What Causes Tooth Loss?

In a leading professional journal, experts have pinpointed the possible causes of tooth loss due to gum (periodontal) disease. The information came from a recent study of thousands of men and women who had lost one or more teeth as a result of trouble with their gums.

A look at the list shows that, while there are plenty of factors we can’t control, there are others we can definitely do something about. Risk factors include:

  • Being older than 35
  • Being male
  • Not getting timely, professional dental care
  • Smoking either now or in the past
  • Havingdiabetes
  • Having high blood pressure
  • Having rheumatoid arthritis

The experts added a 9th finding that front (anterior) teeth were more likely to be lost to gum disease than teeth at the back of the mouth.

UNHEALTHY GUMS AND TOOTH LOSS

The list was created by researchers who observed that gum disease was the leading reason for tooth loss among the patients studied. In fact, it is one of the world’s main causes of tooth loss, the experts noted.

Men were more likely than women to have a tooth removed. Tooth loss was also more common among patients aged 35 and older.

About 3 out of 10 patients were smokers or ex-smokers. The link betweensmoking and tooth loss might have been stronger if more information had been available on the patients’health habits and history, the researchers note.

Just 13% of all patients said they had seen a dental professional in the 6 months before their tooth extraction. Only 16% confirmed that they brushed their teeth at least twice a day.

DO OTHER HEALTH PROBLEMS AFFECT TOOTH LOSS?

Nearly 1 in 5 patients in the tooth-loss study hadType 2 diabetes. The association betweengum disease and diabetesis well-established, the researchers noted.

More than 1 in 10 patients who lost teeth suffered from high blood pressure. The study also showed a strong link between rheumatoid arthritis and tooth loss. The experts confirmed that we don’t know why these conditions may contribute to dental problems, simply noting that their findings showed an association between the two.

WHAT CAN YOU DO IF YOU’VE LOST A TOOTH?

If you’re doing everything you can to take great care of your teeth and gums, congratulations! Maintaining a healthy smile is one of the greatest gifts you can possibly give yourself.

But with all your efforts, you may still undergo a tooth extraction sometime in your life. And when that happens, Dr. Farole is ready to help by placing dental implants to restore your original teeth.

Implants are fast becoming the gold standard in dental restoration. Implants offer you these benefits:

  • They are permanent and with proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime.
  • They are anchored to the bone, so they are more secure than bridgework or standard dentures.
  • They are made to look exactly like your existing individual teeth, so they do a great job of bringing your smile back to its original look.

Mushrooms & Fried Tofu in Sesame Sauce

An Asian foodie blogger has written an article about how to prepare a meatless dish, mushrooms with fried tofu in sesame sauce. She starts with a sesame and miso sauce. Then she fries tofu. mushrooms, and bean sprouts. She adds the sauce at the end. She notes the preparation time is only ten minutes, as is the cooking time. She has included photos of the process. The blogger has added a link to a printable recipe. Two comments were recorded.

Key Takeaways:

  • The highlight of this dish is the sesame and miso sauce. It’s quite straightforward to whip up the sauce. I experimented by adding a bit of Kewpie roasted sesame dressing and see how my family liked i
  • The humble ingredients, tofu and mushrooms, soaking up the sesame and miso sauce, become very tasty and refreshing. Best of all, it only takes about 15 minutes or so to make this dish.
  • Cut fried tofu into large chunks. Blanch in boiling water for 2 minutes to remove grease. Drain well

A Most Excellent Breakfast Taco

Whisk the eggs and sprinkle with salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Add the eggs to the same skillet and cook over medium heat, stirring until the eggs are softly set, 1 to 2 minutes. Return the chorizo and potatoes to the skillet and toss with the eggs to warm through and finish cooking the eggs. If using Spanish chorizo, finely chop, then cook in oil in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over moderate heat, stirring, until browned, 4 to 5 minutes. If using Mexican chorizo, remove from casings and cook (without oil) in skillet, stirring and breaking up meat, until bubbling and completely separated, 4 to 5 minutes.

Key Takeaways:

  • On the Rick Bayless show, the author learned to prepare an excellent breakfast taco.
  • The main ingredients for the breakfast taco are chopped tomato or two, cilantro, lime, onion and habanero peppers.
  • Crack two eggs into an olive oil filled pan and break up the yolks as the egg cooks.

Before Bayless’s show, I was scared of habaneros; but using it here, it added so much to the flavor of the dish, a kind of fruity heat (the kind of heat I generate too). Add chopped cilantro, FRESH lime juice (no bottled, please), a glug of olive oil, and a pinch of salt.

Hearty Lentil, Potato and Greens Soup

Heat oil in a frypan over medium-high heat. Saute garlic and onion. Place pork slices in the pan and immediately spread into one layer, not overlapping each other. Pan-fry until both sides change colour. You don’t need to cook through the pork at this stage as it’ll continue cooking with other ingredients later on.

Push the pork to sides of wok. Add oil in the middle. Saute capsicum and oyster mushrooms. Cover and cook for 1 to 2 minutes. You’ll find some moist and steam releasing from the pork and vegetables. Keep an eye on it and don’t let it get burnt.

Key Takeaways:

  • A cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability was discovered in the link modal. Reported by Anas Roubi (qasuar).
  • A hearty, healthy soup, packed full of greens and nutrients ready to prep your immune system for the colder weather
  • but I believe filling ourselves with as much good, healthy food as possible can only be a good thing.
