Not enough bone for implants: the problem
How come I have not enough bone for implants?
Jaw bone loss is a natural process, that occurs after you lose one or several teeth. Wearing dentures, over time, can make this process (bone atrophy) worse.
That is why many patients who have worn dentures for a long time develop very small jaws and a shrunken face appearance, and then they try to find a solution.
When you are looking into upper implants, your dentist may tell you that there is not enough bone for implants. Even when there are teeth some still present, they may be affected by infections or gum disease, which can also cause your jawbone to become deficient.
