Can dental implants stop bone loss?

Bone loss can occur for several reasons. It can often occur during a natural process called resorption, where bone is depleted due to one or more missing teeth. This is because your tooth creates pressure every time you bite down through the tooth root, which stimulates bone health. 

Other common reasons bone loss occurs include:

  • Periodontal disease
  • Dentures and dental bridges that sit above the gumline
  • Injury or knocked-out tooth

Can Dental Implants Stop Bone Loss?

Dental implants are biocompatible titanium screws that we surgically placed in the jaw bone. 

After the dental implant has healed and a dental crown has been placed over it, it will look, feel, and function as an existing tooth. It replaces your missing tooth, down to the root.

As with a natural tooth, the implant creates pressure on the jaw bone and stimulates it to grow.

In this way, dental implants stop bone loss and help keep your smile strong and healthy.
