Consequences of Bone Loss

Consequences of bone loss vary, depending upon where the bone loss occurs. Bone loss in the upper back arch, for example, will cause the sinus cavity to sag, whereas bone loss in the lower arch can cause your chin and mouth to collapse inward. It can significantly alter your facial structure, leading to changed appearance and loss of self-esteem.

When you have suffered bone loss, Dr. Nargiz Schmidt can perform bone grafts to increase bone volume. While grafts are a solution for bone loss, only one treatment can prevent bone loss and that is tooth restoration with dental implants.
