Bone regeneration with growth factors

The regeneration of the jawbone is, in most cases, essential for implant placement. When a tooth is removed, the remaining bone atrophies. Atrophy increases with the years. This makes the placement of an implant difficult or impossible without first regenerating the bone.

There are two methods to regenerate bone:

  • Either a piece of bone is taken from the hip and placed in the atrophic jaw, which involves hospitalization, adverse side effects of hip surgery and a lengthy recovery period / recovery.
  • Or synthetic bone is mixed with growth factors BMP (bone morpho-proteins) from your blood and is placed in the atrophic jaw. This method excludes the hip surgery.

  • The genetic engineering of the past 10 years now allows the bone to regenerated faster, in greater quantity and quality and with a perfect safety margin compared to other methods.
