There are many reasons why individuals lose teeth over a lifetime. Some of these are due to lifestyle habits, such as not seeing a dentist on a regular basis. Others can arise from underlying conditions or sudden trauma. 

Let's quickly summarise a handful of situations which could lead to tooth loss:

  • Poor brushing and flossing techniques.
  • Ignoring a cavity or gum disease.
  • An injury to one or more teeth, which can occur in sports or an accident.
  • Smoking and using tobacco products
  • Excess sugar in the diet, leading to cavities.
  • Overall bad diet without nutrients necessary to support healthy gums and teeth.

To avoid tooth loss – and keep teeth and gums healthy – see your dentist regularly for exams and cleanings.
