Diabetes


Did you know that if you have diabetes, you're 2X more likely to develop gum disease?

Diabetes makes the body more susceptible to bacterial infection, so people with diabetes have a decreased ability to fight germs that invade the gums.

The good news is that brushing with Colgate Total® is a simple step you can do every day to take charge of your gum health because it actually helps improve gum health in as little as 4 weeks.*
