When one or more teeth are missing it can lead to bone loss at the site of the gap. This loss of jaw bone can develop into additional problems, both with your appearance and your overall health. You may experience pain, problems with your remaining teeth, altered facial appearance, and eventually even the inability to speak and/or eat normally.
In the same way that muscles are maintained through exercise, bone tissue is maintained by use. Los dientes naturales están incrustados en el hueso de la mandíbula y estimulan el hueso de la mandíbula a través de actividades como masticar y morder.. Cuando faltan dientes, el hueso alveolar, or the portion of the jaw bone that anchors the teeth into the mouth, no longer receives the necessary stimulation it needs and begins to break down, o reabsorber. The body no longer uses or “needs” el hueso de la mandíbula, so it deteriorates.
