There is no harm in extracting a tooth in a controlled diabetic patient. If the blood sugar levels of your mother is normal then she can get her tooth extracted. In diabetic persons if the blood sugar level is not controlled there will be continous bleeding after extraction and delayed wound healing.

diabetic patients can also be treated as normal people until their sugar levelis under control. extraction can be done when diabetes is under control and maintained until the extraction socket wound heals. then everything is fine. take care of your mom.

diabetes per se is not a contraindication for tooth removal. One needs to see that sugar levels are well controlled when doing any routine dental procedure
Diabetics are more prone to some diseases and complication esp periodontal problems
Keep your sugar levels well and carry out the dental procedure

Dentist, Endodontics Dr. Manisha Rao's  Response
Hi, tooth removal or extraction can be done in a Diabetic patient provided the sugar levels are normal. Diabetes delays healing. If the sugar levels are controlled with the help of diet, medicines or insulin till the wound healing takes place, there is absolutely no risk to the patient. Betadine gargles, oral antibiotics and periodic check up will help in the wound healing. Please take advice of a physician after checking the sugar levels. If he advises to go ahead, extraction can be done without hesitation. Take care!

Hi Welcome to

Diabetes increases the periodontal problems. Diabetes is not a contraindication for tooth extraction. Tooth extraction is a stress and will temporarily increase the blood sugars. So you needs to tightly control the blood sugars.

Also you need proper oral hygiene .You need Oral antibiotics for week.
