What are the Causes of Jaw Bone Melting?
The jawbone left empty after tooth extraction naturally melts. In order for the bone not to melt, a load must be placed on the bone. This mechanism is very similar to the thinning of our broken arm and leg bones after casting. Melting of the jaw bones is prevented if an implant is applied to this area.
One of the important factors in jaw bone meltdown is cyst and tumor-like formations that cause jawbone meltdown. Habits such as clenching and grinding cause the jawbone to melt.
