In this post from Mirelez Wellness Dental in Fresno, we will review jaw bone health, and how dental implants can help them stay strong.
To remain strong and vital, your jaw bone 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.
In some cases, tooth extraction is the only possible procedure on teeth damaged beyond repair. However, we make every effort to retain the root structure. When a tooth is extracted, the jaw bone that surrounded the former root structure begins to recede.
Fortunately, dental implants provide a new, artificial root which helps to keep the surrounding bone healthy and strong. A dental implant is a titanium post that replaces the natural root and eventually fuses with the surrounding bone.
After the implant has been placed and the surrounding bone has healed and fused with it, a post is placed into the implant. The new artificial tooth is then attached to the post. Implant restoration is a safe and effective treatment for tooth loss.
