Bone regeneration is a surgical procedure aimed at bone structure and volume, to create the optimum conditions for an implant fixture. Our specialist bone regeneration dentists use a variety of treatments depending diagnostics and dental treatment plan.
Guided bone regeneration
Bone regeneration is used in the case of bone defect, whether it’s the replacement of one, several or all the teeth in the jaw. The guided bone regeneration is based on the use of special materials (graft materials, bone substitutes) and different surgical methods. These materials grow together with the bone and replace it. This process of bone regeneration takes between 4 and 6 months (depends on the used materials and methods), followed by treatment of implant installation.
Preservation of the alveolus
This type of bone regeneration is used after the removal of teeth. In this case, the replacement material is inserted into the cavity created after extraction of the tooth root. This method creates better and safer conditions for the implant fixture, as well as prevention of biological bone loss after removal.
In most cases this is an upgrade from a very narrow bone ridge, to install an implant with the aim to preserve adjacent natural teeth or to aesthetically and functionally replace one or more teeth. There are several techniques of regeneration which depend on the materials used and the volume of the bone to replace.
This is a very efficient way of bone regeneration in situations when there is a major bone loss in the lateral posterior maxilla. It is a surgical procedure where replacement material is incorporated through a small opening in the sinus bone in the sinus floor. Afterwards this becomes the bone and thus abolishes the sinus floor.
