Tooth loss bone

Common Questions and Answers about Tooth loss bone


Avatar f tn The surgery worked best on my lower teeth, slowing down the bone loss significantly and rebuilding bone/tooth connection (that's what the gortex is for. That type of surgery is even more advanced now, I think). It didn't have as much success with my more advanced upper teeth. You have to identify all compromised teeth and undergo aggressive treatment (surgery, root planing..), and then take very good care of your teeth and gums for the rest of your life.
541456 tn?1394494222 Over twenty years ago a dentist told me I had bone loss on one tooth. Never affected me until three years ago I got a stabbing pain in it and a root canal. It was fine until three months ago. Now if I floss around it too aggressively it can hurt all night long . It also snags the floss. This is something new. Two months ago it became "rough" on the inside and snags floss. There is no bump or absess and it feels fine today.
Avatar n tn when he examined me he did xrays which showed bone loss around 1 1/2 of the teeth and also that the nerve to 1 tooth had died. my question is, could the bone loss be due to a nasty sinus infection or chronic sinusitis, or to a small cavity which was filled 35 years ago with a gold filling which was replaced with a normal filling 8 years ago. also, if the nerve is dead, even though the infection seems to have cleared up, why is the tooth still aching a little?
Avatar f tn I have periodontitis and consequently have bone loss throughout my mouth. I recently had #15 extracted. Today I went for my one week postoperative checkup. The site had not healed; I am to return in one week. My concern: I don't understand why my dentist didn't do any restorative procedures when he extracted the tooth. He gave me an explaination, but I didn't understand. I stopped taking Fosamax before the extraction (I had taken it for less than 4 years) and am not going to take the drug again.
Avatar n tn I'm sorry to hear about your bone loss. Did the dentist say how long it takes to get to that stage? I've been diagnosed with periodontal disease. I've done the first part of a full-mouth debridement. I'm doing the second part soon. I've been told this will stop the disease.
Avatar n tn I know that bone loss can occur when a tooth is extracted, and the implant is supposed to prevent such bone loss from occurring, but will there be any bone loss at all? I am really concerned because I am so young and don't want my facial appearance to change. Thank you so much.
Avatar n tn that can be used with single implants. 70% bone loss is quite a bit. It's my understanding that if the tooth can wiggle from side to side (they all can move slightly front to back) it's pretty much a gonner. Maybe you should ask your dentist what the chances are of saving a tooth that can already wiggle that much and has that much bone loss.
Avatar m tn the tooth is loose because of bone loss. activity has nothing to do with your symptoms. sinus issues can be related to dental problems but if its your lungs it probably isnt.
Avatar n tn If a bridge is the option you select for replacement of tooth#19, a bone graft would be indicated in some cases where there is a severe amount of bone destruction around that tooth, such that the healed area would leave a large open space. This makes the placement of the bridge and subsequent cleaning in and around the bridge more difficult. If the tooth has relatively healthy bone around it, a bone graft may not be necessary.
Avatar m tn Why can't you pull a tooth, use a CNC Milling machine to duplicate the pulled tooth's roots out of titanium and insert it for immediate use. No bone loss or waiting to put in a post and let bone grow around it. Just put in an exact replica of the old tooth?
Avatar n tn I'm not sure I follow your question, but bone loss at roots can be serious depending on how much bone loss there is. you may not feel any pain with bone loss until there is a problem.
Avatar n tn Chewing gum seems to press #31 down into the socket. I've been taking calcium and magnesium supplements hoping to help the bone to fill in around the tooth - which seems otherwise healthy. I use waterpik, mouthwash, brush and floss regularly. So long as I do not chew harder foods on that tooth it feels good except for being loose. Am I likely to be able to get the tooth to reset (tighten) in the bone - and would you suggest any other supportive measures to strengthen the tooth/socket?
Avatar f tn Once that happens, infection moves along the periodontal ligament to the next tooth, and on and on. Tooth loss can follow and follow quickly. I urge you to get to your dentist for an evaluation of the painful tooth. You can avoid many future problems that way. GOOD LUCK and make that appt.
Avatar f tn Bone grafting is usually indicated to replace or augment bone in areas of tooth loss which may occur due to trauma, severe caries, or periodontal disease. The most effective graft material is your own natural bone followed by freeze dried human bone and then processed animal bone, and lastly, mineral bone substitute .It is important to discuss the details of this procedure with your dentist and get a firm understanding before the surgical procedure starts. I sincerely hope it helps.
Avatar n tn You don't want an infection in your front tooth. Been there,...did that, and lost my four front teeth to bone loss from an infection I didn't even know I had. Do have it checked out and get some of the toothpaste. It takes a couple of weeks, but it can do wonders. GOOD LUCK and let us know how you do.
