Bone Augmentation

When there is not enough bone tissue in the teeth and roots bone growth treatments are applied. Restoration of dental bone tissue can provide support for implant solutions.

Implants help restore the natural dentition and help to avoid removable dentures. Implants have a lifelong function. However, for an implant to last a lifetime, it must be supplied with sufficient bone throughout bones in thickness as well as in height. So that there is enough space for the implantation.

If there is not enough bone substance in the horizontal, the vertical or both, the bone must be constructed in such a way that the criteria for implantation are met. This treatment is called bone augmentation.

Bone replacement materials are used for the construction. This bone substitute material is either synthetically produced in the form of small grains (granules) or obtained from nature.

As attachment material for the bone replacement are biocompatible synthetical membranes. Membranes are self-dissolving (resorbable) that do not need to be removed. The membranes have the task of separating the bone from the connective tissue. The bone should be able to develop undisturbed.

In cases with limited bone availability for placing implants, or due to restorative considerations, bone augmentation may be the best therapy choice as it offers an opportunity for augmenting lost bony structure and often leads to improved esthetic outcomes.

The choice whether or not primary bone augmentation is needed depends on a number of factors: the amount of bone lacking; the area within the dental arch; feasibility of implant placement in a proper position and with primary stability of implant; the expected size of implant surface exposure at the time of implant placement.

Bone regenerative procedures can be performed using a wide variety of techniques and grafting materials that improves the lifetime of implant, chewing function and esthetic results.
