What causes bone loss in teeth?
The most common cause of jawbone atrophy and loss of the bone around teeth is the loss of a tooth or multiple teeth without replacement.
The jawbone is preserved by the pressure and stimulation of chewing.
Jaw bone disease symptoms
Signs and symptoms of the jaw and joint disorders may include:
- Pain, swelling, redness, or tenderness of the jaw.
- Pain in one or both of the temporomandibular joints.
- Tooth loss
- Jaw stiffness.
- Aching pain in and around the ear.
- Difficulty in chewing or pain while chewing.
- Aching facial pain.
- Locking of the joint, making it difficult to open or close your mouth.
In case one or more of the above symptoms are present, we recommend an immediate visit to the nearest dental setup to further evaluate the condition and treat it the earliest possible.

They work professionally to ensure the best possible approach to treatment.
Osteoporosis of the jaw bone symptoms
Osteoporosis and tooth loss are health problems that affect many elderly men and women, as the bones become less dense and more vulnerable to fracture, and this condition can affect any bone in the body, although the hip bones, spine, and wrist are more often affected. Still, it affects the jawbones as well.
Jaw infection symptoms
The persistence of tooth decay without treatment leads to the spread of the infections to the jaw bone, which means that neglecting treatment leads to the formation of bacteria that cause the inflammation, and the inflammation can spread to the jawbone, causing health problems, including symptoms of jawbone infection or a tooth abscess, which are:
- Mouth or jaw pain.
- Redness or swelling.
- Pus draining from the area
Pain in cheekbone and teeth
Jaw pain can be common, like a toothache, or serious, like a heart attack.
The jawbone, also called the mandible, connects to your skull through a pair of joints, known as the temporomandibular joints, and are located directly in front of the ear, to help open and close the mouth.
The jaws also carry teeth and gums, and they can be sensitive to heat, cold, or pressure, and if you do not keep them clean, they are vulnerable to infection that causes bone pain.
All of this can cause bone pain in case of any neglecting or careless behaviors.
Jaw bone cancer
Jaw tumors and cystic fibrosis, sometimes called dental tumors and cysts, can vary greatly in size and severity.
These growths are usually non-cancerous (benign), but they can be cancerous and invade the surrounding bone and tissue and may displace the teeth.
Dental bone abscess
The abscess arises in the head region due to tooth decay that has not been treated, or gingivitis that has not been addressed, and the abscess forms, and if it is not emptied, the infection may spread to the jaws and other areas of the head, neck and the rest of the body, and it may have serious consequences for life.
The atrophy of jaw bone is a very serious health issue, starting with the change of facial features and extending to a major impact upon one‘s health and social discomfort.
Main causes of jawbone atrophy:
- The bone tissue starts deteriorating in areas of missing teeth as there is no necessary masticatory pressure
- Jawbone deterioration also settles in under dental bridges and removable dentures as there is no masticatory pressure as well
- The jawbone might be damaged by periodontitis
The process of jawbone deterioration and further tooth loss is irreversible – Ilajak Medical with a team of highly experienced and professional dentists can offer the best suitable treatments.
Bone graft from hip to jaw in Turkey
Bone grafting is a surgical procedure to rebuild or repair bone.
Through the grafting of healthy bone tissue, we can reconstruct the lost bone and supportive tissues.
Some people who wish to have dental implants do not have enough bone in their jaw to fix the implants tightly, and they need a treatment called bone grafting.
In bone grafting, bone particles or mass are taken from their bodies or other natural/artificial sources.

By visiting a professional and trustworthy dental setup, bone loss can be prevented by giving the jawbone an artificial tooth with a root that can exert the same or similar pressure as natural teeth.
How to regrow bone around teeth?
Bone can regrow and avoid further bone loss by chewing stimulation or by placing a bone graft by a professional dentist to compensate for bone loss.

Bone graft procedure steps
If you are interested in dental treatment and cosmetic dentistry or dental implants, bone grafting is an important factor to obtain satisfactory and successful results.
A piece of bone is removed from another part of your jaw or body, such as your hip, and implanted into the jawbone. Often, commercially available artificial bones are used.
It takes several months for the bone to be ready for dental implants.
Fortunately, this is a routine procedure and PAIN-FREE.!
Best bone graft material for dental implant
Calcium based materials have been most commonly used as bone graft substitutes. Calcium hydroxyapatite (HA) has been shown in several series to be a useful biocompatible osteoconductive material, which provides a scaffold for bone ingrowth.
Allograft materials are also widely used in dentistry and are preferred by most dental practitioners.

What causes extra bone growth in the mouth?
An impacted tooth can cause excessive bone growth.
Bony growth which is called Tori may be associated with bruxism or tooth clenching and grinding.
The size of the tori may fluctuate throughout life but they do tend to get bigger over time
Another form of bone growth called Exostosis is often the result of some trauma or injury to the gums and bones underneath. Exostosis of the mouth or jaw is called buccal exostosis.
When does your lower jaw stop growing?
Mandibular growth was found to involve an upward and forward rotation, a result of posterior vertical growth exceeding anterior vertical growth.
By the end of your teen years, almost at the age of 15 most of your jaw growth has already happened.
Some men get a small growth spurt in the late teens and very rarely there can be another in the 20s. The jaws stay roughly the same size until the 40s or 50s, at which point the facial skeleton starts to shrink again.
When does the female jaw stop growing?
In females, the jaws usually stop growing around the ages of 16-17.
