Your teeth do more than help you eat, speak and smile. In fact, the pressure exerted on your jaw by your teeth when you eat helps to keep your jaw healthy and strong. When you lose a tooth, you lose that pressure and your jaw begins to deteriorate which is also known as resorption. To maintain the health of your jaw or prepare it for a dental implant, our dentist can give you a bone graft in Castle Rock and Castle Pines, Colorado. If you are thinking about implants and would like to find out if you need a bone graft, call Dentistry at Happy Canyon at 303-688-3800 for your appointment with Dr. Travis Haws.
