What you should know about bone augmentation

Bone augmentation by Sopron dentist

Bone augmentation is a dental procedure often required before a dental implant can be placed. If there is not enough bone mass in the jaw to securely anchor an implant, this procedure becomes necessary. During bone augmentation, either your own bone or synthetic bone material is added to the area where the implant will later be placed.

We understand that the thought of undergoing a dental procedure can be intimidating, but it's important to know that modern anesthesia techniques make the process as pain-free as possible. The procedure is usually done under local anesthesia, and in some cases, sedation can also be offered.

After the surgery, the bone requires a few months to heal and integrate with the existing bone. Only then can the dental implant be inserted.

This procedure has a very high success rate and enables many people to enjoy the benefits of dental implants, even if they initially lacked the necessary bone structure.

If you have further questions or concerns, it's best to discuss them with your dentist. They can evaluate the best options for your individual situation.
