Dr. Manning is phenomenal and extremely ethical. She repaired work that another dentist did when she could have told me I required the work to be completely redone as another dentist did. Her office is inviting. Her staff is kind, professional, and efficient. She’s def the only dentist I’ll see going forward. I also love Crystal her hygienist. Overall, this is an ethical and high-quality practice that provides the highest standards of care.
People who suffer from diabetes are more susceptible to developing infections than those without the condition. It’s not widely known that periodontal disease is often considered the sixth complication of diabetes — particularly when the diabetes isn’t under proper control.
Periodontal disease (often called gum disease) is a progressive condition that often leads to tooth loss if treatment is not promptly sought. Periodontal disease begins with a bacterial infection in the gingival tissue which surrounds the teeth. As the bacteria colonize, the gum pockets become deeper, the gums recede, and periodontitis eventually attacks the underlying bone tissue.
Diabetes is a serious condition characterized by too much glucose (sugar) in the blood. While type II diabetics are unable to regulate insulin levels, which means excess glucose stays in the blood, type I diabetics don’t produce any insulin at all.
