An important consideration in implant therapy is how much bone remains in the jaw bone after a tooth is lost. Implants require good bone all the way around in order to be healthy for a long time and provide adequate function and esthetics.
Sometimes, patients may present with situations where there is insufficient bone for a dental implant to be completely surrounded by bone when it is placed. Common causes of bone loss may include long-term tooth loss (the jaw bone naturally shrinks if there is no tooth), the presence of a large infection, severe gum disease, or trauma.
