What causes tooth-related bone loss?

Bone loss is quite frequent, and it is generally caused by missing teeth or severe periodontitis (or peri-implantitis).

Teeth that are missing:

25% of the surrounding bone is lost in the first year after a tooth is removed, and it will continue to wear away over time. Why The pressure and stress of chewing normally strengthens and preserves your jawbone.

The bone resorbs into the body when the pressure is no longer present.

Periodontitis or peri-implantitis is a condition in which bacteria in your mouth eat away at the underlying jawbone that links the tooth (or implant) to the bone.
