Avoid Bone Deterioration Following Extraction

Salt Lake City Jaw Bone DeteriorationTo be healthy and strong, your jaw bone needs to be continuously stimulated by the pressure of chewing, biting, and talking. When a tooth and its root are lost, for whatever reason, then the health of the bone is at risk. But a dental implant from The Sugar House Dentist in Salt Lake City can preserve its integrity.

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.

For some people with extreme tooth damage, extraction is the only option. However, we make every effort to preserve the root structure. When a tooth is extracted, the jaw bone that surrounded the previous 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  a substantial 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 integrated with the implant, a post is inserted 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.
