Osteoporosis And Oral Health in Richardson TX

May 11, 2018

The Richardson Dentist-Kerry M. Goad, DDSIf you are a woman, you have probably heard about the high rate of osteoporosis in the country. Numerous studies have suggested a connection between osteoporosis and oral health. Osteoporosis can often progress without any outward symptoms. At The Richardson Dentist, we’re alert to the oral health clues that indicate compromised bones in the rest of the body.

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

  • DetachedGumCAP
  • Ill-fitting dentures
  • Jaw bone recession and erosion
  • Difficulty with basic mouth function such as eating or speaking

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

We can ascertain 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 medical professional.

At Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry, we’re trained in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of oral health problems associated with osteoporosis. We also treat gum disease, and provide general and restorative dentistry.
