If you have lost a tooth to an extraction, decay or gum disease, your jawbone can begin to lose its mass, a process known as resorption. This problem can weaken your jaw and make certain restoration options more difficult. If you have been living with a missing tooth for an extended period of time, call Subtle Smiles for an examination and consultation with our dentist. Call our office at 281-491-3626, and one of our team members can schedule your visit with Dr. Martin Youngs to learn more about bone grafting in Missouri City, Texas.
