Dental visit can reveal warning signs of diabetes
from Delta Dental of New Jersey via NJ.com
Dr. Andrew Greenberger, periodontist and participating Delta Dental dentist, says you may not think twice about your teeth as a health indicator, but they could reveal clues that you're at risk for serious disease. Chances are you know someone with diabetes with nearly 26 million Americans suffering from the disease. Luckily, we have a built-in system in our body to warn us if we're at risk. In fact, it's right in our mouths. Did you know that your dentist can look in your mouth and see evidence of more than 120 diseases? Often, these are early signs or symptoms of serious health problems elsewhere in our bodies, like diabetes.
