The Doctors are joined by Alicia, who went viral on TikTok after sharing that she lost all of her teeth, something she feels is related to being pregnant. She tells us after her dental issues, she now has snap-in dentures on her bottom and top teeth, and 10 mini dental implants.
Alicia says while pregnant, her teeth "broke out at the gum line" after they "got super soft." "When I would eat, bits of my teeth would start breaking out," she tells The Doctors. Alicia believes her dental issues intensified during her second pregnancy and says she began to experience more tooth loss during that period of time.
But is there a link between pregnancy and tooth loss?
Cosmetic dentist Dr. Bill Dorfman explains how this may have happened, telling Alicia, "Some people are just genetically predisposed to lose teeth... some people are just genetically not lucky."
The dentist notes Alicia's dental issue could possibly be related to juvenile-onset periodontal disease, which can begin in the teen years and continue into someone's 20s. Dr. Dorfman says the issue is more prevalent in women and can cause the bone that holds the teeth to "melt away." He adds the condition is "not necessarily related to pregnancy though."
Regardless of the cause of her tooth loss, Alicia tells us she decided to go public with her struggle in order to help reduce the stigma and shame related to losing teeth and to build a community of people who have restored their teeth. "The shame causes a lot of people to not look into the options and feel like they can't overcome it," she shares.
