Reverse Your Bone Loss with Our Treatments

Your jawbone is the backbone of your smile; it shapes the way you smile, eat, speak, and interact with others. Time passes, and as we age, our bones can become more and more delicate. Gum disease, infection, and advanced tooth decay are major causes of bone loss in your jaw.

Without a healthy and strong jawbone, the natural contours of your face degrade, the fullness of the chin and facial structure starts to diminish, and in most cases, the surrounding teeth can begin to shift and tilt. Fortunately, with modern dental technology, rebuilding the foundation of your smile is made possible.  

At DaVinci Smiles, we can help you restore lost bone due to periodontal disease, tooth loss, or advanced gum recession. Our bone grafting procedure can be the key to saving teeth that have been weakened by periodontal disease, rebuilding the lost bone structure, providing strength and support for remaining teeth, and ultimately paving the way for successful implant-supported restorations. Our experienced dental professionals will evaluate your unique needs to create an individualised treatment plan tailored to your specific situation. Don’t let bone loss prevent you from having the beautiful, healthy smile you deserve.

What Causes You Not To Have Enough Bone

Your bone structure can be affected by various factors like age, smoking, gum disease, and more. A bone graft is a procedure that replaces lost bone – allowing us to restore your jawbone’s natural form and provide the necessary support for implants.

Periodontal disease

Periodontal disease, or gum disease, is a chronic inflammation of the gums. It occurs when harmful bacteria in plaque build up between your teeth and gums. This uncontrolled gum disease is the most common cause of bone loss. The bacteria in the plaque and tartar release toxins that irritate the gums. The toxins also attack the bones and connective tissues, leading to progressive bone loss.


When a tooth is knocked out or damaged to the extent that it can’t be saved, bone stimulation stops, and bone loss occurs. Trauma can also lead to infection, which can spread to the surrounding bone and cause bone loss. Furthermore, trauma can cause damage to the nerves, leading to the death of the tooth and subsequent resorption of the surrounding bone.


Some systemic illnesses, such as diabetes and osteoporosis, can lead to loss of jawbone over time. Diabetes can weaken the body’s ability to heal properly and increases the risk of infection, which can lead to bone loss. On the other hand, osteoporosis causes weak and fragile bones, increasing the risk of fractures and bone loss.


Ageing is a natural process that can lead to bone loss in several ways. As we age, our body’s ability to heal and regenerate bone decreases, resulting in jawbone deterioration. In addition, age-related hormonal changes, such as a decrease in testosterone levels in men and oestrogen levels in women, can also contribute to bone loss.

Frequently Asked Questions About Not Having Enough Bone

We understand that bone loss can be a very worrying issue for many of our patients. Our team is always on hand to answer any queries you may have.

Bone loss is a serious issue that can lead to serious health complications if left unchecked. Without a strong and healthy bone structure, you are at risk for developing a sunken face and more dental health issues. It can affect your remaining teeth and cause difficulty eating and speaking. Consequently, it’s essential to speak with your dentist to discuss treatments and interventions to preserve the roots of your teeth or address any issues related to bone loss.

The jawbone is the support structure of your teeth. If you lose bone, it can cause the shape of your face to change and look sunken in or older than your actual age. Here at DaVinci Smiles, we strongly advise our patients to seek treatment for bone loss as early as possible to prevent such complications from arising. We offer consultations for those who wish to discuss their options for addressing bone loss. The team of experienced dentists at DaVinci Smiles are here to listen, understand, and provide you with a suitable treatment option for your bone loss issue. Contact us today to get started!

Thanks to modern technology and advanced dental techniques, dentists are now able to effectively reverse bone loss through bone grafting. Bone grafting is a pre-implant surgery procedure that replaces lost bone with graft material. This is the most common treatment for patients with severe bone loss. An incision is made in the gum line to access the underlying bone, and a bone graft is placed in the area. Once the transplant site is healed and healthy, your dentist can move forward with implant placement for a restored and healthy smile.

If you have lost some teeth or are suffering from mild gum disease, addressing it early on is essential to prevent further bone loss. Mild gum disease and tooth decay can progress to more serious conditions if not addressed promptly. That’s why we advise you to always practise good oral hygiene and to regularly visit your dentist at least every six months for routine check-ups.

Contact us immediately if you have any concerns about your teeth or gums. We can assist you to determine the appropriate course of action to keep your teeth and gums healthy long-term.
