Optimal oral health entails far more than merely maintaining an aesthetically pleasing smile. It encompasses the intricate interplay between oral health and overall well-being, with the condition of your jawbone being a crucial focus.
At the Sacramento, CA office of Clifton E. Nakatani, DDS, MSD, we prioritize your comprehensive oral care. This extends to our advanced services in bone regeneration and bone preservation, both integral parts of periodontal care. To learn more about these procedures and how they impact your oral health, read below!
What Is Bone Regeneration?
Bone regeneration is a specialized periodontal procedure aimed at reversing the damage caused by periodontal disease, injury, or atrophy due to tooth loss. This process encourages the body’s natural ability to grow new bone and soft tissue, thereby creating a solid foundation for dental implants or other oral prosthetics.
Just as a building requires a robust foundation, your teeth need a healthy and substantial jawbone structure for optimal function and aesthetics. The remarkable science behind bone regeneration mimics the body’s natural process of bone production, fostering healing and promoting healthy oral structures.
What Is Bone Preservation?
Bone preservation, also known as socket preservation, is a preventative procedure performed immediately after tooth extraction. It’s designed to minimize bone loss that often occurs after an extraction and maintain the structural integrity of the jawbone. This procedure involves filling the socket with bone graft material after tooth removal, helping to preserve the bone and create a conducive environment for a future implant or prosthetic.
Preventing bone loss not only helps maintain your oral health but also enhances facial aesthetics. When bone loss occurs, it can lead to a sunken appearance, altering your facial structure. Through bone preservation, Dr. Nakatani can help maintain your natural jawline and facial contours.
Why You Should Consider Bone Regeneration & Bone Preservation
The key reason for considering bone regeneration or bone preservation is to maintain or restore the health and structure of your jawbone. Both procedures are significant if you’re considering dental implants or other oral prosthetics, as they require a solid bone foundation.
Additionally, these procedures can help prevent further oral health complications. For instance, untreated periodontal disease can lead to severe bone loss, possibly jeopardizing your overall oral health. Likewise, not addressing bone loss after tooth extraction can make future restorative work more complicated.
