Everyone loves a beautiful smile, but sometimes things go wrong with your dental health and you could suffer from tooth loss.
Periodontal disease – also known as gum disease – is one of the leading causes of tooth loss for adults over the age of 35. Luckily, with help from an expert dentist, tooth loss and periodontitis can be dealt with in a number of ways.
Here at Museum Dental suites, our team of specialists can help you understand the causes of tooth loss and gum disease, as well as suggest ways to improve your oral health to prevent teeth from falling out. Meanwhile, for those who have already lost teeth, or have unhealthy teeth that cannot be saved, we can help to re-create your beautiful smile with a broad range of cosmetic treatments.
If left untreated, periodontal disease can lead to deterioration of the structures that hold your teeth in place. Certain factors, such as genetics, diet, using tobacco products, certain medications, stress and a weakened immune system can increase your risk of gum disease.
However, it’s also important to note that periodontal disease isn’t the only reason that you may suffer from tooth loss. Other causes can include:
The best way to prevent periodontal disease and tooth loss is to take good care of your teeth. Regular brushing and flossing are a must, while visiting your dentist twice a year will help to flag up any potential problems.If you’ve already suffered tooth loss, or teeth need to be extracted, cosmetic dentistry can be used to save your smile. Popular treatments include implants and bridges, depending on your situation while dentures could be another option to consider.
Whether you’ve suffered from tooth loss, or are looking to prevent periodontal disease and its associated problems, proper dental care is key.
