Osteoporosis and Oral Health

Posted on 3/8/2021 by Todd Jorgenson
Osteoporosis and Oral HealthTooth loss and bone diseases are health conditions that affect several men and women, especially in the older age groups. Osteoporosis, as you may know, reduces your bone density. As a result, your bones become weak, fragile, and more susceptible to fractures even from a minor injury.

Osteoporosis mostly affects the bones in your hip, leg, wrist, and spine. However, the disease can have more widespread consequences on other bones in your body as well. For instance, your jawbone can weaken if you have osteoporosis. As a result, your teeth may become prone to chipping, breaking, or even falling out altogether.

If you have osteoporosis or any other bone disease, it's essential to have a periodontist check your teeth regularly. At East Valley Implant & Periodontal Center, Dr. Todd Jorgenson and can perform an oral exam to help ensure your medical condition does not affect your dental health.

What Does Bone Density Have to Do With Dental Issues?


The alveolar bone is the part of your jawbone that supports the position of your teeth. The dental alveoli are small sockets in the alveolar bone where the teeth sit. Studies show that there is a direct relationship between the alveolar bone mass density and overall tooth strength. In other words, a loss in alveolar bone density increases tooth mobility. That is, it can cause loose and wiggly teeth.

People with exceptionally low bone density are, therefore, at high risk of experiencing partial or even complete tooth loss.

A weak and fragile jawbone can also lead to other dental issues. For example, osteoporosis can reduce the effectiveness of certain oral procedures, particularly cosmetic treatments, due to ill-fitting or loose dentures.

Bone Health and Periodontal Disease


Poor bone health can also increase your risk of developing gum diseases like gingivitis and periodontitis. This is mostly because the decreasing mineral density of the alveolar bone can create new spaces between the teeth and gums. Bacteria can grow in these open spaces, resulting in a chronic infection that further weakens your teeth.

Steps for Ensuring Healthy Bones


Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is essential for keeping your bones and teeth strong. Eat a nutrient-rich and well-balanced diet, exercise regularly, and make sure you get the required amount of calcium and vitamin D.

If you suffer from bone disease or experience any dental issues like loose teeth, receding gums, or easily chipped tooth, visit East Valley Implant & Periodontal Center without delay. Call (480) 376-2848 to schedule your appointment today.
