Below is an excerpt from an article found on Colgate.com that was written by Donna Pleis

An Element of Strength
The mineral, fluoride, plays an important role in building strong teeth and bones, and ultimately protecting your teeth against tooth decay. This is why fluoride has been included in toothpastes like Colgate Cavity Protection and many community water supplies. But did you know it's also found naturally in many foods? Any fluoride you ingest is absorbed and distributed throughout the body, according to the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), though most of it deposited into your bones and teeth.

Change in Taste 








Your favorite flavors might not taste as rich as your remember if you have diabetes. It can be disappointing, but take the opportunity to experiment with different tastes, textures and spices to your favorite foods.

If you have a persistent bad taste in your mouth, see your dentist or doctor.

Infections 








Diabetes affects your immune system, leaving you more vulnerable to infection. One common among people with diabetes is a yeast infection called oral thrush (candidiasis). The yeast thrive on the higher amount of sugar found in your saliva, and it looks like a white layer coating your to…

Heart Disease Linked to Gum Disease

Image
Gum Disease Can Contribute to Heart Disease and Even StrokeRecent medical research has shown that gum disease contributes to the onset of stroke, heart disease, and many other life-threatening illnesses.

The American Dental Association has stated that upwards of 8 out of 10 Americans may have periodontal (gum) disease. Percentages this extreme should warrant treating it as a national epidemic. But because tooth loss has long been thought of as merely unpleasant, not immediately life threatening, the severity of the disease has been neglected for far too long. However, things are changing. The American Academy of Periodontology has stated that "Studies found periodontal infection may contribute to the development of heart disease, increase the risk of premature, underweight births, and pose a serious threat to people whose health is already compromised due to diab…
