Type 2 diabetes is the most common type of diabetes and is characterized by high levels of glucose (sugar) in the blood. Although some symptoms may be similar, it is a different condition to type 1 diabetes.
Unlike people with type 1 diabetes, most people with type 2 diabetes still produce insulin. However, it is either not enough to deal with all the glucose that is in their blood or their cells are unable to recognize the insulin and use it properly (this is called insulin resistance).
Type 2 diabetes usually affects people who are middle-aged or older, and obesity
Dentists identify and treat problems concerning a patient’s mouth, gums and teeth. Their duties include extracting teeth, fitting dentures and filling cavities. Some choose to specialize in areas that range from treating serious oral problems and diseases to straightening teeth and performing oral surgeries. They are assisted by dental hygienists, who complete a patient’s teeth cleaning, and by dental assistants, who usually help with record keeping and instrument sterilization.
Many people dread the dentist. When they open wide, they’re afraid what the dentist will find. Yet another cavity? Or even worse – will it be time for a root canal?
At Dr. Todd Bertman’s office, the receptionist wears a plastic face shield. So do the hygienist and the nine doctors in the practice in Manhattan’s East Village.
Dr. Bertman reopened the office two weeks ago after closing it in March in response to the coronavirus pandemic. In another change from the past, he has switched from ultrasonic cleaners that spray water and saliva into the air to laser instruments.
The dentists and hygienists wear head-to-toe personal protective equipment that they change between appointments, a time-consuming, awkward ritual that requires them to take off booties, gowns, goggles, masks, gloves and the
Dental practices are adapting how they work in and around a patient’s mouth to account for this complicated reality. Dentists are screening patients for symptoms, limiting the number of appointments in a day, implementing stringent sanitation protocols and wearing more protective equipment to guard against the respiratory disease.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization suggest that respiratory droplets expelled when an infected person coughs, sneezes, talks or breathes are the primary way the virus spreads. But the CDC reports there’s “no data available to assess the risk of SARS-CoV-2 transmission during dental practice.”
Cosmetic dentistry is generally used to refer to any dental work that improves the appearance (though not necessarily the functionality) of teeth, gums and/or bite. It primarily focuses on improvement in dental aesthetics in color, position, shape, size, alignment and overall smile appearance. Many dentists refer to themselves as “cosmetic dentists” regardless of their specific education, specialty, training, and experience in this field. This has been considered unethical with a predominant objective of marketing to patients. The American Dental Association does not recognize cosmetic dentistry as a formal specialty area of dentistry. However, there are still dentists
The idea of having someone poke around your mouth might be panic-inducing when we now know that COVID-19 spreads through droplets in the air, but dental offices in Ontario have been allowed to see patients again since June 1.
I myself went to see my dentist over the weekend after my appointment to get a filling was delayed for three months (I also had to fix an exposed nerve at the back of my mouth that made flossing and eating not fun at all). As someone who still isn’t ready to dine at a patio, let along dine inside a

Dentists and orthodontists reopening across metro Detroit have been making big investments in protective gear, technology and equipment as they work to make sure patients and staff are protected from COVID-19.
But the changes, which can vary greatly by office, are not all required and are being done at the discretion of each dentist and orthodontist, raising the question of what risks you face at your next appointment and what you need to know before you go in.
Closed lobbies, virtual paperwork, tele-health appointments, fewer patients and protective gear like disposable gowns, masks, shields and gloves are common changes among
