Bone regeneration at the oral surgery specialists in Munich – helping your teeth and implants stay strong
The key things to know about bone regeneration
What does bone regeneration mean?
When teeth are lost, there is always loss of the periodontium and surrounding tissues as well. As a result, the gums flatten and no longer have the aesthetically pleasing appearance they had before the tooth was lost. If the gap remains for a longer period of time and the bone is no longer under physiological pressure as a result, degradation over time can mean that there is not enough bone available for anchoring an artificial tooth root. In both cases, it is advisable to build up the tissue in such a way that, in addition to an optimal implant site, you can also achieve a naturally beautiful result with the new dentures.
What are the different options for bone replacement materials for bone regeneration?
In modern dentistry, we distinguish between three relevant sources for bone regeneration in the jaw area. Alloplastic materials stand for purely synthetic materials, which are obtained artificially and serve as placeholders for regeneration of your own bone. They have to be broken down by the body and converted into your own bone before you can put any pressure on it. Xenogenic materials come from animal-sourced material. All organic compounds are eliminated via special processes, which is why rejection reactions are extremely rare. Here, too, the material must first be converted into bone by the body. We therefore prefer to use autologous bone, i.e. the body’s own bone material. The bone removal is very effective and bone can be taken from the lower jaw region – where biocompatibility is greatest – without significant effort. We would be happy to advise you at our oral surgery department in Munich.

Bone Augmentation Munich
Bone Augmentation Munich
The human jaw is exposed to significant mechanical stress every day. Because of this, the peridontium in which the teeth are anchored has to be both flexible and robust. An essential part of this system is the so-called alveolus (a.k.a. tooth socket), where the root of the tooth is held in the jawbone.
If for whatever reason, bone mass in the jaw is lost, neither teeth nor dental implants can gain sufficient grip in the affected area. In this case, bone augmentation is necessary to restore the supporting structures of the peridontium.
Causes of bone resorption
Similarly to a muscle, the jawbone recedes if it is no longer naturally loaded. If a tooth is lost, the jaw will therefore recede in the respective location. Forms of dental prosthetics which operate without implants into the jawbone (bridges, removable dentures, etc.), cannot prevent this process. But also inflammation of the peridontium (periodontitis) can trigger degradation of the jaw.
In any of these cases, the oral surgery clinic of Dr. Butz & Partner Fünf Höfe Munich gives to the opportunity to have your jawbone professionally restored through bone augmentation.
