Checklist for a Diabetic Patient’s Dental Visit

  1. If you have diabetes, you should let your dental professional know along with all the medicines that you take. You should also advise if you have any trouble managing your blood glucose levels.

  2. Make sure that you eat well before you visit your dentist. The best time for dental work is when blood glucose is in the normal range.

  3. Unless advised otherwise, all usual medicines must be continued between dental treatments.

  4. Unless advised otherwise, all meals should be taken normally after your dental appointment.

  5. If you are suffering with uncontrolled diabetes, discuss this aspect with your dentist and your physician before starting any dental treatment.
