Bone grafting is closely associated with dental restorations such as bridge work and dental implants.
The success of a restoration procedure hinges on the height, depth, and width of the jawbone at the implant site.
When the jawbone has receded or sustained significant damage, the implant(s) cannot be supported and bone grafting is recommended.
Bone grafting can increase the height or width of the jawbone and fill in voids and defects in the bone. It stabilizes and helps restore the jaw foundation for restorative or implant surgery.
Deformities can be corrected and the restructuring of the bone can provide added support.
Bone grafting can also be used to limit or prevent bone recession following a tooth extraction, periodontal disease, or other invasive process.
Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction Syndrome (TMJ) is a common condition characterized by severe headaches, jaw pain, grinding teeth, and intermittent ringing in the ears. The majority of TMJ sufferers are unaware that the root cause of these problems can be effectively treated by the dentist.
TMJ symptoms can be debilitating. The dentist is able to test, diagnose, and devise an immediate plan to treat the underlying causes of the TMJ disorder.
The most common cause of TMJ is the misalignment of the teeth, often called “bad bite.” The dentist can realign or adjust the teeth without the need for painful or expensive surgeries. Realignment/adjustment will help stop the pounding headaches, the jaw pain, and dizziness.
Teeth grinding is particularly common and usually occurs at night. Grinding erodes the structure of the teeth and can lead to much more severe dental problems. Untreated TMJ is one of the prime underlying factors in eroded jawbones and loose teeth.
It is important for anyone experiencing the symptoms of TMJ to visit the dentist for an exact diagnosis.
