Osteoplasty (bone grafting)
The basis of quality implantation
Bone grafting is an excellent opportunity to keep a charming smile after any injuries or surgical interventions. Even if you lost a few teeth and you did not immediately seek help from specialists, thanks to the bone grafting you can easily eliminate any deficiencies and restore a healthy dentition. Restoration of bone tissue in the dental clinic – is not a fast procedure. It requires a lot of time and work with experienced professionals. In 40% of cases before the implantation it is necessary to carry out the bone tissue restoration. Without the procedure, you risk damaging the gums shortly after the implantation
Osteoplasty is a complex of operative measures aimed at restoring lost bone tissue. In other words, bone grafting is the jaw bone augmentation. Osteoplasty is necessary to restore the volume of bone tissue for the purpose of the implant placement. Only long and wide implants can withstand a large load of chewing muscles for a long time. Accordingly, the larger the implant surface, the longer the period of its functioning. There are cases when the bone tissue loss is so heavy (especially in case of periodontitis) that it is absolutely impossible and nowhere to place an implant. In these cases, bone grafting is first done, and then, after the new bone “surviving”, the implants are placed

Closed sinus-lift technique
This technique lies in the sinus floor elevation and placing the osteoplastic material in the formed space. For example, there is a need to place 3 chewing implants on the upper jaw.
As a result of the bone tissue loss it is impossible to place implants, so that they serve for a very long time. However, it is necessary to restore a small amount of bone tissue. For this, a closed sine-lift operation is performed with simultaneous placement of implants.
First, a through-hole for the future implant is formed. Then through this hole the surgeon gets into the sinus of the upper jaw and elevates the sinus floor mucosa. In the resulting space between the mucosa and the sinus floor, the osteoplastic material is placed through the hole.
Immediately after this, all implants are placed.
Six months after the surgery, a new bone is formed and it is possible to make crowns on implants. The advantage of this method is that the stage of the new bone formation involves the implantation at the same time.
Open sinus-lift technique
In this case, the bone tissue loss is even greater (1-3 mm). Unfortunately, in such cases it is rarely possible to place implants at the same time with the bone grafting, because of the small bone amount for them to be attached.
In this situation, first, an open sine lift procedure is performed. A small hole in the front jaw is made and through this opening the mucous membrane is elevated from the sinus floor. Osteoplastic material is placed in the formed space.
Six months after the new bone formation, the implantation can be started. And six months after the implantation, crowns are prepared.
Appointment to the doctor
How long does it take?
How long will it take from the first visit to the perfect smile?
In dental practice, we use various options for restoring the bone tissue volume on both the upper and lower jaws. In cases where a small bone amount is not enough in width, it is possible to perform bone grafting on the lower jaw simultaneously with the implant placement. But sometimes there are cases with not sufficient bone amount in height. In this case, the implantation cannot be done right away – first the bone grafting is performed (for example, using bone blocks or titanium nets), and then (after 4-6 months) the implants are placed.
Exact terms can be determined only by a specialist after a complete diagnosis and preparation of a treatment plan!
The dental clinic in Mitino was visited by a patient with complaints of missing teeth on the lower jaw. The survey revealed that the teeth were removed more than 5 years ago. The examination showed that there were 5 missing teeth on the lower jaw. The situation was complicated by a sharp decrease in bone tissue, which is very often the case with prolonged absence of teeth.
The patient was offered the implantation followed by the manufacture of permanent crowns
