A lost tooth also means a lost tooth root. Without the pressure that the root puts on your jaw when you bite and chew, the bone tissue will begin to deteriorate. This problem can also be the result of advanced periodontal disease. Our dentists, Dr. Jake R. Williams and associates, may be able to resolve this issue with an appointment at Agave Dental Care for a bone graft in El Paso, Texas. If you have been living with a missing tooth or severe gum disease, call our office at 915-755-7697 for an appointment.
