I had to find a new dentist.. The Dentist talked about diabetes and how important it is to maintain good oral care etc etc…Then we talked about cleaning. That I will need to have a deep cleaning (scaling). And a regular cleaning would be a waste of time. The Dentist states my A1C must be under 10.0. because of possible infection. At this time A1C is over that number. I know it will take 3 months before I can test again and hopefully be under 10.0. I feel anxiety that cleaning can't get started right away, one side is done at time.. I have really good teeth and had T2 diabetes for over 30yrs. I have had this type of dental cleaning done in past with no problem. Its really hard for me to stay discipline and manage my diabetes. Know that my diabetes is affecting how my oral care is done. I'm feeling upset about the whole situation. I'm currently taking insulin and working closely with my Doctor, by the way he agree with the Dentist. I don't want to blow- off my dental care. I know must get my A1C down. I feel overwhelmed.
