Onlay Bone Augmentation
Augmentation is a technical term in dental surgery. The term describes various bone augmentation methods for jaw defects. A long illness such as periodontitis may lead to a jaw joint loss that makes a bone set up often necessary. The fixation of dental implants requires a certain bone width. If this condition is not fulfilled the dentist can set up new jawbone with the aid of various techniques. You can find more information on this subject in the videos Distractor, Sinus Lift or Defect Augmentation. Obviously, every technique involves certain advantages and risks. No matter what technique is used, the most important thing is that the new bone setup is only performed when the existing teeth are not inflamed or restored in any way - the absence of leaked tooth fillings, cavities, gingivitis, periodontitis and other diseases has to be ensured. Watch the video to learn more about jaw augmentation.
