Treatment of larger bone defects

What happens when there is not enough bone available?

Accidents, dental traumas or advanced periodontits are just some of many reasons for tooth loss followed by degradation of bone. If the treatment is delayed for too long...

  • the height and/or thickness of the jaw bone diminishes.
  • there is insufficient amount of bone for implant placement.

Sufficient bone is essential to ensure the long-term stability of your dental implants.


How can these bone defects be treated?

There are two clinical situations that can occur:

  • insufficient width of the bone wall
  • insufficient height of the bone wall

Bone regeneration in larger bone defects requires some form of grafting in order to restore volume, stability and ultimately regenerate bone.
