Tooth Loss Doesn’t Have to Mean Bone Loss

Tooth loss can happen for any number of reasons for my Cherry Creek and Denver patients; trauma or injury, periodontal disease, and decay are some of the most common reasons. Sometimes the permanent teeth never even develop; this condition is called congenital absence.

Sometimes a missing tooth calls for immediate action. For instance, if you’ve had a front tooth knocked out playing soccer, you won’t be able to avoid seeing the gap in the mirror and feeling self-conscious. But what if the tooth is in the back of your mouth and not easy to see? Is there still a need to replace the tooth?

Well, let’s talk about what happens when a tooth is lost. Under the surface of your gums, each tooth is surrounded by an alveolar bone, which helps support the tooth and keep it strong and in place. When the tooth is lost, this bone atrophies, and bone loss occurs. This is why people who have been longtime denture wearers can have a sunken in appearance to their mouths. Not only can you lose bone, but your teeth can also shift around in your mouth and you can experience bite problems and jaw pain.

The good news is that just because you have tooth loss it doesn’t mean you have to have bone loss. Modern Cherry Creek dental implant technology can restore your smile—whether you are missing a single tooth or many.

Dental implants in Denver have a more than 95% success rate, are as strong as natural teeth, are easy to brush and floss, and can last for the rest of your life. They can also be used to stabilize a denture or a bridge, increasing both utility and comfort.

It’s easy to set up a consultation to discuss the pros and cons of getting dental implants. Just call New Image Dental Implant Center in Cherry Creek at 720-398-0933 and a member of my knowledgeable and helpful staff will schedule an appointment.
