Preparation of a dental bone implant can be a tricky process at first if the implant bone is not strong and stable enough to hold the implants perfectly. The implants will fall out over time and you will have to do the whole process again. If it is not dense enough at first your dentist can fill the gap to make it more stable. Mostly bone implants are implanted near the area of sinuses just above the upper molars. In fact this is the area where in stimulated bone augmentation or bone graft is often carried out.
There are many methods of dental bone implants grafting carried out by dentist. Generally the dental bone implant is taken from bones extracted from other parts of the body. Or the bone can be taken from some suitable donors as well. If the dental implant bone is loose and your dentist can’t fill it where it is stable don’t worry because it will eventually start to grow and the implant procedure will just take a longer time.
This is probably the best technique used today and it will be set in it’s naturally position over time. Both of these techniques can be performed either by stimulating natural growth or by using donor’s bones. One way to promote faster dental implant bone growth is by keeping the tissues away surrounding from the bones of the barrier membranes from each other. This will prevent the growth of tissues which can slow down the growth of dental implant bone.
To make the dental implant bone perfect for implants, different bone types have been in use. Self produced bones, also known as autogenous bones, are taken from the patient. Typically these bones are taken from chin or hips of the person. Another method is known as block bone grafting and this is done using a piece of bone taken from other parts of the body. This is a long process that can take about 3 to 6 months for tooth implant.
Other methods are allograft and xenograft. Allograft refers to the grafting processes using the bones from human donors and xenograft is coined for grafting done with the help of bones from other species. One example is using a bone from a male cow. All of this takes a substantial amount of healing time before the tooth implant can be carried out.
Apart from grafting and growing bones implants, a third option is bone expansion. There are some sophisticated tools for bone expansion. Your doctor just pierces the flesh and brings up other bones in your lower molars at the place where the tooth implant is to be placed. This place is then filled with a special compound that hardens and the bones become strong and stable so that tooth can be held there perfectly.
