Bone augmentation

If dental implants are to be successfully inserted, there must be sufficient bone mass available in the jaw.

Autologous bone augmentation in the upper and lower jaw

Bone tissue is constantly being remodelled; it does this in response to differential loading. If the stress picture changes in the jaw region – owing, for example, to tooth loss – the bone degenerates: it atrophies. This bone atrophy occurs in all dimensions, i.e. the toothless sections of the jaw become narrower and lose height.
