Over time, if there are no teeth fixed to your jaw, the jawbone begins to lose its strength and deteriorate. This often leaves a condition in which there isn’t enough bone suitable for placement of dental implants. In these situations, dentists cannot help patients because it requires an expert with the right training.
Thankfully, an oral and maxillofacial surgeon like Dr. Gocke has that expertise. With advanced biological technology, we have the ability to grow bone where needed.
