Bone Loss Prevention
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
