One of the consequences of losing a natural tooth is a loss of bone density in the jaw. It happens because the tooth’s root is no longer there to stimulate the bone. The good news is that dental implants from Wildflower Dental in Sun City AZ can prevent the loss of bone mass.
As jaw bone atrophies due to one or more missing teeth, the bone grows thinner and is not as strong. Not only that, but any remaining teeth can shift out of place. As if that weren’t bad enough, the appearance of the face is also affected: there is a sunken appearance that many patients find distressing.
Keeping your natural teeth is always best, which is one of the reasons we stress dental health so much. But it isn’t always possible. When teeth are lost for whatever reason, titanium dental implants can prevent bone recession.
They do this by mimicing the functions of a tooth root. Dental implants are titanium posts that go into the jaw bone, where they support artificial teeth and stimulate the bone, promoting its health.
The sooner you get an implant after losing a tooth, the better. The width of a jawbone can decrease by twenty-five percent within one year of the loss.
