Diabetes and dentistry
Welcome to the Dentaljuce Diabetes and Dentistry course, an expert-level programme designed to enhance your understanding of the intricate interplay between diabetes and oral health.
Diabetes, a chronic condition characterised by high blood sugar levels, significantly impacts various aspects of general health, including oral health. This course looks at the complexities of diabetes, covering both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes, their pathophysiology, management, and implications for dental care.
The course includes understanding the oral manifestations commonly seen in diabetic patients, such as xerostomia (dry mouth), an increased tendency for infections, and delayed wound healing.
It provides comprehensive insights into dental treatment considerations for diabetic patients, ensuring you can plan and execute dental care with an understanding of their unique needs.
A critical aspect of this course is managing diabetic emergencies in the dental setting, equipping you with the skills to recognise and respond to situations like hypoglycaemia during dental treatments. With a blend of theoretical knowledge and practical guidance, this course prepares dental professionals to provide the highest standard of care for patients with diabetes, enhancing both patient safety and treatment outcomes.
If you're not yet a member of Dentaljuce, we highly recommend you to join and gain access to our comprehensive course on diabetes and its relationship with dentistry.
