Bone augmentation is the restoration or replacement of bone tissue. Only an experienced doctor with a high level of professionalism can carry out such a procedure. In order to perform high-quality and reliable prosthetics, bone tissue must be in sufficient quantity. Only then will there be a good fixation of the implants.
In connection with prosthetics, bone structures begin to collapse after a few months, so it is necessary to carry out measures that will strengthen the bones. Augmentation in dentistry can be simultaneous and preliminary.
Together with implantation, this type of procedure is performed only with insignificant damage to bone tissue. During the operation, the dentist uses an artificial bone substitute. The structure of such a component is destroyed approximately 1.5 years after installation. In some cases, it can be replaced with a bone fragment from its own bone tissue. In the preliminary form of the procedure, bone tissue of animal origin is used.
