What causes bone loss?

Bone loss is quite common, frequent and is usually a result of either missing teeth or Peri-implantitis or advanced periodontitis.

Missing Teeth

Right in the first 12 months after a tooth loss, 25% of the bone loss has been reported and it continues to wear away with passage of time. In Normal situation, your jawbone is supported, strengthened and preserved due to presense of tooth. When the tooth s extracted, the pressure and biting forces are no longer transmitted to the bone around the tooth, as a result the bone resorbs.

Gum Disease

In the case of periodontitis or peri-implantitis, the bacteria colonizing in your gums and mouth will gradually eat away your underlying jawbone that connects the tooth (or implant) to the bone.

What are the symptoms of bone loss?

Loose teeth

Shrinking gums

New gaps between your teeth

Bad breath

Pain when chewing

Swollen or bleeding gums

Is bone loss in the jaw reversible?

Bone loss if left untreated can cause irreversible damage. If it is left untreated, the bone in your jaw and around your teeth will continue to resorb, leading to tooth loss, severe gum disease, bad breath and pain. There is good news! In most of the cases, dental bone loss can be stopped. And with expert dental care, you can actually regenerate bone and reverse bone loss.

Everyone was nice, professional and able to answer any questions I had. If you want people who are passionate and care about your wellbeing, look no further.
