As we all know, with the reduction of kidney function in kidney failure, patients will suffer from various symptoms and complications. However, some patients are complaining about teeth falling out. Well, is there a relationship between teeth falling out between kidney failure?
A study reported that people with kidney failure and those on dialysis are more likely to have periodontal disease and other oral health problems than the general population. Because kidney failure patients have weakened immune systems, they are more likely to be affected by infections. Buildup of bacteria in the mouth can cause infection.
Bone loss in the jaw can occur in those with kidney failure. Because of the impaired kidney function, kidneys are unable to remove excessive phosphorus out of body, then calcium imbalance will contributes to loss of calcium from the bones resulting in weak bones. Weak bones can cause teeth to become loose and potentially fall out. Though the use of some western medications may also cause the loose teeth, weak bones becomes the most common cause of teeth falling out in kidney failure patients.
In that case, the best way to help prevent bone loss is to make sure calcium and phosphorus levels stay within the goal range. While the best way to make these levels stay into the normal range is to make kidneys work again, that is to say, to recover kidneys’ own function.
