Maintaining a Healthy Jaw
Your jaw bone provides a support for teeth and structure for your face, helping create your natural appearance. Much like a muscle, the jaw bone relies on regular “exercise” to remain healthy and strong through the stimulation from tooth roots from activities like chewing and eating. When teeth are lost and not replaced, this has a direct effect on the health of the bone and can often cause resorption of bone volume. When you lack proper bone volume, teeth can begin to shift, fall out and alter your facial appearance.
