My mother is suffering from tooth pain. Almost all the Tooth's becoming loose. Doctor suggested for a laser treatment. Now the problem is my mother is a diabetic patient and She is using medicine regularly but sugar levels is not exactly under control. My doubt is will there be any way to treat dental problem while maintaining sugar levels under control? If not, treating dental problem while uncontrollable sugar creates any problems in future? Please clarify my query.
Thanks in advance.

If your mother is taking the medications regularly and still the sugar levels are not in control, it means either she is not taking care of her diet properly or the dose of the medications or the medications themselves need to be changed..... you need to contact your physician for this..... although dental procedures can be performed when the sugar levels are not in actual control, but the postoperative healing will definitely be impaired if the sugar levels are not in control after the surgical treatment...... the prognosis of maintaining the teeth that have become loose and that too especially in a diabetic patient, is poor.....
Hello the dental procedures like extractions or surgical procedures are done only when sugar levels are within normal range. Please consult your physician for contol of sugar levels. Then the dental procedure has to be started...
First it's necessary to bring her sugar levels to within normal limits.
Also all procedure have to be done after your physician approves.
Then have a proper xrays done know as opg or cbct and consult your dentist.
One thing for sure if her mobile teeth are corrected or treated her diabetes level Will also improve.
Have a nice day
