Am I at Risk of Tooth Loss?
Advanced decay and trauma can cause tooth loss. There are certain factors that may influence your risk:
- Poor oral hygiene
- Smoking or chewing tobacco
- Neglecting routine dental care
- Uncontrolled diabetes
- Inadequate nutrition
- Drug or alcohol abuse
It is highly recommended that you undergo a dental exam every six months so your doctor can catch harmful conditions, such as cavities, in their earliest stages.
