Gingivitis can dissolve jaw bones.
If gingivitis is not treated, it can adversely affect the jaw bones and lead to bone resorption and tooth loss.
It is possible to prevent gum diseases with good oral care and regular tooth brushing habits. Bacterial plaque that accumulates on our teeth after meals, when not removed with a toothbrush, can turn into dental calculus along with the minerals in the saliva.
This situation; It can lead to gingivitis, bad breath, bleeding gums, and loss of teeth and jawbones in the future.
In the treatment of jaw bone resorption
It is possible to correct the deficiencies with bone grafts, also known as bone powder, which are bone-forming artificial materials.
However, the healing capacity of this artificial material is limited and may be insufficient to correct large bone deficiencies. In the treatment of such conditions, the correction of the deficiency with the patient’s own jawbone tissue is considered the gold standard in bone formation operations, as it offers a very high healing potential.
In order to repair the jawbone, a high-quality bone called the ramus is used in the lower jaw, behind the 20-year-old tooth. Removing the bone from this region does not cause any weakness in the relevant region. The autogenous bone taken from the bone donor area, that is, the bone belonging to the person, is fixed to the area where bone is desired to be created with special titanium mini screws, and it is possible to apply dental implants in ideal sizes after expanding even the thin jaw bones that cannot be implanted with this method.
