The jawbone provides the foundation that secures the roots of the teeth. if a tooth is removed, the surrounding bone mass, since no longer needed, will start to break down. This is known as “bone resorption.”

When an implant dentist Centennial replaces a natural tooth with a dental implant, the bone reacts, and starts to support the implant as it would the original tooth. The bone bonds with the implant when its’ function is restored. Consequently, an implant dentist Centennial can actually promote bone preservation by installing animplant.
