Distraction Osteogenesis

Distraction Osteogenesis – for large bone volumes when bone grafting is not sufficient

complex procedureWhere there has been profound bone loss and there is no opportunity to overlay your own bone, or use a particulate bone graft to plump the jaw bone site for dental implants, we would need to carry out a bone growth procedure which relies on using a mechanical device to separate bone sections and pull them apart to grow them (see picture on left). The principle is one of gradually and frequently deforming a fracture site in the jaw. When this is done slowly, the result is bone growth. Most often a simpler procedure is adequate to achieve the desired effect of growth in bone volume.

Our Dental Implant Surgeon would be delighted to assess your mouth and offer bespoke advice for your dental implant needs. You are also welcome to request a free consultation with one of our Treatment Coordinators by filling out the following form.
