ANSWER: Yes! Often we can detect the first stages of osteoporosis based on dental xrays, a review of your medical history and a comprehensive oral exam. Bone loss, excessive tooth loss, loose or ill-fitting dentures and gum disease can provide clues to the possibility of osteoporosis. Osteoporosis can also accelerate gum disease.
