Not replacing a missing tooth can result in bone lossIt is imperative that you replace any missing teeth as having a gap in your mouth can cause your jaw bone to recede. Bone loss is an inconvenient and extremely damaging ailment which can be tricky and grueling to amend as most often patients will have to have bone grafts to restore the strength of the bone. Bone loss can also be caused by periodontitis (gum disease). In order to avoid bone loss and other health concerns it is recommended that you visit Curtis Couch at least twice a year, or more often if you have a history of periodontitis or a weak jaw.
Avoid bone loss by installing dental implantsDental implants are an everyday procedure here at Curtis Couch in Thousand Oaks. Our primary dentist and secondary dentists are dedicated to reinvigorating your smile by replacing any gaps with new, synthetic but completely natural looking teeth. Dental implants decrease your risk of bone loss as they are secured utilizing a titanium post which is biocompatible and thus will meld with your jawbone to retain and improve bone strength and density. Bone needs to be stimulated in order to maintain its strength and that’s why it is so imperative that you always fill in a gap if you have a missing tooth. Dental Implants can help reinvigorate your life and your smile as well as fight bone loss The dental implant procedure can restore your smile confidence as well as:
- Restore structure to your mouth/jaw
