A bone graft is a procedure by which, through oral and maxillofacial surgery, is achieved partly regenerate bone that has been lost. Bone grafts are needed when you want to replace your teeth with implants and there is not enough bone for optimal results. In many cases artificial materials used to regenerate bone but more reliable and ensures a higher percentage of success is that the bone that is used is the patient's own. Bone grafts are usually extracted from the chin area or the angle of the jaw and can be extracted in the form of particles or blocks.

The ultrasonic surgery has brought a revolution when implementing interventions that need to work on the bone. This technology allows routing or cutting the bone without producing heat and without affecting the surrounding tissues. Most importantly his 'selectivity', only cut what you want without affecting the tissues around this is the big difference with traditional saws and cutters where it was impossible to prevent cercanose tissues were affected either by friction or by heating.

This selectivity results in two major benefits to patients. Safety and comfort Safety injuries because they operated outside the comfort zone and occur because Asher as selective significantly reduces inflammation and postoperative pain. Currently there are very powerful and efficient ultrasonic motors that guarantees the best results in all procedures requiring work on the jawbone or jaw: bone grafts, orthognathic surgery, periodontal surgery, etc.
