January 31, 2011 – One of New Jersey’s leading cosmetic dentists, Dr. Thomas Streko, recently published an article on his website, www.DrStreko.com titled “Are You Diabetic? See Your Dentist” In the article, Dr. Streko explains how the problems controlling blood sugar caused by both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes affect the mouth in various ways.
Dr. Streko writes, “Diabetic Dental Care is dental care that always takes the patient’s diabetes into account. A Diabetic Dental Care dentist will often work with a patient’s medical doctor to come up with a care plan that works for them. This means knowing what medications the patient is currently taking, being aware of the patient’s blood sugar levels during treatments, and taking their condition into account when scheduling any oral surgery or other serious procedures.”
“With regular dental care performed by the right dentist, even diabetics can enjoy beautiful, healthy smiles for years to come. So if you suffer from diabetes, make sure you trust your dental health to a diabetic dental care specialist. You and your smile deserve it,” concludes Dr. Streko.
