Nine Major Culprits For Tooth Loss Identified By Researchers

Periodontal disease is one of the main causes of tooth loss worldwide and is the leading cause for majority of the tooth extractions (those with periodontal disease lost 2.8 teeth versus 1.8 teeth lost for those without// periodontal disease). It has now been found out from research that certain groups of people exhibit increased susceptibility to periodontal destruction than others.

The study analyzed the effects of several risk factors believed to be responsible for the condition out of which nine have been held as major risk factors. These include age, male gender, smoking, lack of professional maintenance, inadequate oral hygiene, diabetes mellitus, hypertension, rheumatoid arthritis and anterior tooth type. The most common medical history finding in all patients was diabetes mellitus at 19.2 percent followed by hypertension at 13.6 percent. Men lost their teeth due to periodontal reasons more than women, with 33 and 27 percent respectively. Smokers both past and present accounted for almost 31 percent.

Surprisingly, 39 percent reported that they have never had a dental prophylaxis or periodontal maintenance visit. In addition, only 16 percent of the patients reported of brushing their teeth twice or more on a daily basis. Almost 60 percent either never brushed their teeth or used a toothbrush irregularly.

It is very vital to assess the risk of periodontal disease so that appropriate preventive measures can be instituted accordingly. Periodontal therapy has proven to be effective in reducing the rate of tooth loss and establish the importance of patient compliance with maintenance therapy and proper oral hygiene measures.
