What Are The Most Common Causes For Tooth Loss?

Posted on 4/24/2023 by SRD Florence
What Are The Most Common Causes For Tooth Loss?Adults are more likely to lose their teeth due to gum disease, sometimes referred to as periodontal disease. It originates in the gums, where germs and inflammation may be found. As it advances, it eats away at the gum tissues and has the potential to eat away at the jawbone behind the gums, leaving the teeth without a foundation on which to rest.

Cavities, also known as dental caries, are holes that develop in teeth due to a bacterial infection that progresses into tooth decay. If a cavity is left untreated, it may damage the pulp located in the tooth's core, which will almost certainly end in needing a root canal or perhaps a tooth extraction.

Facial Trauma Can Also Cause Tooth Loss

It's crucial to wear a mouthguard since accidents may and do happen, mainly when playing sports. Accidents such as falls, automobile wrecks, and others may also result in tooth loss. You may take precautions to prevent the damage or loss of teeth resulting from some common types of incidents. It would be best if you never used your teeth to unscrew caps, crowns, or lids, untie knots, take off tags, or cut thread. If you want to ensure that your teeth don't become damaged, you shouldn't use them to chew ice, break nutshells, or gnaw on the popcorn kernels. These are all bad habits.
