Implants Are Capable of Halting Bone Loss

Dental implants are preferred for tooth replacement thanks to a number of factors, and are the only option capable of preserving bone health and arresting deterioration. Bone loss in the jaw is caused by conditions like:

  • Periodontal Disease
  • Tooth Loss
  • Misaligned Teeth
  • Ill-Fitting Appliances
  • Injury or Trauma
  • Cysts or Tumors

Implants rely on sufficient bone volume for support, and stimulate surrounding bone tissue each time the teeth bite or chew – an important component of maintaining bone health. Seattle patients with bone loss often are not candidates for implants right away at Pacific Northwest Periodontics, yet may still enjoy the benefits of this tooth replacement method following bone stabilization dental services. Total implant cost may take into account any preparatory procedures needed to restore bone health.

Treatments for Bone Loss in Teeth

As with any dental procedure, there is a possibility of unintended collateral damage while placing your dental implants. However, due to our experience and knowledge, we are able to prevent issues like periodontal disease, tooth loss, or misaligned teeth by implementing advanced procedures like bone grafting and ridge augmentation. Contact us for a consultation so we can determine exactly what procedures you need.
