The truth about jaw bone loss? What is the solution?

Did you know, jawbone loss is a complication of tooth loss, posing serious challenges to oral health. If not treated promptly, complications not only affect appearance but also affect overall health. To better understand this complication and effective solutions, please follow below.

What is jaw bone loss?

Jaw bone loss, also known as tooth root loss, is a condition in which the tooth socket and bone surrounding the teeth deteriorate, creating a major impact on the bite and facial structure. This phenomenon is often recognized by the decrease in height, quantity, density and volume of dental bones. Starting from a specific location on the jaw, bone loss, if not detected and treated promptly, can progress and spread to the surrounding bone.

Causes of jaw bone loss

Causes of jaw bone loss may include:

Tooth loss: When teeth are lost due to causes such as tooth decay, trauma or tooth extraction, the empty area left in the bone can lead to bone density loss and jaw bone loss.

Gingivitis: If not treated promptly, gingivitis can spread and cause damage to the bone around the teeth, leading to jaw bone loss.

Aging: The natural aging process can also contribute to jaw bone loss due to decreased bone density and loss of bone minerals.
Trauma: Trauma to teeth or jaw structures can also reduce bone density and cause bone loss.

How to fix jaw bone loss

When faced with tooth bone loss, there are a number of effective remedies that patients can apply:

Dental implants: Dental implants are a modern solution to restore lost teeth. Implants not only restore teeth but also attract bone cells, helping to prevent the risk of bone loss in the future.

Artificial bone graft: In cases where there is not enough jaw bone for an implant, an artificial bone grafting procedure is performed to create enough space for the implant.

Bone grafting: Using autologous bone from areas such as the patient's jaw, chin, or hip to implant, compensate for the lack of bone and overcome bone loss.
