This health news article reviews the leading causes of tooth loss.  There are some elements that are within an individual’s control, while others cannot be avoided.  Some of the risk factors include:

  • Being over age 35
  • Never visiting the dentist
  • Smoking
  • Having diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Being male
  • Not maintaining oral hygiene

Periodontal disease is the leading cause of tooth loss.  Periodontal disease can result from any of the risk factors listed above and can be exacerbated when poor oral care is also part of the equation.

Dr. Jose Valenzuela is passionate about raising awareness about periodontal disease for his patients.  He believes in the power of maintaining good oral health, and works with his patients to ensure that they know how to properly take care of their teeth.

While some factors of tooth loss cannot be avoided, such as age and sex, there are many factors that can be taken into your own hands to keep your teeth healthy.  Practice good oral hygiene, quit smoking, and visit Dr. Jose Valenzuela for your regular dentist visits.
