Growing new and healthy bone will provide the necessary support for your dental implants.
Your treatment begins with a consultation at Brener Clinic. At this time we will examine your mouth and teeth to determine your suitability for a bone graft.
Brener Clinic takes 3D Cone Beam CT Scans to assist with treatment planning. We also collect other records, such as facial photographs and videos, as well as digital impressions of your upper and lower jaws. A thorough medical history is taken so we can communicate with your doctor and specialist medical team if necessary. This allows us to digitally design the site and account for consequences to your smile and function, as well as to plan the graft surgery.
The bone graft is usually carried out using sedation and local anaesthetic which is applied to the grafting site. A small opening is made in the area where bone is needed. Brener Clinic harvests your own stem cells, incorporates them into the graft material, that is then gently placed within the grafting site, alongside the existing bone.
The graft is stabilized with supporting screws and protective covering or membrane. Brener Clinic includes your own Advanced Platelet Rich Fibrin (A-PRF) in the form of a membrane, and Injectable Platelet rich Fibrin (i-PRF) that assist in the healing and quality of the graft and soft tissue covering.
The area is sutured—stitches will either dissolve or be removed by Brener Clinic in 7 to 10 days, after the graft site has healed.
It will take about 3 - 6 months for the bone graft to be incorporated into your own bone.
Once the grafted area has healed, Brener Clinic re-examines the graft site with a Cone Beam CT scan and 3D planning software to determine the success of the graft and plan for a computer generated surgical guide for placement of the dental implant.
Computer generated surgical guides significantly reduce the surgical risks of dental implant surgery. Often the implant placement can be done with minimally invasive and atraumatic key-hole surgical techniques.
These surgical techniques reduce post-operative swelling and discomfort. After the implant has integrated with the bone, Brener Clinic custom-makes and places your new tooth replacement, for a beautiful reliable new smile.
