The most common cause of bone loss is tooth loss left unreplaced, especially multiple teeth, and can also be caused by chronic periodontitis. ⁠

In the case of periodontitis, the bacteria gradually eat away at the underlying jawbone and at the periodontal ligaments that connect the tooth to the bone.⁠

Depending on the case, many times Dr. Ray uses bone grafting to repair damaged and lost bone around teeth that have suffered from severe gum disease.⁠

A bone graft not only replaces lost bone but also stimulates the jawbone to regrow and eventually replaces the bone graft with the patient’s own, healthy bone. ⁠
