Jawbone condition for dental implants?

Successful implant placement depends on a number of factors, of which, bone volume plays a critical role in the success of an implant. Here are the jaw bone criteria for a successful implant.

Healthy, hard, no damage and still intact jawbone.

Appropriate size, no infection at the implant zone but most patients rarely meet the jawbone requirement. These cases require bone graft procedure to ensure successful implant placement

Bone graft material and cases

 Lack of bone volume and thin gum

In cases of bone or gums deficiency, these two issues must be grafted to ensure that there are 2mm of bone covering the implant and at least 1.1mm of gum thickness around the implant.

For this reason, most cases of implant placement in the cosmetic zone require the additional bone and gums graft.

Bone grafting material

So far, the patient's own bone is still the best material because it contains growth factors that can heal quickly, have live bone cells and limit reaction.

- If bone loss is severe: the grafting material must be the patient's own bone which can be taken from the chin, jaw and pelvic areas.

- If bone loss is mild: artificial materials can be used.

Bone grafting at Nhan Tam Dental Clinic

Many years ago, with traditional techniques, when the bone resorbed, implant placement is not applicable, but with the improvement of modern technology and methods, implant placement is now possible with bone grafting.

At Nhan Tam Dental Clinic, this problem has been resolved and patients can completely have implants and not worrying about bone loss.

Especially at Nhan Tam Dental Clinic with Dr. Vo Van Nhan, a leading implant specialist who has successfully performed many world famous cases (Implementing the two most difficult implant techniques on a patient which is jaw nerve reposition and implant surgery for an anodontia patient)

Implant placement is more complicated than conventional implants. Because, at this time, the jaw do not have enough volume as well as rigidness to support the implant to help the implant sit firmly on the jaw bone. The patient now needs to undergo alloplastic grafts or autografts surgery, the complexity will increase according to the level of the bone resorption of the patient.

The nature of bone graft is a complex and difficult technique that requires you to choose the right clinic with the following requirements:
