The link between tooth loss and frailty

A recent study has shown that older adults who have fewer than 20 of their natural teeth are more likely to experience signs of frailty in their joints and muscles.

Key takeaways:

– A lack of teeth can lead to difficulty chewing, resulting in people avoiding certain foods and becoming deficient in certain nutrients.

– The link with use of dentures is unclear.

– Speak to your dentist if you are concerned about tooth loss and frailty.

“The findings highlight the need for older people to maintain the ability to chew effectively in order to get nutrients necessary to stave off musculoskeletal frailty.”
