Diabetes is a disease that affects the body in many ways. It can compromise the kidneys, eyes, nerves, heart as well as the mouth. The most common oral implication associated with diabetes is gum disease. If not treated it can lead to tooth loss. Other oral problems caused by diabetes are xerostomia (dry mouth), oral fungal infection (better know as thrush), and poor healing. Which, in turn, can cause additional problems for denture wearers.

Keeping your mouth healthy with diabetes

🦷 Brush and floss your teeth at least twice a day

🦷 Keep dentures and partials clean by cleaning them after each meal

🦷 Do not smoke; smoking causes gum disease, dry mouth, and poor healing

🦷 If you have dry mouth , drink more fluids, you could also try chewing sugar free gum to help increase saliva flow

🦷 Speak to your denturist about alternative treatments for dry mouth

🦷 Because an untreated sore spot can lead to further complications such as infections, it is important to get sore spots check and adjusted immediately by your denturist.

Cleaning Dentures 🦷

Cleaning your dentures with the proper techniques and products is important in keeping your dentures looking as good as the day you got them.  Here are a few tips for keeping your dentures clean of plaque, stains, and odours:

  1.  Fill your sink with a little water to avoid any breakage or chipped teeth while cleaning your denture.
  2. Use room temperature or cold water to clean your denture (hot water can warp your denture).
  3. Use a non-abrasive denture cleanser and denture brush to brush your dentures on the tissue side(inside) and around your teeth.  To get between teeth, use a tapping motion and angle your brush. Denture cleaners that are safe for cleaning your prosthesis are Polident denture paste, Polident foaming cleanser, liquid soap, or oxyfresh non-fluoride toothpaste.
  4. Place your denture in water or a soaking solution overnight or when not wearing it. Avoiding doing so might dry out your denture and cause it to be brittle. 
  5. A denture-soaking solution will disinfect your denture to kill the bacteria and fungi that spread in your denture. Types of disinfectants may include Polident tablets, Novadent, or other denture-soaking solutions. Be sure to only use denture-safe soaking solutions.
  6. Using a soft-bristled toothbrush, brush your gums, cheek, and tongue to remove plaque and stimulate circulation to help keep your gums healthy. 
    In the morning rinse and brush your dentures well to remove any remaining residue.

dry mouth bad breath

 

One of the leading causes of oral malodor can come from xerostomia (dry mouth).  Xerostomia better known as dry mouth is a common occurrence in many people.  One of the contributing factors to dry mouth is medication such as certain heart medication, antidepressants.  Stress, smoking, and age are also things that can cause xerostomia. 

Saliva is a very important bodily function.  Saliva washes out the mouth of food debris, sugars, and bacteria.  Without saliva food cannot be easily washed away therefore the starch and sugars with remain on your teeth longer causing possible plaque buildup, thus leading to tooth decay and possibly gum disease and ultimately causing a foul odor from your mouth and or tooth loss.  Bacteria need to be constantly washed away.  Without saliva, bacteria will stay in the gums, between teeth, and on the surface of the tongue.  These bacteria will then break down and produce volatile sulfur compounds resulting in irritation of the tissues and bad breath.

The first step to try and teat bad breath is to eliminate the source although sometimes the answer is not that easy if the cause of xerostomia is age or medication.  Therefore, keeping your mouth clean and using mechanical techniques for getting rid of debris with a tongue scraper and tooth brush are of the utmost importance.  Using alcoholic based mouth washes like scope or Listerine can cause further xerostomia and even further irritation due to its high alcohol content.  A non-alcoholic, saliva promoting mouth rinse such as Biotene or oxyfresh are the best options to promote good oral health.
