Avoid Bone Deterioration Following Extraction

White Plains Jaw Bone Deterioration Hello friends of The Dental Design Center – Ira J. Handschuh, D.D.S.! In today’s post, we will address jaw bone health.

Those tooth roots are important!

To remain strong and vital, your jawbone needs to be continuously stimulated by the pressure of chewing, biting, and talking. Each tooth has a root structure that 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 procedure for individuals with tooth damage beyond repair. However, we make every effort to preserve the root structure. When a tooth is extracted, the jaw bone that surrounds the previous 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 is composed of a tough 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.
