Bone resorption, also known as bone loss, is a natural process that can occur when a tooth is lost. If multiple teeth are lost, and not replaced with dental implants, then patients can experience future gum and teeth problems because of bone loss. However, dental implants and continued dental care in San Jose can prevent bone loss. Watch the video to learn more.
It is essential that bone loss be avoided because it can lead to a weaker and malformed jawbone, which may soon affect a patient’s appearance. Dental implants are made of titanium, which is a metal that can fuse with the bone to become part of its structure. As the titanium dental implants fuse with the jawbone, the gums and structure of the mouth and jaw are likelier to remain the same. Dental implants can effectively prevent bone loss and protect patient’s dental health and overall appearance.
