EQUIPMENTPiezoelectric bone surgery using a piezoelectric scaler is a method of performing surgical procedures in dentistry, such as tooth extraction, bone augmentation, and dental implantation. Under the influence of ultrasonic frequencies, even the hardest tissues are dissected, while soft tissues are not injured at all. The method allows surgical operations to be performed safely and minimally traumatic.
For example, if there is a residual ridge resorption, we use the osseodensification method applying versah instruments to perform sinus lifting or increase the alveolar bone volume. These instruments allow thickening of bone tissue, expand the alveolar ridge without bone grafting, or avoid sinus lift surgery.
1. If you don't have enough jaw bone to support an implant, how can you fix this?There are several ways to rebuild bone loss. The most reliable method is considered an increase with the help of the patient's bone (from the donor site, for example, from the corner of the lower jaw, the bone tissue is carefully taken, placed in the future implantation site). This technique gives a positive result. You can also use bovine-derived xenogeneic materials. Such materials also give a positive result. Sometimes we use synthetic materials to repair minor bone defects.
2. How long to wait for a tooth implant placement after bone graft?Depending on the size of the bone defect, the amount and type of bone graft material used, implantation can be performed 4-9 months after bone graft. For example, after open sinus lifting, we place implants 9 months later and 4 months later after alveolar ridge restoration using our autologous bone.
