Jaw and Gum Resorption
Annapolis, MD

Diagram of jaw resorption examples at Djawdan Center for Implant and Restorative Dentistry.When a person has a single tooth or multiple missing teeth, it causes a decrease in stimulation to the jaw bone. No stimulation and no blood flow result in a type of bone loss called resorption.

What is Jaw and Gum Resorption?

Resorption is what happens when bone in the jaw is no longer alive and healthy. The body essentially thinks there is no need for this material because there are no teeth present in that area that need a blood supply. Over time, the bone will shrink and reabsorb back into the body. When this occurs, your facial structure is impacted significantly because there is not enough supporting bone. Your face will collapse inward and cause you to look prematurely aged.

How We Stop Jaw and Gum Resorption

Even if you have previously been told that you are not a candidate for dental implants because of bone loss or resorption, that might not be true. We can build up supporting bone structure with bone grafting and stop the resorption process altogether. We can help you achieve the smile of your dreams!
