Prevent Tooth and Bone Loss

Make an Appointment

It’s true. Your teeth, gums, and jawbone absolutely impact your whole-body health. Why? Together, they make it possible to live healthy and happy day-to-day. Imagine for a moment not being able to speak, eat, or drink properly! That’s why it’s essential to prevent tooth and dental bone loss before it becomes a problem that affects the quality of your life.

Here at SLO Smiles, our friendly dental experts recommend that all patients keep up with regular dental cleanings and exams in order to avoid any bone loss or tooth loss.

It’s good to know that each time you visit, we’re happy to offer a screening for periodontal disease as well as monitor and treat any existing conditions to prevent bone loss or tooth loss from progressing.

Our caring dentists also take the time to consider your comprehensive oral history to determine the best possible means of helping protect your teeth, gums, and jawbone.

Tooth & Dental Bone Loss Causes:
  • Periodontal disease (also known as gum disease)  
  • Medical conditions 
  • Injuries suffered 
  • Birth defects 
  • Tooth decay 
  • Removal of teeth 

    There are methods of treatment available to children and adults so they do not suffer the dietary, social, and emotional consequences of losing their adult teeth and dental bone loss.

    The advanced dental technologies of today make it possible for Dr. Ian Leopold, Dr. Nicholas Murphy, and Dr. Craig Main to serve a number of patients across San Luis Obispo (and beyond!) who once thought they had no choice but to live with dental bone loss and missing teeth.

    Curious about what treatment options are right for you? Here at SLO Smiles, our experienced San Luis Obispo dentists will guide through the possibilities and answer any questions.
