A lost tooth can do more than create an embarrassing space in your smile. It can also cause a loss of bone tissue in your jaw. The health of your jawbone can also be compromised through gum disease. Our periodontists, Dr. Samuel Korkis or Dr. Douglas L. Sweeney, may suggest a bone graft in Troy, Michigan, to restore the health of your jaw or even prepare you for a dental implant. If you live with gum disease or an incomplete smile, contact our team at (248) 267-8900 for your appointment.
