Tooth loss is not the only tooth lost.
It is known that the physical forces transmitted to the teeth by chewing have the effect of stimulating the presence of the jawbone and creating cell regeneration. The jawbones that support the teeth can be adversely affected if the teeth are pulled out, and since the physical forces directly transmitted to the bone are eliminated, melting can be seen in the jawbones.
In natural bone formation and destruction physiology, the upper jaw bones melt from front to back and the lower jaw melts from back to front. This situation, in which people’s lower jaw moves forward due to aging, is observed much more clearly especially in people with tooth deficiency.
Thanks to the migration of the healing cells to the area with the blood flow, a healing mechanism begins in the area of the tooth extraction, so that new bone tissue is formed, and a new solid bone tissue is encountered in the extraction socket within an average of 3 months. Dental implant application for this formed bone tissue is of great importance in preventing the melting of the formed bone and preserving its existence in the long term. In the absence of teeth, physical load transmission to the bone can continue directly thanks to the implants. Scientific studies show that more than 50% of the bone is lost in the areas that remain empty for 1 year after tooth extraction. Especially in women, osteoporosis in advanced ages constitutes a suitable basis for the existing bone destruction to progress more severely. Preventing the melting of the jawbones due to dysfunction with a timely and correct implant treatment eliminates the need for advanced surgical operations due to severe jawbone deficiency in the long term and prevents them from getting tired in many ways.
