Bone regeneration

A variety of techniques and materials are used to restore the necessary volume of bony tissue for supporting dental implants.
Guided bone regeneration is a frequently used procedure for hard tissue reconstruction.

The development of bone augmentation procedures has allowed placement of dental implants into jaw bone areas lacking sufficient bone for standard implant placement. Thus,

the indications for implants have broadened to include jaw regions with bone defects and those with a bone anatomy that is unfavorable for implant anchorage.

After an exhaustive study of the osseous structures where placing a dental implant is needed, your implantologist will discuss with you the most appropriate technique for increasing the needed osseous tissue or correcting any bone defects. The area where correction is most commonly needed is that of the maxillary sinuses and jaw.

This procedure is performed in an operating room and under IV sedation overseen by a certified anesthesiologist who specializes in this type of surgery.
