Osteoporosis happens once the reabsorption causes the bones to reach a fracture threshold. Any fall or lifting action that would not ordinarily bruise or strain the common person would break one or additional bones in somebody with severe osteoporosis. Osteoporosis most commonly happens in postmenopausal women. Some risk factors include age, menstrual status, smoking, sedentary lifestyle caffeine use, and alcohol consumption. Tearing the anterior cruciate ligament ACL is referred to as an athletes nightmare because of its devastating effects. People ages are most at risk.
Osteoporosis is the complicated disease of bones or the syndrome which is the result of other diseases which reduces the quality of bones and increases the chance of their fracture. There are many factors, which can cause osteoporosis in a human being. First of all it is the age, as with the run of time the organs, including bones lose their quality and the disease appears. Then, certain people have the genetic weakness to the disease. For example, the representatives of the European race are considered to be the most vulnerable to osteoporosis.
Thus, over time, there is loss of total bone volume. While everyone experiences slow, gradual loss in bone volume after age 30, those with osteoporosis have accelerated loss. Describe the microscopic features of osseous tissue that normally help long bones withstand lateral stress without breaking.
Objectives: The purpose of this case-control study was to determine whether the radiographic appearance of the mandibular cortical bone in patients who were elderly and noninstitutionalized was related to a self-reported history of osteoporotic fractures. Study design: Patients who had a billing statement at the School of Dentistry dated between and , who were older than 60, and who had a panoramic radiograph were invited to be interviewed regarding fracture history circumstances and year of fracture and risk factors for osteoporosis. Blinded to case-control status, we evaluated the mandibular cortex on a panoramic radiograph and classified them as normal even and sharp endosteal margin , moderately eroded evidence of lacunar resorption or endosteal cortical residues , or severely eroded unequivocal porosity. In addition, cortical thickness was measured below the mental foramen.
