The three primary components of a strong and healthy smile are the teeth, gum tissue, and jawbone. If any one of these components becomes compromised, the others are likely to follow. In these cases, overall oral health may suffer and, without treatment, more complications are likely to arise. Dr. Joseph Perry helps patients maintain the strength and structure of the smile by treating conditions that may lead to jawbone degradation. Dr. Perry discusses the common causes of jawbone degradation with his San Antonio, TX patients, as he offers dental solutions, such as custom dentures to address tooth loss, which may help to prevent the loss or weakening of healthy jawbone tissue.
The health of the teeth, gums, and jawbone are all linked, so the conditions that negatively affect the health of the teeth and gums will also impact the health, or strength, of the jawbone. Below are some of the oral health problems that are likely to lead to the degradation of jawbone tissue:
To maintain the strength of the jawbone and the structure of the mouth, it is important to treat the dental conditions that are the primary causes of jawbone degradation. In the case of tooth loss, it is important to restore the teeth with a dental restoration that will continue to promote the growth of healthy jawbone tissue. Dr. Perry offers implant-supported dental implants and Fountain of Youth Dentures. Both of these treatments provide patients with strong and natural-looking restorations that also address and prevent jawbone degradation.
Dr. Joseph Perry offers several restorative treatments that address tooth loss in order to preserve a strong and healthy smile.
