Tooth Loss & Periodontal Disease

Tooth Loss & Periodontal Disease Treatment in London

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.

What Causes you to Lose Teeth?

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:

  • Facial injuries
    Road traffic accidents, falls and contact sports are all common causes of tooth loss, as the trauma can cause fractures above the gum line, as well as broken teeth.
  • Chronic illness
    A number of chronic illnesses and diseases have been found to be associated with tooth loss and periodontitis. These include cardiovascular disease, diabetes, dementia, kidney disease and certain types of cancer. While the relationship between tooth loss and these other conditions isn’t always fully understood, it’s a good idea to let your dentist know if you have been diagnosed – then they can help you take steps to reduce the chances of losing any teeth. Good dental hygiene can also play a part in helping you to keep the rest of your body healthy.
  • Osteoporosis
    This particular disease is known for its effect on bone density. Although osteoporosis is most commonly associated with the spine, hips, pelvis and arms, it can also weaken the bone structures that hold your teeth in place, causing them to eventually fall out.
  • Pregnancy
    Women who are pregnant are at a higher risk of periodontal disease due to a variety of factors, such as hormone fluctuations. In addition, the body needs a higher intake of calcium during pregnancy and breastfeeding, and if a woman is not getting an adequate supply of the nutrient, it could lead to dental problems.

Prevention and Treatment Options

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.

reviews-star.pngHave been coming to museum dental to see Dr Shakir for 4/5 years now, can’t stress enough how happy I am to have found this practice. The results of my Invisalign are perfect, and all the future treatments I’ve had with him have all been excellent and painless. If you’re in need of dental treatment please don’t bother going anywhere but Museum. Thanks to Dr Shakir and his team.

reviews-star.pngThe Museum Dental Suites team’s availability, warmth, and high-quality care in a very stressful and challenging dental emergency situation was incredible. We were in the city for a short time just days before I had to deliver a presentation at a large conference in Berlin when a crown on a live tooth came loose! Of course, this was on a Saturday evening to boot. In short, the team was able to get us in the next morning, get my crown not just comfortably but securely re-seated for the duration of the trip, literally making it possible to complete our journey safely and happily.
