The Importance of Bone Quality – Southlake, TX
Why Your Jawbone Matters
for Your New Teeth
The Smile Rehab Centers process is able to help patients in a variety of situations, whether they are missing all of their teeth, some of their teeth, or already using a denture. Because Smile Rehab Centers teeth are held in place using dental implants, however, one factor that is extremely important for every patient is the strength and density of their jawbone.
A Stable Foundation
A dental implant is essentially a prosthetic tooth root that provides support for the teeth. In order for the implants to keep the teeth stable during chewing and speaking, it needs to be positioned within an adequate amount of jawbone. Without it, the teeth would ultimately be unstable and inevitably fail.
When you come in for your initial consultation, we will take a CBCT scan of your mouth to evaluate the quality of your jawbone, and this will largely determine how your treatment will proceed. This will help us find the perfect places to locate your implants so that your new teeth function perfectly in the years to come.
