What You Should Know about Bone Resorption

Posted on 2/27/2016 by Leslie Davis
A man suffering from a missing tooth. Losing a tooth will have a variety of negative consequences. In terms of your appearance, you may be self-conscious by the new gap your lost tooth has created, and this may lead you to avoiding social situations or smiling.

However, a missing tooth can also have wider reaching effect on your oral health system, especially when it comes to bone resorption.

What is Bone Resorption?

Bone resorption is a common problem associated with tooth loss, and it involves the jawbone being reabsorbed by the body. This happens because the teeth are responsible for stimulating the jaw bone, and once they are gone, this stimulation also ceases.

Unfortunately, once your jawbone reabsorbs you can have problems keeping the rest of your teeth in place, and the appearance of your face may begin to change, as well. This process can also affect the stability of other prosthetics that you might have in your mouth, including bridges and removable dentures.

What Can Be Done about Bone Resorption?

In order to prevent bone resorption after you have lost a tooth, it is important to find a restorative solution that will help to stimulate the jawbone. Unfortunately, dentures don't often do the trick, but dental implants are a good solution. This is because your dental implants will go through a unique process known as osseointergratoin.

A dental implant will include a textured rod made out of titanium that will be implanted into your jaw bone. Over time, the bone will fuse around the implant, providing the stability that your new tooth will need.

Additionally, by mimicking the teeth, the dental implant will stimulate the jaw bone, making it significantly less likely that you will need to deal with bone reabsorption and its negative effects.

If you have lost teeth and are wondering if dental implants might be a good way to save your jaw bone, please contact us for an appointment.

excellent care and attention

Once again, I want to thank you for all the excellent care and attention you so masterfully extended to me last year. I walked in terrified, with a tooth falling out, and left after wonderful treatment- better educated and with a transplant and confidence.

I have highly recommended you to my family and friends and join your many fans and satisfied patients.
