YOUR DAILY MOUTHCARE TREATMENT PLAN
The unique AnOxident balance mouth care range is an essential part of your daily diabetes care plan.
The products have been specially developed to protect your teeth and gums from the high levels of glucose present in your saliva which can contribute to significant diabetes-related oral problems.
This is a recognised side-effect of diabetes and can worsen as diabetes goes on. It is probably brought on by medication but may also be due to a change in your immune system.
Having dry mouth means that you have less saliva, but this doesn't mean you are any less exposed to excess salivary glucose.
Moreover, because your saliva contains important antimicrobial mechanisms to help protect your teeth and gums, having dry mouth also means you have less natural protection in your mouth which, in turn, leads to increased levels of decay and gum disease, in addition to the difficulties associated with excess salivary glucose.
Oral Thrush is a fungal mouth infection and is common in diabetics. You can recognise Thrush from white (or sometimes red) patches in the mouth and on the tongue. These patches can become painful and turn into ulcers.
They are particularly uncomfortable and problematic if you wear a denture.
