Understanding the Root Causes of Jaw Bone Deterioration
When teeth are missing, the alveolar bone, which secures the teeth within the oral cavity, ceases to receive the essential stimulus, leading to its gradual deterioration or resorption. Since the body no longer utilizes or considers the jaw bone essential, it undergoes a process of degradation and diminishment.
Preventing This with All-on-4 Implants
When a patient loses a tooth, the root of the tooth no longer transmits the pressure and force of biting, chewing, and smiling into the jawbone. Therefore, the bone below the missing tooth will begin to deteriorate and waste away when it is not stimulated.
Dental implants bond permanently with the jaw bone and gums through a process called osseointegration.
