Losing teeth can happen to anyone at any age and is often an unexpected and disheartening occasion.
Here at Redbank Plains Dental we offer a variety of different dental implant treatment options to help you restore functionality and appearance to your smile.
TOOTH LOSS CAN AFFECT YOUR HEALTH
You may be thinking that because the tooth is gone now your health shouldn’t be affected but aside from appearance, tooth loss has the capability to influence your oral health and general health.
Why you should replace your missing teeth:
- Adjacent teeth could attempt to fill the gap, creating misalignment
- Teeth can suffer decay from food accumulation in gaps
- Gums can recede or become infected
- Loss of jawbone can occur
- General feeling of illness can linger from oral infection
Depending on the nature of the loss, it is also important to factor in why the tooth came loose to begin with.
WHAT CAUSES TOOTH LOSS?
Tooth loss can be caused by a few different factors:
- Trauma for example from a sporting injury
- Poor oral hygiene
- Detrimental diet habits
The most common and most harmful cause of tooth loss is generally a result of neglecting to attend regular check-ups and not brushing and flossing regularly. This can lead to gum disease (periodontal disease) which not only affects your smile but can be devastating to your overall health if left untreated.
WHAT CAUSES PERIODONTAL DISEASE?
Periodontal disease could be a result of gingivitis. This is where the gums become inflamed or bleed and can generally be resolved by practicing good oral hygiene habits. In some cases this could be because of tooth loss where a gap has allowed bacteria to damage the gums around the area from food accumulation. Other causes of periodontal disease could be:
- Avoiding regular check-ups every six months
- Practicing poor hygiene habits (not brushing or flossing regularly)
- High blood pressure
Periodontal disease is one of the more common diseases and is also the most treatable if you take early prevention methods.
