Smile Wide Forever!
Okay, so you brush your teeth, you floss, you smile into the mirror (more times than you'd like to admit), and do everything you can to avoid cavities and gingivitis. But what if it told you there's a good chance all your teeth are going to fall out anyway?
Well, this may seem like a scare tactic, but the truth is this: ten percent of people between the ages of 50-64 have no teeth left. (1)
Let me repeat that ...
Ten percent of people between the ages of 50-64 have no remaining permanent teeth.
Crazy, I know. Well, if things just got real for you, just relax. That's because new research and ALL-NATURAL ORAL CARE PRODUCTS are proving you can show off your beautiful teeth forever.
In this oral care blog we talk about what causes your teeth to fall out, what to do if one loosens, and how to PREVENT TOOTH LOSS FOR LIFE!
First things first, adult teeth are not supposed to fall out. As a matter of fact, they're supposed to last your entire life. But they are vulnerable, especially as a result of poor dental habits.
And the pain of losing your teeth can be worse than just a missing front chomper. Even missing one tooth can lead to self-confidence problems, quality of life issues, and lifestyle and health troubles. (2)
As far away as losing your permanent teeth can seem to be, you need to understand this: it's actually common. In fact, having loose permanent teeth is a common problem that affects people of all ages. (3)
FUN FACT: Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss for adults. Boost your gum protection today by using GARNER'S GARDEN 100% ALL-NATURAL ORAL CARE TRIO! (4)
Though there are many reasons for adult teeth to loosen, the end result is the same. Basically, your teeth loosen when they slowly detach from your gums and bones after losing their necessary support.
And loose teeth won't always hurt you on their own. They can also bring with them red, swollen, or bleeding gums, as well as potential gum recession. (5)
But here's a reason to relax if you've suddenly become stressed out - having a loose permanent tooth doesn't necessarily mean you're going to lose the tooth. In fact, many times loose teeth can be saved before falling out. (6)

CAUSES OF LOOSE TEETH
As mentioned before, if your permanent tooth has become loose, there's a reason for it. And the main reasons for it are gum disease and poor oral hygiene.
Without the proper oral care, bacteria and tartar can grow underneath your gums, which can lead to an infection AKA gum disease. And this deterioration can lead to your gums pulling away from your teeth, leaving them vulnerable. (7)
The reason gum disease is linked to permanent tooth loss is because your teeth are anchored to tissues and bones that your gums directly affect. And once your gums separate and the pockets between your teeth and gums become infected and deepen, your teeth may loosen. (8)

Though gum disease is a major cause of loose teeth, it isn't the only one. Another cause of loose teeth is trauma or injury to your teeth. Even though it seems obvious, getting hit in the mouth can lead to your teeth loosening.
A third cause that can lead to loose teeth is grinding. Grinding your teeth - also known as bruxism - puts a lot of pressure on your jaw, leading to loose teeth. (10)
Other activities that also add pressure on your teeth include biting irregularly and chewing on ice, which can lead to a wearing down of your teeth over time. (11)

Your entire body is connected, which means a problem in one area of your body has a major effect on the rest of you too. This is especially true if you have loose teeth.
One physical problem that can be associated with loose teeth is rheumatoid arthritis. RA is known to negatively impact your oral health and be a potential link to unhealthy teeth. (12)
There is also a scary amount of research being conducted into a potential link between tooth loss and cognitive impairment, as losing your teeth seems to be closely linked to dementia and Alzheimer's disease. (13)
FUN FACT: Periodontitis leads to tooth loss ... though it's highly preventable! Reverse gum disease and gingivitis today by using GARNER'S GARDEN 100% ALL-NATURAL ORAL CARE TRIO! (14)
Although it may seem like your mouth is separate from the rest of your physical and mental health, many factors impact it. This includes smoking, which severely impacts your periodontal health.
Another thing to consider is stress. Stress has been linked to a worsening in your oral hygiene, which can allow for plaque to build and for your teeth to lose support, then eventually fall out. (15)
And there is another cause that you can't control that can lead to gum problems - genetics. As many as 30 percent of people are prone to gum problems, which makes your ORAL CARE REGIMEN that much more important. (16)

WHAT TO DO IF YOUR TEETH LOOSEN
No matter how hard you work to protect your teeth, things happen. And some of us will still develop loose teeth. But many people don't realize that loose teeth doesn't always mean tooth loss.
The first thing to know when you have a loose tooth is to never instigate it. For example, avoid the wiggling of your teeth with your tongue or fingers, which can cause bleeding or infections. (17)
If your tooth is loose due to an injury, there are ways dentists can attempt to save your tooth, like by splinting two teeth together, which will hold things secure as your ligaments reattach and strengthen. (18)
FUN FACT: Plaque causes teeth roots to loosen. Decrease plaque formation today with the Food Grade H202 found in GARNER'S GARDEN 100% ALL-NATURAL ORAL CARE TRIO! (19)
If your tooth is loose, it's also important that you keep it clean. Though it may be hard to clean it as you normally would, you should remove the food debris and particles in your mouth immediately to avoid developing infections down the line.
Additionally, you should avoid eating foods that can stick to your teeth and yank your teeth loose even more. (20)
Now it's important to point out that loose teeth as a result of gum disease can be difficult to remedy. So, keeping bacteria AWAY from your roots and bones can keep your teeth secure in the short and long term. (21)

HOW TO PREVENT TEETH LOSS
Flossing at least once per day is also essential in reducing the risk of losing your teeth, as not flossing and brushing properly can leave behind sticky and hardened plaque that only a dentist can remove. (23)
FUN FACT: Dental caries are a form of tooth decay that can worsen over time and lead to tooth loss. Adsorb the bad bacteria responsible for tooth decay today with the Activated Charcoal in GARNER'S GARDEN 100% ALL-NATURAL ORAL CARE TRIO! (24)
Many people are also prone to tooth loss as a result of contact sports. If you're someone who may be on the wrong end of a hit to the face, be sure to wear a mouthguard, which will protect your teeth from harm and injury.
The problems that cause tooth loss are also known to worsen over time, so visiting a dental professional twice a year will help make sure that any problems in your mouth are remedied and cleaned - hopefully before the stage of tooth loss is reached! (25)
And as with many areas of health, your diet is of the utmost importance to your oral health. To prevent damaging foods from leading to tooth loss, try to cut back on foods and sodas with a lot of sugar, and try to curb your consumption of citrus fruits, alcohol, and breads with refined flour. (26)
