Osteoporosis And Oral Health

Bateman Aesthetic and Restorative Dentistry

If you are a woman, you have probably heard about the high rate of osteoporosis in the country, and the state of Utah is no exception.

Did you know that several studies have suggested a connection between osteoporosis and oral healthOsteoporosis 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:

  • DetachedGumCAP
  • Ill-fitting dentures
  • Jaw bone recession and erosion
  • Problems with ordinary 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.

Doctor Bateman can identify 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.

Doctor Bateman is trained in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of the oral health problems associated with osteoporosis. Schedule a consultation by calling 801-766-4042
