Depending on the amount, the jaw bone has a coherent force on the teeth. For the most part of our lives, the amount of bone in the jaw can be maintained by the chewing mechanism.. When, however, tooth loss occurs, the physical impact (chewing) no longer exists, the bone mass begins to decline and jaw bone loss occurs, as the bone does not play a functional role anymore. They may be lesions, illnesses, accidents that involve the reduction of the jaw bone volume. In these cases, dental bone grafting can help.

What is dental bone grafting?

Dental bone grafting is a surgical procedure which, with the appropriate method, complements the existing bone and allows an implantation in the future. This can be done with autogenous bone, bone substitute materials of animal origin or synthetic bone. More information about the dental bone graft material. Dental bone grafting can be done in the upper as well in the lower jaw.

Dental bone grafting in the upper jaw

Previously, the implants were only used in the lower jaw, as the upper jaw had inferior quality and resulted in a number of difficulties with inserting the implant. Due to the inferior quality of the bone, it was not possible to establish a stabilized condition for the implants in many cases. To solve this problem, they used removable dentures in the past.
Thanks to the developed medicine, removable dentures are not necessary anymore, as dental bone grafting in the upper jaw has become a routine intervention.

As a result of the examinations, the doctor can determine whether a dental bone grafting is required. If yes, then how much additional bone volume is needed.

How long is the recovery?

Recovery can take from 3 to 9 months, depending on the type and extent of the carried out dental bone grafting. The recovery time also depends on the individual’s health. The good condition of the immune system facilitates recovery, as the cell regeneration is faster, so that the healing process is shortened.
