During the bone graft procedure, we rebuild the bone material when there is not enough quantity and quality of bone available to perform the dental implant.
In the bone replacement process, we may use biomaterials or take the bone from another area within the mouth.
1. In most cases, granules are used for bone graft. This method is very successful, as these substitutes stimulate and promote the formation of new bone tissue in the area. When sealing these areas with granules, we also cover with collagen membranes, and we leave the area to heal.
2. Bone grafting is also possible by transplanting your own bone tissue. In this case, they will take the required size of bone from a given area of the jawbone. The graft will be held in place with titanium screws, and covered with special membranes – its selection varies. Bone replacement is performed under sterile conditions and can be performed under local anesthesia as well as conscious sedation. The recovery time is 3-6 months on average. The method of bone grafting procedure (e.g. lateral augmentation, sinus lift) is individually planned, as it is based on the evaluation of case-specific and preoperative Cone Beam CT scans.
