Bone graft at the same time as the extraction procedure
In implantology, complete bone integration is very important for implant success.
A preliminary evaluation of the bone volume is essential, to be started even before the extraction. Preserving the availability of bone for the surgical insertion necessary for dental implantation is a crucial aspect.
Some cases occur with an easy extraction and with minimal bone loss, but there are cases in which, due to an inflammation caused by endodontic operations, or for a periodontal bacterial infection, there may be fractures with consequent loss of even significant amounts of bone. In these latter cases, insertion of synthetic bone, in the form of biomaterials, makes it possible to prevent more complex bone reconstruction.
Pre-implant bone reconstruction
The surgical insertion of special synthetic bones that are conductive or osteoinductive, allows to recreate the bone even in the many cases in which implantology is not recommended, due to the lack or scarcity of bone volume.
Maxillary sinus lift
In upper molars bone mass is often lower due to the presence of paranasal sinuses. A simple operation under local anesthesia allows to recreate the sufficient mass for the insertion of implants. This type of operation is performed with “piezoelectric surgery”. We are talking about an instrument that allows access to the breast without damaging the mucosa, while ensuring a high level of safety and high success rates in bone grafting.
Mini-elevation of the maxillary sinus
We speak instead of a mini rise when we are in presence of reduced bone height but still sufficient for the stabilization of the plant and we want to insert normal length implants.
With this procedure the volume is increased and leveled, creating the right basis for the insertion of the implant, all with a minimally invasive activity.
Increased horizontal bone thickness
Cases of bone resorption (concave sinkings) caused by traumas or dental pathologies are not rare, but also by extractions and the use of removable prostheses.
In these cases with a bone removal from the mandibular branch, or with grids or membranes (whose technical term is GBR “Guided Bone Rigeneration”) special grafts are created that allow us to solve the problem.
