    What happens after tooth removal?

    Following a tooth extraction, bone and soft tissue tend to shrink if no restorative treatments are planned. Besides poor aesthetic results, the inadequate bone volume could result in a secondary procedure to provide implant stability or may cause a gap under a dental bridge.

    Filling the extraction socket with a bone substitute immediately after tooth extraction can preserve bone volume, which increases the options for successful treatment planning. If a dental implant is inserted soon after tooth extraction, bone substitutes placed around the implant also contribute to bone volume stability.

    Without preventive measures…

    …The socket collapses over time due to the natural resorption of the bone by our own body. The results are poor aesthetics with implant restoration, due to significantly less bone volume or formation of an unattractive gap between the bridge restoration and underlying gums.

    With preventive measures…

    …In form of a ridge preservation – filling the empty socket with a bone substitute material – the volume and shape of the bone is retained over time. Preventive measures with Geistlich Biomaterials allow flexibility in choosing the final restoration (implants/bridge restoration).

    Inflamed Gum – Now What?

    What happens when gum tissue is unhealthy?

    Gum is a protective tissue that surrounds the teeth like a tight cuff. If you have insufficient healthy attached gum tissue, several oral health problems like inflammation, pain, bleeding and loss of bone and gums can occur.

    How can gum tissue be regenerated?

    Dental surgeons can transplant tissue from the roof of the mouth to the gums. Possible side-effects of tissue transplantation are pain, discomfort and complications with healing at the harvest site.

    Geistlich Mucograft® is an alternative to tissue transplantation, for the regeneration of gum tissue with proven clinical success. Collagen matrices such as Geistlich Mucograft® serve as a scaffold supporting your body in generating gum tissue.

    Your dentist will advise you on a suitable surgical approach individually adapted for you.

    When Your Back Teeth Are Missing

    What happens when your back teeth are missing?

    The roots of the back teeth are situated in the sinus floor, a bony structure that separates the maxillary sinuses from the oral cavity. After dental extraction, the height and thickness of the jaw bone diminish. Sometimes the remaining height is as small as 1mm. However, sufficient bone is essential for implant placement, ensuring the long-term stability of your dental implants.

    How can back teeth be restored?

    In the back teeth area, a procedure called sinus floor elevation leads to a higher bone level for a secure insertion of implants. Your dentist will choose a suitable technique adapted for you and your clinical situation.

    Treatment of Larger Bone Defects

    What happens when there is not enough bone available?

    Accidents, dental traumas or advanced periodontitis are just some of many reasons for tooth loss followed by degradation of bone. If the treatment is delayed for too long…

    • The height and/or thickness of the jaw bone diminishes.
    • There is an insufficient amount of bone for implant placement.

    Sufficient bone is essential to ensure the long-term stability of your dental implants.

    How can these bone defects be treated?

    There are two clinical situations that can occur:

    • Insufficient width of the bone wall
    • Insufficient height of the bone wall

    Bone regeneration in larger bone defects requires some form of grafting in order to restore volume, stability and ultimately regenerate bone.
