According to the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases, periodontal disease can have an effect on the gums and bone that support the teeth. Bacteria can break down the bone and tissue that hold the teeth in place, causing teeth to fall out or become loose.
By coming to the dentist for regular cleanings and x-rays, many times patients with low bone density can be identified in the early stages.
