What are systemic diseases that cause alveolar bone loss?


I have been slowly losing bone in my jaw over many years. I do not have gum disease. My dentists are perplexed. Despite getting my teeth cleaned 4X a year, they have not been able to control it. I do have a significant open bite, but x-rays do not show evidence of a traumatic occlusion. I have recently seen an endocrinologist to explore systemic causes of bone loss. I have so far ruled out sarcoidosis and osteoporosis. Are there any other diseases I should be screened for? I did find out that I was vitamin D deficient so am taking vitamin d supplements. There are no signs of inflammation on my gums. They are pink and firm.
No, I am not on fosamax. I had a dexascan and my numbers are fine. What type of autoimmune disease causes you to be allergic to your own teeth?
----------

It could be wisdom teeth coming in combined with lack of calcium/vitamin D that could cause the jaw to recede which together cause teeth compression and bite disortions. A bite disortion will cause the teeth to bite down crocked causing jaw resession from the teeth as well as could cause loose teeth or even pockets of jaw bone to disappear around the teeth roots. I had this situation and I am trying hard to save two incisor teeth. 1000mg Vitamin D daily. 1000mg calcium daily. Exercise is most important for your body will only process food that the body demands from continued exercise. Stop drinking coffe or soda. No more candy/sugar. Drink Orange Juice in morning, milk in morning and night. Rinse/Brush after each meal, and before bed. Hydrate your body with water after exercise. Change the pillow case you sleep on at least each week. Might also change pillows for this could be a nightly source or irritation.
Shower before bedtime too.  (+ info)

What are 3 diseases associated with the immune system?


I know AIDS and Leukemia are two immune diseases or disorders (i'm sot sure what the proper word here is) but any other diseases would be helpful.

Off the top of my head, I can think of a few autoimmune diseases such as Crohn's disease (attacks the gut), Multiple Sclerosis (affects the central nervous system), lupus (affects multiple organs), rheumatoid arthritis (primarily affects joints).

Allergies and asthma are also disorders associated with the immune system.

HIV progresses to AIDS.  (+ info)

What kind of diseases can you get from smoking ciggaretes off the ground?


One of my friends has this disgusting habit, and I would like to know what kind of diseases you can get from this. He says nothing will happen to him, but besides lung cancer, what illnesses/diseases can you get from smoking used ciggaretes off the ground?
----------

Depends on how old the cigarette and existing saliva is. Most diseases and viruses cannot like outside the body for extended period of time. Some Hepatitis strains can survive for several days, as can some worse strains of the flu. Honestly, I'd be more worried about the germs it has picked up off the ground than diseases. While it's not THAT big a risk, it is a risk and it's just plain gross. Try to talk him out of it.  (+ info)

I was doing some research (helping a friend) who complains of being constantly dizzy and disoriented. He had a panic attack in his car a few months ago and now everytime he gets into his car he comes close to suffering another one. However, the dizziness and disorientation (he also has problems sleeping) are constant, car or not. His parents think it's anxiety but I'm not quite sure.

What diseases does the doctor check for during a checkup?


I had to go to the doctor for a checkup and various immunizations before college. I wanted to also get tested for STDs. The thing is, I'm pretty sure I don't have any (I'm not sexually active) but I don't want any surprises like HPV from sharing lip gloss. Anyway, I went to the doctor last week for a checkup and I wanted to know what diseases the doctors check for.
----------
