Here at Central Park Dentists, one of the most common reasons that patients seek treatment from the professionals at our Cobble Hill dental office is to resolve issues associated with tooth loss. Tooth loss can occur for any number of reasons. One common reason that teeth are lost is because they are severely decayed. Tooth decay is a highly common dental issue occurring in adults today, and if tooth decay is not treated quickly, it can escalate to the point where the tooth falls our completely. Another similar reason for tooth loss is periodontal, or gum, disease. If periodontal disease is not treated early on, it can rapidly progress to the point where the gums begin to detach and the underlying bone in the jaw begins to deteriorate, in which case tooth loss is imminent. We also commonly see people at our Cobble Hill dental office who have lost their teeth because of trauma to the face and mouth. If you are ever in a situation in which a tooth has been knocked out, you should save the tooth if possible, and visit a dental professional as soon as possible, because it may be able to be saved and put back in place.
Tooth loss can also occur as a result of complications from certain medical conditions, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, and more. You are also at a greater risk of losing teeth if you do not brush your teeth regularly, if you smoke, and if you do not visit a dentist for regular cleanings and examinations. The experts at our Cobble Hill dental office can evaluate if you are at risk for tooth loss during your next visit with us at Central Park Dentists.
