Avoid Bone Deterioration Following an Extraction in Seattle

Seattle Jaw Bone Deterioration Extraction in Seattle Hello, friends of Advanced Cosmetic & Laser Dentistry! In today’s post, we will review jaw bone health. To remain healthy and dense, your jaw bone needs to be continuously stimulated by the pressure of chewing, biting, and talking. 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.

How an Extraction Affects Your Bone Health

In some cases, tooth extraction in Seattle is the only possible dental procedure for individuals with tooth damage beyond repair. 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 after an extraction in Seattle.

What is Implant Dentistry?

A dental implant is a strong 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.
