Osteopenia Symptom #2: Receding Gums

Receding gums are a common problem affecting both women and men. Many factors can contribute to the development of receding gums, including osteopenia. As you probably know, teeth are connected to the jaw bone. In cases when bone mass is lost, the jaw bone can get affected as well, leading to receding gums.

The density of your jaw bone can be easily checked during an appointment at the dentist when your dentist performs standard panoramic x-rays while treating your dental problems. In cases when the jaw bone mass density is lower than normal, your dentist can give you an insight about the density of your bones which should alert you to get a bone density test in order to diagnose and manage osteopenia on time before osteoporosis develops.
