What’s the Threat of Osteoporosis? Other Consequences.

Although trabecular bone loses density at a faster clip, compact bone eventually becomes vulnerable, as well. As osteoporosis advances, bones with a high proportion of compact tissue — such as the tibia (shin), humerus (upper arm), and femur (thigh) — are fractured with increasing frequency.

Ribs may be broken from the force of a cough. Although the jawbone may not snap, it is not exempt from bone loss. As the jaw becomes increasingly porous, it provides less support for the teeth anchored into it. The result can be dental problems such as loose teeth and ill-fitting dental plates.
