All types of bone augmentations (grafting)

In most cases tooth loss leads to bone loss. Bone loss is one of the biggest challenges one can face during dental implant placement. A certain bone volume is necessary in order for the implant to be resistant to chewing forces.

Augmentation is an oral-surgical procedure during which the lost bone is replaced by either the person’s own bone graft or an artificial bone graft. The augmentation process ensures enough bone volume for safe implant placement.

In our office we use state-of-the-art PRGF-Endoret® biotechnology. This biomedical procedure enables an incredible 99.9% implant procedures success rate.

With a special preparation method of the implant area, the so called “biological drilling”, all of the patient’s undamaged bone that contains all characteristics of a “live” bone is collected and mixed with the patient’s plasma. This produces the best possible material for bone augmentation (grafting).

Using PRGF-Endoret® technology ensures:

  • Higher implant treatment success rates
  • Quicker wound healing
  • Decreased risk of infection
  • Decreased risk of postoperative complications
  • Lower rates of pain
  • Less swelling

Postoperative recovery includes:

  • Taking prescribed antibiotics and analgesics
  • Avoiding chewing in the location of the procedure
  • Placing a cold compress on the cheek in order to prevent or decrease swelling
  • Eating soft foods, ice cream and yogurt
  • Avoiding hot foods and drinks
  • Avoiding alcohol and smoking during the following 12 hours
