Avoid Bone Deterioration Following Extraction

Elgin Jaw Bone Deterioration Hello friends of David A. Rice, DDS! In today’s post, we will discuss jaw bone health.

Those tooth roots are important!

To remain healthy and strong, your jawbone needs to be constantly stimulated by the pressure of chewing, biting, and talking. Each tooth has a root structure the extends into the surrounding bone material. As each tooth absorbs the forces of everyday mouth function, it stimulates blood flow in the bone surrounding the root.

Have you had a tooth extracted?

In some cases, tooth extraction is the only possible dental service for people with tooth damage beyond repair. However, we make every effort to preserve the root structure. When a tooth is extracted, the jaw bone that surrounded the initial root structure begins to recede.

A dental implant replaces both the root and the crown of an extracted tooth

Fortunately, tooth implants provide a new, artificial root that helps to keep the surrounding bone healthy and strong. A dental implant consists of a durable titanium post which replaces the natural root and eventually integrates into the surrounding bone.

After the implant has been placed and the surrounding bone has healed and meshed with the implant, a post is placed into the implant. The new artificial tooth, or crown, is then attached to the post. Implant restoration is a safe and effective treatment for tooth loss.

Are dental implants a good option for you?

For more specifics about dental implants, call Dr. David Rice at 847-741-2353. The comfortable team at David A. Rice, DDS provide world-class dental treatment for patients in Elgin and the surrounding areas.
