Osteoporosis And Oral Health

Dental Care Today PC - E. Dale Behner DDSIf you are a woman, you have probably heard about the high rate of osteoporosis in the United States. The state of Indiana is no exception. Did you know that multiple studies have suggested a connection between osteoporosis and dental health? Seeing us at Dental Care Today in Fishers has never seemed more important.

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 conditions 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 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 local medical professional.

At Dental Care Today in Fishers, our services include general and cosmetic Dentistry. Make an appointment with us today.
