Top Causes of Adult Tooth Loss

Last updated 4 years ago

Here at the offices of Dr. Kenn Kakosian D.D.S., we know just how difficult it can be to perform everyday tasks like eating, speaking, or even smiling confidently if you are missing one or more teeth. That's why we're proud to offer cosmetic dentistry services like veneers and dental implants to restore your smile. Tooth loss occurs for a number of reasons, including trauma, periodontal disease, or congenital absence, which occurs when a permanent tooth is not present to replace a primary tooth.

Fortunately, you can help prevent tooth loss that is brought on by trauma by consistently wearing a mouthguard while playing close contact sports such as football, wrestling, or hockey. To reduce your risk of tooth loss due to periodontal disease, it is essential that you brush and floss your teeth regularly and that you meet with your dentist often for routine checkups and cleanings. To book your next appointment with Dr. Kenn Kakosian, D.D.S., P.C., or to learn more about cosmetic dentistry options for tooth loss, call (212) 661-9777.
