Symptoms You May Have Bone Loss Starting in Your Jaw

Posted on 5/29/2020 by Office
Having a strong jaw is very important for your oral health. Your teeth are connected to your jawbone. This connection is what keeps your teeth from falling out of your mouth.

They also may not be as comfortable as they originally were. Lastly, your teeth may start to shift forward in your face. If you experience any of these problems, make an appointment. We will determine if it is something you need to worry about and if it is, we can begin deciding the best course of action to take....
