    Hi,

    I am writing to see if someone can help me out. My girlfriend has been without teeth for 12 yrs. No dentures either. She is in the beginning of seeking treatment (insurance issues) What concerns me and I am not a radiologist. The xrays she had look very different and from my understanding when you lose your teeth you also lose bone in the jaw.

    1st pic is xray in 2017 - you clearly can see the dips where the bone loss is on her arches
    2nd pic xray in 2018 - doesn't look even the same - the dips appear to be gone and look more flat.

    She can't regrow bone, right?
