RANDOLPH, N.J., Oct. 31, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Drs. Hal and Adam Kimowitz, dentists
A common cause of jawbone loss is tooth loss. As soon as a tooth is lost or removed from the mouth, the surrounding bone begins to be reabsorbed. In time, this leads to a "sunken in" look in the face as more bone is lost and the foundation of the smile is weakened. Beyond aesthetics, this area is at a heightened risk for other issues including shifting teeth and additional tooth loss.
Dental implants offer a permanent solution for missing teeth. Not only do they stimulate bone growth and prevent reabsorption, they also preserve the smile by preventing surrounding teeth from shifting. Restoring a complete smile aesthetically, dental implants also renew oral function allowing patients to eat and speak comfortably again.
In some cases, dental implants should not be placed until a bone graft has been performed to boost bone density and stability. A bone graft can be performed using a number of different techniques depending on the location of the bone loss and the patient's unique situation. Regardless, a bone graft fortifies an area of bone loss by adding new bone to the site. After it has been allowed time to heal, the jawbone accepts this new tissue and restores facial structure and oral function. However, replacing the tooth with dental implants will help ensure the process will not continue.
Drs. Kimowitz perform bone grafting procedures in-house thanks to their long-term training and commitment to offering modern dental techniques. As active members of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry and Fellows of the International Congress of Oral Implantology, among other organizations, Drs. Kimowitz are passionate about educating their patients on the risks of leaving tooth loss and bone loss untreated.
