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.
