Inlay Augmentation
In Dentistry, inlay augmentation is understood as a special bone augmentation technique to build up bone in the upper jaw, a so called sinus lift or sinus lifting. The difference between the onlay technique and the inlay technique is explained rapidly: If the inlay technique is performed, the jaw ridge is not augmented in the mouth area, but the bone is set up inwards -in the maxillary sinus. The inlay technique is particularly suited for complete jawbone loss. But if the jaw bone is only degraded in one place, e.g. due to a loss of a single tooth and if there is still a good portion of jawbone around the affected aerea, the onlay technique, also called onlay augmentation, is the better alternative to reconstruct jaw bone. The onlay technique is more risky but achieves a better aesthetic result. Leran more about inlay bone augmentation in the video above.
