The loss of child’s tooth is often considered the cause of celebration because it makes way for the adult teeth which are stronger. This time is often fantasized with the arrival of tooth fairy that takes away the baby teeth and let the adult teeth to grow out. Now, the dental precautions are also changed as dentists start telling the children to remain very careful when it comes to dental health.

But, when there is an event in which an adult tooth is lost, it’s not the time that we can celebrate. In fact, it can be the matter to worry about because there is tooth growth after an adult tooth loss. In other words, bye-bye natural tooth!

Nevertheless, there is always good news now for the ones who lose their adult teeth. The modern dental restorative technology has made it very much possible for a person with lost tooth to get not only the aesthetics back but also the functionality restored. Dental implants and implant-based dental bridges can bring back the bite force not only for a tooth but also for the entire jaws.

However, it doesn’t really mean that you should now be careless about the dental health just because you can get your teeth back any time. In fact, there is nothing like the natural teeth no matter how strong is the substitutes. Therefore, knowing about the reasons for missing teeth is very much important if you want to avoid getting your teeth lost.

Common causes for the tooth loss

35
There are some common dental issues in adults that can result in tooth loss.

37
1. Gum disease is the common cause of tooth loss. But, the good news is that a gum disease gives fair amount of time to the patient before it gets serious enough to cause a tooth loss. First, it’s the gingivitis to be taken care of. Gingivitis is the first stage which is not only visible but also painful at some extent. When it gets worse, it can be turned into periodontitis which make tooth loss the real possibility.

2. Root canal infection is another common reason for the tooth loss. This infection is usually very painful, and it is the pain which can result in the patient deliberately going to the dentist to get the tooth extracted. Again, the tooth extraction is needed only when the infection cannot be cured; and root canal infection gives enough time for treatment.

3. Cavities and decay are also the reasons for the missing teeth. The cavities start with tooth decay which involves wearing out of tooth enamel. When that happens, it can result in the inner pulp to get exposed to the infection causing germs. If this process is caught prematurely, the pulp can be protected again with the help of restorative dentistry methods. Hence, cavities and decay can be treated.
