Why would I need a bone graft?

Your comment has been received. Thank you.

When a tooth is lost, the lack of stimulation causes loss of the bone. After the first year of losing a tooth there is a 25% decrease in width of bone as well as an overall decrease in height over the next few years. The more teeth lost, the more bone function lost. This often leads to some serious aesthetic and functional problems for some people, particularly in those who have lost all of their teeth. After alveolar bone is lost, the bone beneath it, basal bone also begins to resorb (melt away).
Judith Thanks for sttaring the ball rolling with this insight.
