¿That is the regeneration and reconstruction of the jaw bone


During the last decades has developed enormously so implantology current loss of teeth can be fixed in most cases by placing dental implants. However it is very important to place these implants in ideal position the existence of a sufficient bone volume in both width and height. This has been developed numerous techniques that now allow us to regeneration or reconstruction of such defects in the jaws.

¿, consisting in and as it gets regenerate bone


Luckily we now have numerous alternatives. First would talk of autologous bone grafts, bone from the patient, for those cases of small or medium-sized defects can be obtained from adjacent or neighboring areas at the same defect. And in cases where we need as much bone for reconstruction obtain in remote areas of the mouth. However these techniques can sometimes be annoying to some patients and have also of techniques such as guided bone regeneration by allowing us the use of biomaterials and bone regeneration biomembranes easiest one for small and medium defects.

¿, in which case one must resort to these techniques ?¿are final


Many patients suffer from bone loss that naturally after the loss of their teeth or periodontal disease have suffered. Each case is studied comprehensively through a series of tests, starting orthopantomography and allowing us to make a series of measures to assess bone loss almost always will make a Denta Scan or dental scanner that offers a vision in all dimensions maxillary bones. Normally we will make a series of measurements that allow us to calculate the amount of bone necessary, at other times patient use photographs that show the dimension of bone loss, and in many cases will make a virtual planning by computer to calculate what the ideal position implant and what would be the need for bone grafting or we have to regenerate. In many cases the patient's own models also performed, in which we will also do a simulation of the final implant position perfect. We can consider that these techniques are final and, in fact, we are reviewing patients we operated some 20 years ago and perfectly maintain bone volume.
