Like the rest of the human body, the jawbone relies on a healthy blood flow to deliver essential minerals and nutrients. In the jaw, this flow is stimulated during biting and chewing as the tooth's roots absorb pressure. After a tooth is lost or extracted, the bone within the empty socket is resorbed so that the nutrients can be dispersed elsewhere throughout the body. Left untreated, jawbone deterioration can lead to further tooth loss and other complications. Dr. Andrew R. Glenn, an experienced and highly trained oral surgeon, offers bone grafting at our Lincoln office. Bone grafting can provide a stronger foundation for dental implants to replace lost teeth and improve oral health. To learn more about whether a bone graft is right for you, schedule a consultation at our office today.
