A missing tooth can detract from your appearance, but it can also create other problems that are not easy to see. A missing tooth means a missing tooth root, and the pressure exerted by the root when you bite and chew helps keep your jaw strong. To replace the lost bone tissue and help prepare you for a dental implant, our prosthodontist may want to see you for an appointment for a bone graft in Phoenix, Arizona. If you would like to see if you could benefit from this treatment, call Valley Dental Group at 602-956-2260. One of our team members can schedule your appointment with Dr. George Eifler.
