This November, Dr. Richard Amato Raises Awareness of the Link Between Diabetes and Gum Disease in Monroe, CT
Date:11/11/2013

Monroe, CT (PRWEB) November 11, 2013

Richard Amato, DDS is recognizing Diabetes Awareness Month this November. Many people may wonder what dentistry has to do with diabetes, but there is a strong link between this serious illness and gum disease. The link works both ways. People who have diabetes may be more susceptible to infections like periodontitis; while an infection like periodontitis may create fluctuations in blood glucose levels. Dr. Amato, a Monroe, Connecticut Periodontist, recommends that individuals seek gum disease treatment to improve their overall health and reduce their risk of developing an illness like diabetes.

Gum disease is highly prevalent among adults in the United States. This condition starts with bacteria that naturally occur in the mouth. They accumulate on the surface of teeth in a film called plaque. When plaque is not properly removed from the tooth’s surface, it can harden into tartar and spread beneath the gum line, creating a pocket between the tooth and gum tissue where further infection can occur. When left untreated, this infection can lead to tooth loss, bone loss, and overall health issues including association with Type II diabetes, heart attack and stroke.

Diabetes is an illness that occurs when there is a problem that causes blood glucose levels to rise and stay at a level that is much higher than normal. It comes along with many health complications related to the eyes, nerves, and skin. Good oral health care including treatment of periodontitis can help reduce a person’s risk of developing diabetes.

Dr. Amato believes in offering patients the latest advancements in gum disease treatment. Accordingly, he is certified to perform the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP). LANAP is a laser gum disease treatment that is less invasive than traditional methods. The laser is selective, and is able to kill bacteria and remove diseased tissue while leaving healthy tissue intact. This healthy tissue can then reattach to the tooth’s roots and therefore eliminate the pocket between the tooth and gum tissue that was formed by gum disease.