Avatar f tn I took good care of them on and off and noticed on another xray the there is less bone. I think there is 60% bone loss on the canine and lateral incisor and 80% bone loss on the central insicor - this is my guess. When I went to the periodontist, he looked at my xray and said there was no bone loss, but I think this was the wrong xray because you couldn't see my bar on it. I didn't say anything since he checked for pockets and didn't find any.
Avatar n tn If you allow that tartar to remain below the gum, it will cause bone loss of the jaw and eventually your teeth will loosen, not to mention it may get infected and cause an abscess. Best to get it checked out and taken care of.
Avatar m tn My dentist suggested that I should have this tooth removed. I just lost the lower tooth a month ago due to shaky and bone loss in this area. Both teeth have a build up layer around the roots and I really don't want to loose any more teeth. Is there any way I can save this tooth? My gum bleed when I poke into the gum for this tooth. I have tried various treatments like rinse my mouth with salt and water,rinse with Listorine . That seems to help for a short term.
Avatar f tn Had Ortho pan tomography which showed BONE LOSS of upper jaw around three front teeth. Been seeing Dentist monthly for drilling draining and changing of dressings. Seeing Dentist 21st july for more of the same. Not pretty. ( plus well into 4 figures of $s). and not finished..........GO TO DENTIST NOW OK......
Avatar m tn My daughter has just had that canine tooth removed and her 1st of a few bone grafts occur a week and a half ago. Please help me understand this... This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/1493970'>Horizontal Bone Loss - scared of losing teeth</a>.
Avatar n tn The periodontist wants to section the bridge and keep one tooth in tact on the end. The other end of the bridge will have the tooth pulled. (the middle tooth is already gone) She wants to do a costly bone graft in the area where she will extract the tooth. She says my jaw bone loss is extensive at this point. If I am getting a partial plate that will cover this area, is the graft really necessary? Thank you.
Avatar n tn My oral surgeon told me the fragments were b/c of blood loss to the bone and in time the bone would heal its self and the dead pieces would come out on their own. I have read some articles on osteonecrosis after tooth extraction and want to know if I have anything serious to worry about. I am particularly concerned about the infections. Can he go in and clean up the bone?
Avatar f tn Having a tongue ring for 10 years casued the gum on the back of that tooth to wear away and caused the bone loss, which resulted in my tooth being loose. Once I discovered this, I went to the dentist in 2006 to see what they could do. I was told that all I needed was a deep cleaning- aka scaling. I had this done a few weeks later. And after - my tooth was still loose. I waited about 6 months to go back. At this point I was told I had to have the dental surgery.
Avatar m tn The horror stories will also include having the tooth and the neighboring teeth just fall out from bone loss due to infection. Please make that appt ASAP. You say it's already been three years since that first infection. Time will grow short for the life of those teeth without dental help. Hope this helps.
Avatar f tn I have chronic periodontitis and severe bone loss. Unfortunately, #6 needs to be extracted. My dentist proposes to extract the tooth and when the site heals perform a block bone graft (there isn't enough bone for a socket perservation). Originally ridge augmentation, GTR, and block bone graft were going to be perfomed at time of the extraction. After studyng my X-rays my dentist changed his mind. I'm disappointed and concerned; I believe that the bone in that area will recede even more.
Avatar f tn I never had any problems with my gums bleeding at all or any cavities but found that there was alot of bone loss in my teeth because of plaque buildup around the tooth root and down in the gums. I went to my periodontist and had to have deep root planing and scaling. Please go to your dentist and see if it that may be it.
1397822 tn?1294283134 with risks of impact damage to adult teeth, the roof of the mouth or other tissues. Crowding may also occur and brings with it the risk of early periodontal disease and tooth loss. Retained deciduous teeth only worsen existing crowding. That said, crowding in brachycephalic breeds is considered "normal" for the breed, though it frequently results in periodontal disease with age.
560282 tn?1215980208 tooth, it may be possible that the infection has loosen the tooth a little bit in terms of bone loss and that with the clearing of the infection, the bone should regenerate and tighten the tooth. As for orthodontic treatment, you would have to ask your dentist as to why he won't or is hesitant to make a referral. If your mouth is healthy, there shouldn't be any reason not to do orthodontics if that's what you want.
Avatar f tn When I look inside my I had an abscess tooth 2 weeks ago, the dentist put me on an atibiotic (Z-pak)and then I went back to him to begin a root canal. He couldnt complete & sent me to an endodontist the same day. He also began the root canal but was unable to finish as the infection had gotten so thick in two days that it wouldnt drain even with lancing my gum above the tooth. He put me on Clindamycin and set up for me to come back in 12 days.
