I have been drastically losing bone in my lower jaw at an extremely high and fast rate! I need to know why. I do suffer from degenerative disc disease, degenerative joint disease and spinal stenosis. I've already have had 3 operations on my spine and have been told that I may need a 5th one! I have been taking prescribed pain medication for about 10 years now. Recently I had all my lower teeth removed due to soft and bad teeth that was hereditary. I had 4 implants put in my lower jaw 2 hold my denture in place about 2 years ago. Since then I lost 2 of my implants and I am losing my bottom jaw bone at a very fast rate! I can’t figure why this is happening to me..
