Methods To Rebuild Jaw Structure

Whether you are aware of it or not, your teeth play a major role in your overall oral function. For instance, your crowns help you bite, chew, and eat, while your roots act as an anchor to your jaw so that the pressure of your bite can be supported. That being said, your jaw, gums, tongue, and more all have a role to fulfill when performing tasks such as eating or speaking, and if any one of these factors were compromised, the entire system would be in danger. In today’s blog, your Fort Worth, TX oral surgeon will discuss the way that these roles aid in successful implant placement, as well as what we can do to assist.

The Necessity of Structural Support

As we mentioned earlier, all aspects that contribute to your oral health work together to accomplish your routine actions, including eating and speaking. When one portion of the system falls flat, the entire system takes a hit. An example of this includes the structural support and integrity of your jaw.

You see, your jaw is necessary for helping you perform daily tasks. It houses your teeth roots and creates a secure connection with them that allows your crowns to properly absorb the pressure of your bite. Without the roots or the jaw bone, this task simply could not be done. The same can be said for dental implants as well, as they need enough healthy structure to mimic this relationship, otherwise, they will fail.

Understanding Your Treatment

One of the solutions our team can offer to help support your implant procedure is to rebuild your natural structure with the help of a biocompatible material. This process, known as bone grafting, can help strengthen your lower mandible and rebuild your healthy structure so that the biocompatible titanium post can create a secure enough bond. We can do the same for your upper jaw with the help of a sinus lift. For more information about this process and how we can prep you for your minimally invasive treatment, reach out to our team today.
