Bone augmentation is a term that describes a variety of procedures used to "build" bone so that dental implants can be placed or if we need to perform a Sinus Lift. These procedures typically involve grafting (adding) bone or bone-like materials to the jaw.
Loss or resorption of mandibular bone alters and affects the height and density of the alveolar crest. Common causes may be the extraction of teeth, poorly done dental work, or periodontal (gum) disease, such loss may also be due to some sort of trauma.
The loss or resorption of bone from the jawbone, can be restored by using bone grafts. Bone grafting is a surgical procedure that involves grafting bone to reconstruct the jawbone below the gum line where the teeth attach to it. A bone graft is performed under sedation or with anesthesia. At Dentcare Cancun, we perform this surgery with great success. This procedure’s duration is approximately 45 minutes long and it is performed as a preparation for other dental procedures, such as the placement of dental implants or Sinus Lift.
The benefits of a maxillary bone graft are very important since they contribute to the formation of bone where there has been significant loss, as well as the restoration of the physiognomy of the mandible in general. A healthy jawbone allows teeth to remain in place, preventing tooth loss. This loss of teeth can cause deformations, particularly in the area around the mouth which unfortunately, tends to be very obvious. At Dentcare Cancun, we are aware of how worrisome this situation can be for our patients, and through a precise diagnosis we are able to suggest the proper procedure that will help to reverse any problem that afflicts him or her.
