The jaw bone provides a support for your teeth and structure for your face. Much like a muscle, the jaw bone relies on regular “exercise” to remain healthy and strong through the stimulation by tooth roots from activities like chewing and eating. When you lose teeth and don’t replace them, this has a direct effect on the health of the bone. The teeth and jaw bone are intertwined in the roles they play in oral function and health. Tooth loss jumpstarts a ripple effect of problems with your remaining teeth, soft tissue, and bone that will continue unless restorative measures are taken to replace teeth or rebuild bone.
Your teeth are responsible for maintaining the strength and density of the jaw bone and the loss of stimulation causes the bone to resorb and become weak, thin, and brittle. The result of tooth loss and severe bone loss is a premature aging of your facial features, but the consequences go deeper than the aesthetic. Depending on where tooth loss has occurred, it can lead to TMJ and muscle issues, difficulty chewing and speaking, and is directly related to nutritional issues and poor digestion. Rebuilding the jaw bone through bone grafting and replacing missing teeth with dental implants becomes crucial to maintaining your youthful appearance, proper dental function, and overall health and wellbeing.
Dental implants placed at our Wichita Falls and San Antonio, TX offices are the only permanent tooth replacement option that restores your tooth function and beauty while also effectively halting bone loss. Dental implants are designed to mimic the structure of your natural teeth, including the tooth roots, to restore necessary jaw bone stimulation. Able to replace any number of missing teeth in as little as one day, dental implants are considered the standard of care in tooth replacement and one of the best restorative solutions for tooth and bone loss.
