The loss of bone mass is one of the more serious consequences of losing a tooth. Unfortunately, it is also common. It can be prevented with a dental implant from Wildflower Dental in Sun City AZ.
Bone loss, or bone recession, happens because there is no stimulation to the jaw bone, which is ordinarily supplied by the tooth root. When more teeth are missing the bone loss is more extreme. On average, people lose twenty-five percent of the bone at the site of the missing tooth within the first year. Left unchecked, it only gets worse.
You Can Prevent Deterioration!
The bone deterioration has a direct impact on appearance. The lower part of the face gets a pronounced sag. The lower jaw begins to jut out, and deep wrinkles form around the mouth.
Fortunately, this can all be prevented with dental implants. Titanium posts implanted into the jaw act as replacement tooth roots, stimulating the bone to prevent its recession. These implants can support one or more artificial teeth that look and function like natural teeth.
