Compromised Mouths

There are some situations where almost the entire jaw bone has disappeared and the gum that used to cover the bone has also shrunk.

This gives the appearance that the entire face has fallen in. In such cases patients can run the risk of breaking the jaw which is very thin and fragile.

The treatment therefore requires the jaws to be built up with bone grafts before implants are placed. The treatment becomes essential to allow the patient to continue to function.
