Bone structure in dental implants
For our teeth to have a good hold in the jaw, a certain strength and stability is essential. In particular, the volume (height and width) and the quality of the jawbone are crucial for this. In addition, these dental properties are an important prerequisite when it comes to the implantation of dental implants. After all, the implant that you receive from one of our dental teams in Turkey can only grow into your bone if enough substance is available!
Which factors contribute to bone loss?
Bone degeneration (atrophy) is a common result of tooth loss. In addition to genetic predispositions or various illnesses, accidents (for example in sports) can lead to tooth loss. Since our body always strives for a compact form as a biological system, the shape of the bone changes – it is gradually degraded. In order to both balance and counteract degradation, we offer professional bone augmentation in Turkey. For more information contact our Aesthetic Travel Team in Antalya.
Which bone surgery methods are there?
After extensive consultation, diagnostics and planning, our dental team will build your bone so that your teeth will again have optimal fit in the jaw. In Turkey, the sinus lift is primarily used as a bone surgery measure – the internal and external sinus lifts are differentiated. The goal of the sinus lift is to fill a small area of the paranasal sinuses (maxillary sinus) with bone augmentation materials. In the internal sinus lift, the bone substitute to be transplanted is inserted into the jaw through the drill hole of the dental implant. In the case of the external sinus lift, on the other hand, a small “side window” is milled in the paranasal sinus bone, whereby the subsequent integration of the bone augmentation material takes place.
Bone Splitting / Spreading can be used as a further bone augmentation method. Here, the residual bone of the patient is split or pulled apart so that the body is stimulated by the resulting cavity to form their own new bone cells.
Furthermore, there is the so-called socket preservation. This is done in direct connection to a tooth extraction. Here, the filling of the bone alveoli and the parallel sealing of the tissue, the loss of bone substance is prevented.
