Osteoporosis And Oral Health

Dr. Howard Kessner Family and Cosmetic DentistryIn this post from Dr. Howard Kessner General, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in North Dallas, we share some news with our patients, particularly our women patients. You have probably heard about the high rate of osteoporosis in the country, and Texas is no exception.

Did you know that multiple studies have suggested a connection between osteoporosis and oral health? Osteoporosis can often progress without any outward symptoms. However, there may be clues in a person’s mouth that indicate compromised bones in the rest of the body.

The following dental and periodontal factors may indicate the presence of osteoporosis:

  • Detached Gum CAP
  • Ill-fitting dentures
  • Jaw bone recession and erosion
  • Struggles with normal mouth function such as eating or speaking

Women over 50 with a family history have the greatest risk of developing the disease, but it is not unheard of in men.

Doctor Kessner can identify the presence of jawbone deterioration with x-rays and other diagnostic tools. If we suspect the possibility of osteoporosis, we can refer you to a local medical professional.

At Dr. Howard Kessner General, Cosmetic and Impalnt Dentistry in North Dallas, we offer general and cosmetic dentistry and many other services. Schedule an appointment with us today.
