While, almost everyone can enjoy natural looking smile with dental implants, patients with severe bone loss may face some problem. However, with the latest technologies, dental implants can have a successful outcome for patients, even with severe bone loss. Here’s an article by Ridgetop Dental’s best dentists in Northern VA that will help you understand what options available to you.
Implant placement using CBCT
With computer imaging and CBCT scan Ridgetop Dental’s restorative and cosmetic dentists in Northern Virginia can map out the bone quantity and quality to see where they can place dental implants using “Guided Technology” and “A Graftless Solution”. This technology allows patients to have extractions, and fixed permanent teeth the same day. This technique is called Teeth-In-Same-Day that need to be performed by well-trained surgeons, like Ridgetop Dental’s expert surgeons in Northern Virginia.
A piece of bone is taken from a number of sources such as the tibia, hip, chin and posterior regions of the lower jaw, which is secured as ‘onlay graft’ to the deficient area. He bone which is placed in the deficient area, gradually becomes a part of that area and dental implant can be comfortably placed on it.
Other modern techniques used
Other techniques include-bone grafting using Platelet Rich Plasma (It uses growth factors from the patient’s own blood), rhBMP (bone morphogenic protein), harvesting patient’s own natural bone or grafting using cadaveric bone and substitutes.
