Gingivitis can dissolve jaw bones.
If gingivitis is not treated, it can negatively affect the jawbones and lead to bone resorption and tooth loss.
It is possible to prevent gum diseases with an adequate oral care and regular tooth brushing habit. When the bacterial plaque that accumulates on our teeth after meals is not removed with a toothbrush, it can turn into tartar 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 beautification capacity of this artificial material is finite and may be insufficient for the elimination of 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 smoothing potential.
With the aim of repairing the jawbone, the area of high quality of the bone called the ramus, behind the 20-year-old tooth, is generally used in the lower jaw. Removal of 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 that belongs to the person, is fixed to the area where bone is desired to be formed with special titanium small 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 procedure.
