Bone Loss Prevention

If you are currently fighting gum disease, you may be at risk of bone loss. It is important to preserve your jawbone and bone tissue to avoid losing teeth or needing a bone graft. Our dentist, Dr. Ward Whitaker, and our team have provided guidelines for you below to read in order to understand how to keep your jawbone and surrounding bone tissue healthy and intact. Call Custom Dental Care & Med-Spa at 813-876-6930 for more information about bone loss prevention in Tampa, Florida.

Boss loss is mainly caused by periodontal or gum disease. The harmful bacteria from gum disease can destroy bone tissue surrounding teeth, making them more prone to fall out or rot. Bone loss prevention means keeping your jawbone and bone tissue strong and healthy in order to prevent weakness and bone deterioration. You need strong bones in your mouth to keep your oral health intact and be able to eat and speak normally.

There are several simple steps you can take to prevent bone loss:

  • Brush your teeth twice daily and floss your teeth once daily
  • Visit our dentist every six months for a dental cleaning and exam
  • Eat a balanced diet and incorporate calcium and vitamin D into it
  • Avoid smoking
  • Visit the dentist for scaling and root planing, if needed, to remove harmful bacteria from your gums
Dental implants are also a good option to prevent bone loss for those who have lost teeth due to gum disease and are at risk of losing jawbone mass. Dental implants will provide the pressure needed to keep your jawbone from deteriorating and keep it strong and healthy.
