The amount of bone directly affects the success of the implant, the height and width of the bone in the region where the implant will be placed is of great importance. In cases where the bone is insufficient, it may be necessary to increase the bone thickness or height with advanced surgical techniques. These procedures can be performed before the implant surgery as well as during the implant operation. Different types of graft materials can be preferred according to the size of the bone defect in the area where the implant will be placed. It should not be forgotten that each case should be evaluated on its own.
Advanced surgical applications are decided after intraoral and x-ray examinations. To increase the amount of bone in the area where the implant will be placed graft materialsamong the people called bone powder Bone particles of human or animal origin, referred to as , are frequently used. The correct and on-site use of graft materials increases the long-term success of the implant. It is very important that the graft materials are reliable products produced in accordance with certain standards, just like the implant material. Sometimes in the form of a piece taken from the chin or another part of the body. block bone grafts It can be used to increase the amount of bone in the area to be implanted. Which of these procedures will be applied or whether they will be used in combination is a decision for the physician to make. Often, if there is a problem in the thickness of the bone, bone powders may be sufficient. If there is an insufficiency regarding the height of the bone, the patient’s own bone is taken and transferred to the required area.
The exact procedure to be applied is a decision that the physician will make after a detailed examination. The use of bone grafts can sometimes prolong the treatment period. If one of the bone augmentation methods was used before the implant operation, it may be necessary to wait for a period of 4-6 months for the bone to mature.
In cases where the bone is insufficient in the last period thin implants or short implants We can make fixed porcelain teeth to our patients without the need for extra costs and extra healing times by using the new developments in the surface properties and macro designs of the implants, allowing us to successfully treat many cases that we used to say cannot be implanted. Of course, in such cases, it is necessary to increase the number of implants in order to reduce the loads on the implants. One of the important factors affecting the long-term success of implants is the design of the porcelain to be made on the implants. Especially in cases where short or thin implants are used, the teeth to be placed on the implant must be placed with a very accurate planning and correctly, otherwise, the loads on the implants may cause excessive tension in the bone and lead to bone resorption. As long as the conditions remain the same, bone loss may progress at an increasing rate, destruction of osseointegration and loss of implants may occur. In order to preserve the bone-implant relationship for a long time without causing biological destruction; Optimum distribution of the stresses resulting from the forces acting on the prosthetic superstructures to the bone tissue should be ensured.
