What causes tooth loss?
- Age: Overtime, teeth and the tissues that hold them in place wear down and lose their strength and resilience. Signs of past diseases and bad habits also accumulate, contributing to their weakening;
- Inappropriate treatment in the past: Many older people bear the scars of less appropriate dental care when they were younger. For example, extractions have long been used as a way to treat diseased teeth; Poorly treated oral diseases: If not properly treated, dental infections and periodontal diseases can deepen and spread, causing irreversible damage and even tooth loss;
- Poor oral hygiene: A proper and consistent hygiene routine (brushing after meals and at bedtime and flossing daily) is the key to a healthy smile. Without it, bacteria can more easily proliferate and cause infections.
