Does Osteo Porosis Affect Your Teeth?

Does Osteo Porosis Affect Your Teeth?

I lost 4 bottom teeth a few years ago and I had to get a partial plate. I thought it was from grinding my teeth at night but could it also be that the gums are weakened from Osteoporosis?

My dentist told me because of having osteoporosis, that I have lost so much bone mass in my jaw, and it shows on the x-rays they have taken of my mouth over the years. He told me not to bite into apples anymore. He said to cut them up and chew them with my back teeth, because there is a chance of breaking a tooth or pulling one out.
