Dental Bone Grafting

When a tooth is lost there will be bone loss. The longer the tooth is gone the more bone loss we can expect to take place

Time Scale: 1 day

 

It is the name given to the materials applied in cases of insufficient bone during operations performed in the human body and mouth.

 

These materials are divided into 4 groups according to their sources.

 

  1. Autogenous grafts: Graft material is taken from different parts of the same organism.
  2. Allogeneic grafts: This material is taken from the same species that are genetically different.
  3. Xenografts: Graft materials derived from different species (cattle, pig, coral, etc.).
  4. Alloplastics: Synthetic graft materials (tricalcium phosphate).

 

Guided Bone Regeneration

 

Independent of the bone grafts explained above, this is the method of creating new bone tissue on a defect-formed  area by preventing the migration of soft tissue (epithelial and connective tissue) into the cavity by using a resorbable membrane -a cover- without using graft materials.

 

Again, the chance of success is increased by using both the resorbing membrane and the graft material simultaneously.
