When one or more teeth are missing, it can lead to jawbone loss at the site of the gap. This loss of jawbone can develop into additional problems, tanto con su apariencia como con su salud en general. Puede experimentar dolor, problemas con los dientes restantes, and altered facial appearance, and eventually even the inability to speak and eat normally.
In that same way that muscles are maintained through exercise, el tejido óseo se mantiene con el uso. Natural teeth are embedded in the jawbone, and stimulate the jawbone through activities such as chewing and biting. Cuando faltan dientes, el hueso alveolar, or the portion of the jawbone that anchors the teeth in the mouth, no longer receives the necessary stimulation, and begins to break down, o reabsorber. The body no longer uses or “needs” the jawbone, por lo que se deteriora y desaparece.
