What causes tooth loss?2021-07-03T19:39:46+10:00

Tooth decay and periodontal disease are the most common causes of tooth loss. Tooth decay takes place when most of the tooth’s mineral makeup has been dissolved away and a hole (cavity) has formed.

Periodontal disease is an infection of the gums caused by the buildup of plaque, and its earliest stage is known as gingivitis.
