Artificial bone grafting material
The artificial bone replacer is synthetic, is made of alloplast, which contains mainly hydroxyapatite, which is completely biocompatible as it is a natural component of the tooth itself. This material is injected into the desired area. Over a short period of time, it becomes healed and becomes a solid bone in which our oral surgeons can safely implant.
Natural bone grafting material
The natural bone substitute material contains disinfected bones of animals, enriched with appropriate minerals. Thanks to the added ingredients, the material adapts to the patient’s bone and grows in the hole until it finally fills it.
The third type of bone replacement differs significantly from the previous two. In case of bone grafting, oral surgeons would remove a single part of the patient’s own bone (eg from the hip, tibia, skull or jaw) and supplement the missing part. We do not recommend it at the Medicover Dental Clinic.
In most cases, an absorbent membrane is used to cover the bone substitute material to create the best possible environment for tissue regeneration.
The bone replacement substance becomes part of the surrounding area and becomes part of the body during 6-8 months.
