For many people with periodontal disease, tooth loss is a serious concern. Unfortunately, both the infection and the gradual loss of bone density after teeth are lost can interfere with your ability to undergo prosthetic treatment and regain your full smile. Treating gum disease will help, but you can also require additional support if your jaw health is a concern. Through a procedure to restore the health and density of the bone, your Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontist can help you begin the process of fully restoring your incomplete smile. This treatment can improve your candidacy for implant placement, which means that you can move forward with larger plans to address the impact of periodontal disease and tooth loss on your life.
Jawbone Deterioration Can Hurt Your Candidacy For Implant Placement
When you delay treatment for tooth loss, you can encounter some unexpected difficulties. A single gap in your smile is enough to change your risk for new oral health issues, including further tooth losses and the deterioration of your jawbone. Poor health and density can complicate plans to place a dental implant, as you may not be able to receive it and support it. This does not mean that you have no way of addressing tooth loss—through a contouring treatment using laser technology, we can help you by improving the health and density of the bone where your implant should be placed.
