Jawbone Grafts

Jawbone Grafts

Dentistry is a constantly evolving field of health. Jawbone grafts, one of the innovative treatment methods, are used for jaw structures that are not suitable for implant treatment. We provide you with the best quality health service in our clinic with the equipment that is renewed every day.

Implant applications, which are frequently used recently to gain dental functions, are often used in all age groups. However, the jaw structure should be able to withstand the implant application.

Not every jaw structure is convenient for implant application. As a result of the deficiency and weakness in the jawbone, the implant should be made applicable. For this reason, jawbone grafts are developed and used for both implant and gingival problems. Most of the time, resumption can occur in the jawbone. The primary function of the alveolar bone, which surrounds the teeth in the jawbone, is chewing and grinding. Over time, this jaw bone loses its function, becomes inactive, and wears out, due to the bacteria that form in the mouth and the lack of teeth due to tooth extraction.

Why Are Jawbone Grafts Made Of?

The jawbone grafts are used for the jawbone that wears out and does not regain its original structure. The prostheses placed on this worn bone become emptier over time and detach themselves away. For this reason, the jawbone must be strong and suitable for an implant and dental prosthesis application. You cannot get efficiency from the prosthesis applied to the unhealthy jawbone.

The weak jawbone structure detected by the dentists is strengthened with artificial jaw grafts and dental treatment is started in that way. Jawbone grafts are obtained from certain parts of cattle and horses. These bones are then ground into grafts and sheets.

In Which Situations Are Bone Grafts Applied?

These grafts are injected by the specialist into areas that are not sufficient for implant placement. In addition, bone grafts can be applied to the layer where tooth extraction is performed, when deemed necessary. In the same way, jawbone grafts can be used for problems in the gums because of tooth inflammation. With the weakening or loss of effect of previously applied implants, jawbone grafts can be used on implant roots as well.
