Will dentures prevent bone loss?

When a person loses teeth, it's not just the teeth that are affected. The bone that supported the teeth is also lost. This happens because the roots of the teeth stimulate the bones while chewing. When the roots are gone, the bones no longer receive this stimulation and begin to shrink. Because of this, it is essential to take steps to prevent bone loss after tooth loss. And one way to do that is by wearing dentures. 

Dentures can help prevent bone loss by providing artificial bone stimulation. Dentures can also help to keep the natural shape of the mouth and jawbone. By filling in the spaces left by missing teeth, dentures help to support the remaining teeth and prevent them from shifting out of position. As a result, dentures play an important role in maintaining oral health.

While dentures are not a perfect solution, they are an effective way to prevent bone loss in people with missing teeth. Importantly, as you lose teeth, you lose bone, and the ridge that holds your dentures in place may get smaller over time. Because of these changes to your bone structure, you may need to get replacement dentures every so often to make sure they fit well. Our dentists can share what options are available to you so that you can make the best choice for your dental health.
