Common Causes Of Tooth Loss And What To Do


Posted on 1/23/2023 by Mountain State Oral and Facial Surgery
Common Causes Of Tooth Loss And What To Do When you have dental health conditions, it can lead to you having discomfort and this can impact your general body health. Therefore, maintaining oral health is significant and you should make visits to the dentist's office to ensure that you achieve and maintain optimal oral health. One of the reasons why you might have optimal oral health is tooth loss. Losing your tooth can lead to you losing your bone tissue in your mouth, and therefore you might be able to have that perfect smile that every person wishes to have.

There are several causes of tooth loss, and it is important to know what to do in case it happens. This could be critical in you maintaining your dental health in the long term.

Facial Injury


Injuries to the face are a major cause of tooth loss. For instance, people involved in contact sports such as rugby, soccer, and basketball usually lose their teeth when they get hit during a match. You can also fall down the stairs or when riding a bike or skating and you find yourself holding your tooth in your hand.

Tooth extraction


A dentist can also recommend to remove your tooth if they feel that is the best treatment for your condition. For instance, an impacted tooth such as wisdom teeth need removing to relieve you of the pain and discomfort they bring to the patient.

Periodontal disease


This is gum disease caused by infections to your gums. If left untreated, you might lose gum tissue that holds your teeth in place. In the end, you might lose teeth when they fall off.

Tooth Decay


Tooth decay leads to cavities, and this ultimately leads to tooth loss if not treated. When bacteria break down sugars in your mouth, they release acids which eat into your enamel leading to tooth decay and cavities.

What to do


Whatever the reason of your tooth loss, you should seek immediate medical attention. In the case of tooth falling off due to injury, it is important to locate the tooth, and come with it at the clinic.
