Do I Need Bone Grafting In My Jaw?
Bone loss of the jaws is common in areas where teeth have been missing or from gum disease. When the bone is no longer properly stimulated by the teeth, it deteriorates and the following can happen:
- “Sunken” facial appearance on one or both sides
- Loose dentures that won’t stay in
- Tipping or crooked teeth
- Inability to chew or speak properly
- Unable to be a candidate for dental implants
Dr. Eric Choudhury performs bone grafting in Houston using the latest techniques with the safest materials. Bone grafting is a routine periodontal procedure that can allow you to keep teeth longer and be a good candidate for dental implants.
