Augmentation (Jaw Bone Addition) Treatment

The most well-known and valid rule in the body is ‘Unused limbs atrophy.

In this context, when a tooth is extracted and the loads transmitted during chewing are not conveyed to the bone as they used to be, our body perceives this area as an unused space and initiates a policy of depletion related to the nutrition of the relevant area. This leads to a decrease in the vascularization of the region, consequently causing atrophy due to insufficient nourishment.

Today, people are more aware of this situation, and as a preventive measure to prevent bone loss, they opt for implant treatment as soon as their teeth are extracted.

In cases of bone resorption like these, the process of replenishing the weakened area either by supplying bone powder externally or by utilizing the patient's own bone resources to complete the deficient region is called Augmentation.

Bone powders, bone membranes, and fixation pins used as biomaterials have an adverse economic impact on treatment. Furthermore, the waiting period of approximately 6-7 months to complete the connection between the bone powder and the body in the bone addition procedure is also unfavorable in terms of time.

However, despite all its drawbacks, the fact that it enables a fixed dental structure makes Augmentation treatment always seen as an emergency exit option. Despite all its challenges, this treatment provides a compelling reason to endure its difficulties.
