You likely know that osteoporosis is a condition that makes bones prone to fracture as we age because they lose density and turn brittle. The wrists, hips, and spine are most commonly affected, but it can also cause a weakened jawbone, which can lead to teeth loosening and even falling out. Wearing dentures can also be difficult if the jawbone is too damaged to allow for a good, secure fit.
