As periodontists, Dr. Tanur and Dr. Ovadia are both highly trained and expert in bone grafting procedures to revive misplaced bone. Both docs are also board-certified periodontists, a standing earned by solely 10% of periodontists. Board certification happens after passing an intensive and rigorous examination on all periodontal idea and procedures. What causes bone loss?
