Treats such as ice cream and icy poles may cool you down on a hot summers day, but the high sugar content breaks down the enamel on you teeth, which causes tooth decay and other dental issues.

Here at Smiles Nambour, we’ve come up with a few tips and tricks to help you start the year off with perfect oral health.

Diabetes And Oral Health – The Little Known Link

Smiles Nambour | Diabetes And Oral Health The Little Known Link | Dentist Nambour Do you know that there is a link between gum disease and diabetes? Diabetics have a higher risk of developing gum disease compared to non-diabetics and the relationship appears to go both ways.

At Smiles Nambour, we want all our patients and readers to be aware of the link between the two diseases, symptoms to look for, and strategies to control them.
