Periodontal Disease and Osteoporosis

I found this article about Gum Disease and Osteoporosis at the Loma Linda University Faculty Dental Practices Center for Dentistry and Orthodontics,  here is the link to the article:

I would NOT say that the evidence is definitive.  But certainly it is an area for researchers to take a closer look at.

What I didn't like about the article is that the only thing it mentioned was  diagnostic x-rays for ongoing evaluation.

Prevention wasn't mentioned in the article at all.

Preventing and stopping the progress of gum disease is very important.

The book: What You Should Know About Gum Disease : A Layman's Guide To Fighting Gum Disease has some very good information that can potentially help a lot of people avoid costly treatments through prevention.   It's never too late to derive benefit from this information. 

There are just some key concepts that the average person does not know.  But if this person did know, it could make a huge difference in how much they spend on dental health treatments over the course of a lifetime.
Of course, you always want to get your regular checkups and cleanings in with your doctor and hygienist.   But, what if you had a way to prevent the costly treatments that come out of pure ignorance for a person or a family?
