Dentist in Reno, NV - Rebuilding Bone - Atencio Dentistry

If you currently have missing teeth, broken teeth, dentures or a bridge that you would like to replace with a more permanent option, our dentist in Reno, NV, may have the perfect solution: dental implants. A dental implant looks just like a regular tooth and blends seamlessly with your smile. However, if you’ve been missing teeth or have had dentures for a long time, there may be a loss of bone necessary to support dental implants. Our dentist can help overcome this obstacle and get you your ideal smile.

What Is Bone Loss?

Bone loss in the jaw and supporting structures of the mouth happens over time. If you are missing teeth, or have been using dentures for a while, there are no teeth present to exert pressure on the jawbone. This is a problem because this stimulus is what encourages bone cell regeneration. The longer this goes on, the more volume is lost from the bone, leaving it unable to support the dental implants you want to have placed. 

How Do You Fix Bone Loss?

Thankfully, there is a procedure called bone grafting that helps rebuild the bone and strengthen it to the point that we can insert dental implants successfully. A bone graft is placed in the area where the bone is thin or has low volume. This encourages cell turnover and strengthens the bone prior to the procedure. 

What Are The Benefits?

Fixing issues with loss of bone volume allows dental implants to be placed. The most beneficial part of dental implants, aside from a beautiful smile, is that the titanium root continues to exert pressure on the jawbone, encouraging the bone to regrow further, just like a regular tooth would! This can help improve chewing and speaking that may have been impeded due to missing teeth.

I was nervous to see a new doctor especially since I didn’t have the best experience at my last place but was surprised Everyone was very friendly and efficient. I felt comfortable and well taken care of. They took the time to explain what they were going to do and not get you in and rush you out. Very nice.
