Bone building - Transplantation of bones

The bone in atrophic jaw sections is not sufficient in height and width for the successful insertion of an implant. It is even less sufficient for the process of healing of the bone-covered implant. Depending on the bone deficit in the jawbone, the bone can be regenerated prior to delayed implantation.

The "golden rule" for a successful, long-lasting and stable bone building is, according to the unanimous opinion of experts, the transplantation of the patient’s own bone (so called autogenous bonecraft).

One’s own bone can in certain cases be grown from a painlessly extracted piece of periosteum (, a modern procedure that we have authoritatively firmly established in Germany.

Wherever it is possible we work with the bone-substitute materials, e.i. without the extraction of one’s own bone.

However, that is only successful where the surrounding bone in OP-area can provide a sufficient nutrition for the buildup of the substitute material.

We have been conducting all kinds of bone-building experiments for many years, partly also in cooperation with Marienkrankenhaus.

Implants protect from bone atrophy

The functional, inner pressure of the bone exerted through a tooth or an implant stops the bone atrophy of the jaw.

A toothless jaw fragment keeps “crunching“ (atrophy), chicks and lips are no more protected, the soft parts of the face cave in. The person looks ”old”.

Dentures that cover gums and jawbones, and therefore do not support the implant, especially contribute to atrophy.

Such dentures must be regularly relined, since the jawbones they cover keep on disappearing as the result of atrophy.

Only with the help of implants is it possible to stop atrophy following the loss of teeth.
