New Teeth Implants Experts In Rutherford Discuss The Most Common Causes Of Tooth Loss, 2

By Expert Author: Gina Butler

Welcome back to our four-part article series on the most common causes of tooth loss. In Part 1, we introduced the series by looking at accidental trauma and tooth decay and how teeth can become irreparably damaged or even “knocked out” entirely by these causes. Now, a dentist in New Jersey speaks to us about the biggest culprit behind tooth loss and how it has landed tens of millions of Americans in dentures.

Gum Disease

Gum disease is an advanced oral bacterial infection of the gums and the supporting structures of the teeth. It is caused by a combination of factors, but most commonly by a lifelong lack of proper oral hygiene. The subsequent build-up of bacteria and its heavy presence over the years leads to the development of deep infected pockets around the roots of the teeth. The acidic wastes produced by bacteria irritate the gums and destroy the bone and ligaments supporting the teeth. “Swollen, inflamed gums, persistent bad breath, tooth discoloration, gum recession, oral lesions and loose teeth are all common symptoms of gum disease. Without treatment, tooth loss is inevitable,” warn teeth implants surgeons in Rutherford.

There is a darker side to gum disease, though. It shares a close connection with a great variety of other illnesses, many of which are potentially fatal and all of which deteriorate one’s general health and quality of life. These range from cardiovascular and respiratory disease to diabetes, osteoporosis and Rheumatoid arthritis. Gum disease has even been linked with dementia.

So, remember, while new teeth implants can be used to address the loss of teeth, there are a myriad of additional health concerns that come with gum disease.

What can be done to prevent it?

Preventing gum disease is, in most cases, incredibly easy. By practicing a good home oral hygiene routine and going for regular scheduled check-ups with your dentist, New Jersey residents can prevent oral bacterial infection and the terrible health concerns it comes hand-in-hand with. Avoiding smoking and excessive drinking are also important.

Certain Illnesses

As it was explained in the previous topic, there are a number of terrible general health issues and diseases that share a connection with gum disease. But, this is not a one-way relationship. Just like gum disease can aggravate or even lead to the development of certain illnesses, there are also certain illnesses that can leave you more susceptible to developing gum disease: diabetes is one of them.

“Diabetes impedes your mouth’s ability to heal and to fight off infection,” explains the Rutherford teeth implants dentist. “It also leaves patients more susceptible to fungal infections and a condition called xerostomia or ‘dry mouth’. Since your saliva is your body’s natural defense against bacteria, dry mouth can be a very dangerous condition and can leave your teeth more vulnerable to cavities and decay.”

What can be done to prevent it?

“If you have been diagnosed with any serious or chronic illness, it is important that you find out the full implications for your oral health,” explains the New Jersey dentist. “By understanding the full impacts the disease, you can do what is necessary to mitigate any damage. You may also just have to accept that as, for example, a diabetic, you will have to brush more frequently, see your dentist more often and take more precautions in terms of maintaining good oral health.”
