Do You Need Tooth Bone Graft
on Dental Implant Procedures?
Dental implants are one solution to the problem of missing teeth. Dental implants are considered the best solution to overcome the problem of tooth loss because they are able to replace the role of natural teeth to the roots of the teeth so that their resistance is very good for a very long period of time. Unfortunately, not a few patients who want to do dental implant procedures lose the height of the alveolar bone as a support for teeth and dental implants due to long-term tooth loss due to masticatory pressure when chewing in edentulous areas. Therefore, sometimes additional procedures in the form of bone grafts need to be performed during the dental implant procedure. In this article, we will discuss bone grafts in dental implant procedures.
A bone graft is a procedure that uses transplanted bone to repair and grow missing jawbone. One of the factors that determine the success of a dental implant is the ability of the bone to support the restoration or the implant used to replace the tooth. The implant must be firmly embedded into the jawbone for long-term survival so that the bone graft can strengthen and thicken the implant site. Bone grafts can help increase the amount of bone and improve the shape of the bone so that it can function properly to support dental implants. Bone grafting is a surgical procedure that can be performed in a clinic. Bone graft material is material from the patient's own body or can also use artificial or synthetic materials.
In the dental implant procedure, prior to a bone graft, the sinus is removed. The maxillary sinuses are a pair of air-filled cavities under the facial bones. With age, the sinus cavity is getting bigger closer to the maxillary teeth. The sinuses may enlarge to reach the space where the tooth has been extracted. This makes the dental implant difficult to install because there is not enough bone to support the dental implant. In this case a sinus removal procedure is required to replace the amount of bone lost.
Bone graft procedures can be performed using several techniques, namely:
Block Bone Grafting: Bone is taken from the patient's own body, then placed in the area where the dental implant will be placed.
Particulate Bone Grafting: In cases of minimal bone loss, dental implants can be placed immediately. To close the implant, bone particles from bovine bones, artificial materials or the patient's own bone can be used.
Socket Preservation: The part of the jawbone that holds the teeth in place is called the tooth socket. The bone that supports the teeth will naturally erode when the tooth is extracted. Donor bone fragments are placed into the tooth socket immediately after the tooth is extracted or approximately one to two weeks after the tooth is extracted. The situation continues to be evaluated for 4 to 6 months, then dental implants can be placed.
Bone grafts are needed under certain conditions to ensure that dental implants are installed properly and can last for a long time. Examination and consultation before carrying out a dental implant procedure is very important to know the patient's condition, especially the height and thickness of the alveolar bone where the dental implant will be placed.
