Injertos de Hueso, Harrisonburg VA

Principales & Injerto óseo menor

Durante un período de tiempo, la mandíbula asociados con falta de atrofia de los dientes o se reabsorba. This often leaves a condition in which there is poor quality and quantity of bone suitable for placement of los implantes dentales. En estas situaciones, mayoría de los pacientes no es candidatos para la colocación de implantes dentales.

Today, we have the ability to grow bone where needed. Esto no sólo nos da la oportunidad de colocar implantes de longitud adecuada y de ancho, it also gives us a chance to restore functionality and aesthetic appearance.

Injerto óseo de mayor

Injerto de hueso can repair implant sites with inadequate bone structure due to previous extractions, gum disease or injuries. El hueso se obtiene ya sea de un banco de tejidos o su propio hueso se toma de la quijada, cadera. También se realizan injertos de seno para reemplazar hueso en el maxilar superior posterior. Además, special membranes may be utilized that dissolve under the gum and protect the bone graft and encourage bone regeneration. This is called guided bone regeneration or guided tissue regeneration.

Injertos óseos principales típicamente se llevan a cabo para reparar los defectos de los maxilares. Estos defectos pueden surgir como resultado de lesiones traumáticas, cirugía del tumor, o defectos congénitos. Grandes defectos se reparan usando el hueso del propio paciente. This bone is harvested from a number of different sites depending on the size of the defect. The hip is the most common donor site. Estos procedimientos se realizan rutinariamente en quirófano y requieren una estancia hospitalaria.

Sinus Lift Procedure

Los senos maxilares están detrás de sus mejillas y por encima de los dientes superiores. Sinuses are like empty rooms that have nothing in them. Algunas de las raíces de los dientes naturales superiores toquen los senos maxilares. When these upper teeth are removed, there is often just a thin wall of bone separating the maxillary sinus and the mouth. Los implantes dentales need bone to hold them in place. When the sinus wall is very thin, it is impossible to place dental implants in this bone.


There is a solution and it’s called a sinus graft or sinus lift graft. The dental implant surgeon enters the sinus from where the upper teeth used to be. The sinus membrane is then lifted upward and donor bone is inserted into the floor of the sinus. Keep in mind that the floor of the sinus is the roof of the upper jaw. After approximately 4 months of healing, the bone becomes part of the patient’s jaw and dental implants can be inserted and stabilized in this new sinus bone.

The sinus graft makes it possible for many patients to have dental implants when years ago there was no other option other than wearing loose dentures.

If enough bone between the upper jaw ridge and the bottom of the sinus is available to stabilize the implant well, sinus augmentations and implant placement can sometimes be performed as a single procedure. If not enough bone is available, the sinus augmentation will have to be performed first, then the graft will have to mature for 4 months. Once the graft has matured, the implants can be placed.

Ridge Expansion

In severe cases, the ridge has been reabsorbed and a bone graft is placed to increase ridge height and/or width. This is a technique used to restore the lost bone dimension when the jaw ridge gets too thin to place conventional implants. En este procedimiento, the bony ridge of the jaw is literally expanded by mechanical means. Bone graft material can be placed and matured for approximately 4 months before placing the implant.

These procedures may be performed separately or together, depending upon the individual’s condition. As stated earlier, there are several areas of the body that are suitable for attaining bone grafts. In the maxillofacial region, bone grafts can be taken from inside the mouth, in the area of the chin or third molar region, or in the upper jaw behind the last tooth. In more extensive situations, a greater quantity of bone can be attained from the hip. When we use the patient’s own bone for repairs, we generally get the best results.

In many cases, we can use allograft material to implement bone grafting for dental implants. This bone is prepared from cadavers and used to promote the patients own bone to grow into the repair site. It is quite effective and very safe. Synthetic materials can also be used to stimulate bone formation. We even use factors from your own blood to accelerate and promote bone formation in graft areas.

Most of these procedures are performed in the office/surgery center under general anesthesia unless the bone has to be harvested from the hip and then the surgery is performed through RMH’s Outpatient Surgery Center. After discharge, bed rest is recommended for one day and limited physical activity for one week.
