The prerequisite for the insertion of an implant is the sufficient quantity and the appropriate quality of the bone substance. If this is not sufficient in the upper jaw, bone must be built up.
Bone augmentation is a collective term for a wide variety of procedures that vary greatly in terms of effort and difficulty as well as costs.
When is a bone augmentation necessary?
- For assistance with inserting implants
- For jaw reconstruction due to major bone damage
- To preserve teeth that have lost their grip as a result of periodontitis
- To build up the destroyed bone after root tip resection or cyst removal
- Thickening of the bony floor of the maxillary sinus (maxillary sinus)
