Bone loss
My dentist is concerned about bone loss on teeth.

I am only 40 years old and this is a recent thing. I work in a stressful, target driven environment. Can this be a factor?

What can be done?

Sandra, I doubt that your work environment has anything to do with it. It might be that your stress causes you to grind your teeth and that this causes the problem, but I think it’s more likely to be due to osteoporosis or another systemic problem. The best would be to see a specialist physician and have it sorted out. Good luck.
