Augmentation or bone upgrade in the jaw

If the bone is not sufficient for the installation of Straumann ®implants, it is necessary to approach the augmentation. Bone regeneration involves upgrading and creating a jaw bone by transplanting one’s own and/or using artificial bone.

With the loss of teeth, regardless of whether it is a loss due to trauma caused by an accident or degeneration of the teeth that we eventually have to pull out, there is a withdrawal, that is, the loss of the jaw bone at the site of the tooth that we have lost.

With the passage of time, this withdrawal causes a noticeable bone deficiency in this position and it is necessary if we want to replace that tooth with a dental implant, increase the thickness and volume of the bone in this position.

The bone upgrade procedure is called augmentation. We can replace the bone with artificial bio materials or by transplanting a block from the bone mass of the patient himself.

In the Smile dental clinic we use bio materials that, with the additional therapy, very quickly eliminate the problem of bone deficiency. The stem cells that we get by centrifuging a small amount of the patient’s blood and injecting into the position of the bone that we want to upgrade, give excellent results. After the procedure, in 4 to 6 months we have enough bone tissue to apply dental implants.

Send us a panoramic shot of the jaw. From it we will immediately see if the bone deficiency is so great that it is impossible to access the surgical procedure of implantation of a dental implant.

We can send you an indicative offer immediately and after the 3D (CBCT) recording our offer is unchangeable, that is, we make you a guaranteed offer whereby it can only be less than offered, by no means higher. If the doctor did not notice the shortcomings during the diagnostic examination and 3D scans and did not include them with the guaranteed offer, you do not pay the difference, but the binding amount of the offer that is accepted and signed by the patient.

Bone upgrade process


The most common consequence of long-term tooth deficiency is also the most common obstacle to successful placement of implants, which is – bone deficiency. The rate of bone decay in a place where there are no teeth is individual and depends on a number of factors such as diet or genetic predisposition. And when the bone is not sufficient for implant placement, it is necessary to approach the process of upgrading it (bone augmentation or bone regeneration.

Bone augmentation is a routine surgical procedure that achieves the required width and/or height of the jaw bone by transplanting its own and/or using artificial bone. It is possible to do the procedure in both jaws, if there is a minimum basis of the patient’s bone for this. Depending on the size of the defect, the upgrade process can be performed simultaneously with the implant procedure. In more severe cases, it is necessary to perform an upgrade first, and to install the implants only after the time necessary for bone healing.
