Information on treatment and surgeryBone Graft
A healthy bone is essential when placing implants. For patients that wish to have implants placed but have weak bones or bone resorption. Bone resorption can occur due to chronic periodontitis, pockets of pus at the root of a tooth or extended wear of dentures. A bone graft procedure is completed prior to placement of implants and only after sufficient bone mass has formed, implants are placed. There are cases when bone grafting and implants are done simultaneously, shorting the treatment period, but if the bone is insufficient or weak, implant procedures commence about 3-6 months after the bone grafting. Zeah Dental Hospital can promise successful results of bone grafting and implants, as Zeah’s medical team has accumulated experiences from thousands of implant cases.
Cases of Bone Grafting for Implants
Guided Bone Regeneration (GBR)
Guided bone regeneration stimulates the formation of the bone using a membrane simultaneously with bone grafting when there is not enough bone where the implant will be placed.
Cases that require Bone Grafting for Implants:
Loss of bone may be due to hereditary factors, periodontal disease and neglected tooth decay
- Those with lack of bone mass
- Patients that had tooth extracted due to gum/periodontal disease
- Patients that have lost teeth long ago
- Those who lost alveolar bone due to an accident
- Those with pre-existing dent in bone
Methods of Bone Grafting for Implants:
- Chin Bone: Uses the patient’s own bone, ensuring less side effects and adaptability, but an additional surgery is required for bone extraction
- Allogeneic Bone: Uses bone from a donor that has been processed
- Hetero-osteoplasty: Uses bone from an animal that has been processed
- Synthetic Bone: Uses an artificial bone
