In the case of longstanding tooth loss or after accidents, the jawbone has often regressed (resorbed). Using 3D X-ray procedures, we determine how much bone is still present.
By bone augmentation, in most cases an implant can be placed despite the bone loss.
Bone augmentation can be performed in both the lower and upper jaw and ensures that the implant can be securely anchored in the jawbone. We use only the patient's own bone. This bone is placed in or on top of the weakened jawbone.
From the knowledge of the natural dentition of humans, we know that an implant-supported denture comes closest to the natural conditions.
For this reason, an implant in a built-up bone has the longest life compared to other types of dentures. You regain the quality of life you are used to.
Surgery and dental implant in Pirmasens
We will be happy to explain to you in detail how bone augmentation can restore a functioning, stable and natural dentition.
Bone augmentation is particularly important because we want to work with you to achieve a long service life for your implant as well as its proper function.
To this end, it is essential that the implant is surrounded by sufficient bone material. In addition, there may be other anatomical features that suggest bone augmentation, for example, consideration of the course of the nerves or the maxillary sinus.
