Restoring the Jawbone and Gum Tissue
Healthy jaw and gums are vital to optimal oral health, and they also help to ensure that you have a great smile.

What Are the Causes of Jaw and Gum Deterioration?
There are several reasons that can cause the deterioration of the jaw and gums. For the jaw, the main cause of deterioration is resorption due to tooth loss. After losing a tooth, the stimulation of that tooth to the jawbone is lost, which reduces the tissue regeneration rate of the jawbone. As a result, the jawbone starts shrinking away over time.
Other causes of jawbone loss include an infection that has spread to the bone tissue (gum disease, tooth infection, or another oral infection, for example, one from cysts or lesions). Damage of the jawbone tissue following a dental injury or during tooth extraction can also lead to bone loss.
Gum deterioration, on the other hand, is usually caused by gum disease, or a bacterial infection (from the teeth) that has spread to the gum tissue. It's also possible to experience gum damage following a traumatic dental injury.
