Successful implantation requires a sufficient amount of bone material in the patient so that the implant can be securely anchored. Unfortunately, when a tooth is missing for a long period of time, the patient's own bone material gradually diminishes, as this part of the dentition does not receive the natural chewing load, i.e. the blood supply necessary for its nutrition.  Patients who decide on implantation 6 months after tooth extraction already face the need for bone grafting, or bone augmentation.

Bone augmentation — is the augmentation of bone material at the site of the future implant. Bone grafting on the upper jaw in the lateral areas requires, in addition to the augmentation of material, additional manipulations to raise the bottom of the maxillary sinus and is called sinus lifting.

Materials for bone grafting

Bone augmentation requires osteomaterial, which comes in several types:

  1. Autogenous, i.e. your own bone material. It is taken from donor areas, for example, from the part of the jaw where the eighth teeth are located. This material is the fastest and easiest to graft, but requires additional surgery to harvest the tissue.
  2. Allogeneic osteomaterial — another person's bone tissue that is carefully sterilized and processed.
  3. Xenogenic — osteomaterial of animal origin. Usually taken from pigs or cattle. The bone material is carefully sterilized and processed into pellets or bone blocks.
  4. Alloplastic — an osteomaterial of synthetic calcium phosphate origin.
Bone grafting procedure
1
Consultation, 3D scan
2
Oral sanitation
3
The administration of anesthesia before surgery ensures that the procedure is painless.
4
Gingival and periosteal incision to access an area of atrophic bone
5
Bone material placement and fixation with special screws
6
The application of a special membrane, which ics the material, protects against the penetration of microorganisms.
7
Suturing
8
Suture removal after 7-10 days

Recommendations after bone grafting

Care of the oral cavity after bone grafting should be very carefully to prevent the introduction of bacteria into the surgical site and avoid inflammation. It is better to brush your teeth with a soft brush without pressure and active friction on the sutures.

You can drink painkillers and antibiotics that your doctor recommends to ease the healing process.

It is strictly forbidden to expose the oral cavity to temperature changes: eat too hot food, visit a bath, sauna, take a hot bath.

It is necessary to avoid mechanical and chemical traumatization of the area of surgery: eat hard, sharp, acidic foods.

Complications after bone grafting

A possible complication after surgery may be inflammation or rejection of the bone material. Complications occur in only 1-3% of cases, most often due to non-compliance with recommendations.

Swelling, slight redness and bruising in the first few days after surgery — are natural body reactions and are not complications.

Bone grafting — a necessary link for quality long-lasting implantation. Methods and materials for bone grafting in modern dentistry are safe and technologically advanced. If you choose a competent doctor whom you trust and follow the recommended care before and after surgery, the operation will be easy and painless.
