Preventing Bone Loss

Prevention is always better than the cure! Proper dental care and oral hygiene is essential to prevent bone loss. Combining daily brushing of your teeth twice a day and flossing your teeth daily along with annual dental cleanings will ensure a lifetime of healthy teeth, gums and bone. A healthy diet and lifestyle free of smoking and avoiding excessive alcohol intake are all great habits to keep your teeth and gums healthy.

Periodontal disease and tooth bone loss are the most common causes of bone loss. Another cause of bone loss is due to damage caused by trauma, accidents, injuries, assaults.
