Injerto óseo para implantes

Tengo suficiente hueso?

Después de la extracción del diente, if the walls of the socket are very thick, they will usually fill naturally with bone in two to three months. Sin embargo, when the walls of your socket are very thin (such as in your upper and lower front teeth), this type of healing will not be as predictable. En estas situaciones, a menudo se coloca un injerto de hueso en el momento de la extracción del diente para ayudar a su cuerpo a llenar el zócalo vacío con hueso. Este paso se mantendrá la anchura y el volumen del hueso para que se necesita la colocación de implantes varios meses más tarde.

There may be inadequate bone for implant placement if your tooth was removed many years ago and your bony ridge is extremely thin. In this case, un injerto de hueso puede ser colocado junto el hueso fino y permitió curar hasta por seis meses. After the graft has fused to your pre-existing bone, the ridge will be re-entered and the implant placed. Bone grafting is usually a relatively comfortable office procedure.

You may also need bone grafting if the sinus cavities in your upper jaw are very large, or very low, and extend into the tooth-bearing areas. This often occurs when teeth in the back of a person’s upper jaw have been removed many years before, and the amount of bone available for implant placement is limited. Un procedimiento de injerto de "sino” is then required. Más amenudo, it is performed in the office with local anesthesia and perhaps sedation. During this procedure, the membrane that lines the sinus will be located and elevated. Bone will then be added to restore the bone height and ensure that dental implants of an adequate length can be placed. This procedure often can be performed at the time of implant placement.
