A lost tooth also means a lost tooth root. Without that root and the pressure exerted by it from biting and chewing, you can begin to lose mass in your jawbone, a process called resorption. Severe gum disease can also create this problem. Our periodontist and the team at Redrock Dental & Wellness offer bone grafting in Swampscott and Boston, Massachusetts.
