Dlife says, A twice-per-year dental cleaning will lower your blood sugar as well as any diabetes pill in our arsenal
Bugs that live in your teeth and gums. Eww. Gross. The brutal truth is that bacteria live, and thrive, on sugar.

    I agree.I work for a major dental company.Also consider having an oral cancer screening ( over age 18 ) while you are in the dentist's chair. It costs less than $75 ( in most areas/not all dental insurance co. will cover it yet ) & is quick & painless. emoticon
