Reconstruction – bone regeneration
Continuous development of implantation treatment gives the possibility of implanting implants in places where there is not enough bone tissue. This is made possible by the use of biomaterials of coccopoebones enabling the restoration of the disappearing bone. Controlled bone regeneration allows bone tissue to grow in the necessary location to properly locate the implant in terms of future prosthetic reconstruction. The decision to use controlled bone regeneration is made after radiological analysis. Sometimes this necessity is revealed only during the procedure, as a routine X-ray examination does not always give a full clinical picture of the treatment field. Controlled bone regeneration is carried out mostly including implantation. Sometimes with very large bone defects and no potential stabilization, I perform bone reconstruction as a separate procedure, and implants are implanted only after bone tissue is formed – usually after 5~9 months. Another indication for bone reconstruction is the extraction wounds after the teeth removed – especially when future-based implantological treatment is planned. The procedure itself consists in placing the biomaterial at the site of the planned bone reconstruction and its appropriate shape. The whole is covered with a barrage collagen membrane and sewn. The use of resorbowal collagen dam membrane prevents epithelial cells from growing into biomaterial and allows bone tissue growth.
- How often is it necessary to rebuild bones? – statistically, with 40% of implantological procedures, controlled bone regeneration is necessary. Its absence, despite indications, can cause deterioration of the implant's maintenance in the bone and reduce the contact surface of the implant – bone.
- Is the treatment painful? – the procedure is carried out in anesthesia and is completely painless – just like the procedure of implant implantation during which it is most often performed. After the procedure, laser biostimulation is performed to accelerate healing and reduce pain.
- Is it possible to rebuild the bone in any case? – unfortunately not in any case, bone regeneration can be used. The dentist doctor analyzes many factors that influence the ultimate success before the procedure and determines the optimal type of treatment and use of bone reconstruction.
