Bone loss is the result of gum disease. The problem? Severe bone loss can cause people to lose teeth.
And when you lose teeth or the bone around your teeth, you lose part of the structure of your face, which can give you a prematurely aged appearance or be otherwise aesthetically displeasing.
A bone regeneration procedure rebuilds bone tissue within your jaws to create a stronger anchor for your teeth. If you have already lost one or more teeth, bone grafting will give you a better foundation for dental implants, allow you to chew better, and give you a more youthful smile.
