Tooth loss can result in a loss of jaw bone and other teeth to shift. Maintaining regular appointments with your dentist can help prevent some of the main causes of tooth loss.
- Poor oral hygiene, including insufficient brushing of teeth, flossing and dental check-ups, can cause oral health problems leading to tooth loss.
- Gum disease is the primary cause of tooth loss, resulting from inflammation or infection in the gum tissue.
- An impact trauma knocking a tooth out can be unavoidable, but quick treatment from a dentist may save the tooth.
