Bone Augmentation

There must be an adequate amount of bone material available for an implantation – proper quantity and quality of bone substance is a major requirement for a successfull implantation, what means that the jaw needs to have health bone to support the dental implants and to hold them securely. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. In some patients, the quantity and/or the quality of the bone is/are compromised. In such cases it is necessary to build up bone and thus, to create the basic conditions for the implantation and the long-term hold of the implant.

There are numerous procedures and treatment methods allowing us to build up the bone at the required location and to place the implant in the correct position. A frequently used method is the so-called sinus lift, a surgical procedure that aims to increase the amount of bone in the upper jaw by sacrificing some of the volume of the maxillary sinus. The procedure is completed in our office.

Dependent on the initial situation we individually decide which treatment method we will use. While doing so, we always strive to treat every one of our patients as effectively, gently and safely as possible.

FAQs about Bone Augmentation

Is bone augmentation always necessary before an implantation?

Nein. Erfüllt das Knochenangebot in Hinblick auf Quantität und Qualität die erforderlichen Voraussetzungen, dann ist vor der Implantation kein

No. If the bone material fulfills the necessary requirements in regard to quantity and quality, no bone augmentation is needed in order to perform an implantation. However, if such is not the case, we are also often able to spare our patients bone augmentation procedures. The use of digital volume tomography (DVT), an imaging modality, makes it possible to create a three-dimensional representation of jaw and tooth structures, which allows a better analysis of bone structures. Thanks to the more accurate analysis of bone structures it is possible to make better use of the bone material available, so that in some cases we can avoid bone augmentation procedures.
