Ask a Dentist and Get Your Dental Questions Answered
Welcome .I will do my best to answer your question.I am not a great typist,be patient and feel free to ask if anything is unclear. Gum recession is directly related to bone loss. The most common cause of bone loss is periodontal disease. Bone loss can also occur from abnormal pressure on teeth that have no support due to the non-replacement of missing teeth. The first thing to do to stop any further recession would be to have a good thorough cleaning and then replace all of the missing teeth with partial dentures. After teeth are extracted the alveolar bone, the bone that supports the teeth disappears over time. Dentures are made over the cortical bone and therefore gum recession really is not a concern here. So having dentures made is not a cure for gum recession it really is not related at all. Does any of this make sense to you?
I have lost 7 teeth with 2 more that are loose...agine, will Dentures stop the problem or is this more serious?
