You need professional care management to ensure that osteoporosis does not cause you any further dental damage.
What is Osteoporosis
This is a medical condition that involves the bones becoming a little fragile and brittle due to the loss of tissue. The major causes however are hormonal changes, deficiency of Vitamin D and calcium. It is common in pregnant women who have a deficiency in calcium, with studies revealing that pregnant women are more likely to develop dental issues during pregnancy than women who are not pregnant.
The Oral Health Connection
When your bones become weak, it could spell trouble for your oral health. Osteoporosis will cause your jawbones to become weak, and as a result, you could experience tooth loss. Teeth are attached to the jawbone, and therefore any issues with your jawbone will inevitably affect the health of your teeth.
Tell our dentists of any medications that you are using
Our dentist needs to know the medications that you are using to better tailor your treatment to your specific needs. Some medications that you are using for your osteoporosis might hinder the effectiveness of the dental treatment chosen.
