Each case in dental implantology, as well as every patient is unique. It explains the dentists’ passion and love for their job. Their success is the same as the delight of Sherlock Holmes, when he solved complex but interesting cases. Such a parallel between medicine and fiction seems amazing only at first sight. The point is that people come to both the famous detective and a successful dentist with their own prehistory. And to understand this health history and make the right decisions is the same art as literature. This is the fact the company Bio3 Implants proves with its successful work, creating possibilities to return the beauty and health, even in very difficult cases.
For example, if it is necessary to fix implant on the place of the tooth lost many years ago, surgical pre- treatment for bone augmentation by various methods is provided, because the reduction of osseous tissue is an irreversible process after the loss of one or more teeth. Lack of loading has changed its structure, which creates problems for implant insertion.
There is another clinical situation – not enough space for implant in the dentition. These anatomical features create circumstances when there is no place for implant in the bone for attachment. Lack of osseous tissue or its atrophy is a quite common problem that patients usually face while preparing for the installation of implants.
In this situation, doctors have to look for alternative ways to solve a problem or to build up bone during dental implantation. In modern implantology there are lots of reliable methods of osseous tissue expansion for dental implants installation.
The two most widespread methods – using special membranes and bone block grafting.
It should be noted that small defects are successfully eliminated by using any of these methods, the amount of different risks and complications is the same. Each technique has several advantages, indications and contraindications, and choice of it is a specific clinical case.
Discussing methods, we should add that one technique involves using titanium plates, membranes and the other one – the bone (donor) block derived usually from chin or the back part of lower jaw bone. Block is transplanted to the area with a bone deficiency fixing it with titanium screws. The use of membranes helps to avoid unpleasant for the patient bone block sampling, and the postoperative period after the membrane grafting is easier and more comfortable.
The amount of information that is now available about bone augmentation and restoration techniques in the Internet is large enough, but even after studying this topic, the most comprehensive answer you get only after consultation with dentist in charge, after examination and diagnostics. And believe me, an experienced dentist will cope with this task even better than Sherlock Holmes, because the detective did not have equipment and materials support that modern dentistry is provided thanks to products of the company Bio3 Implants.
