Fixed Teeth with or without bone grafting
Bone grafting and/or bone augmentation is a surgical procedure that tries to replace and/or regenerate the missing or lost alveolar bone in a patient. This procedure utilizes material from the patient’s own body, a synthetic/artificial substitute, or natural bone substitute. Provided that there is adequate space for the needed bone growth, the body’s bone tissue has the capacity to regenerate the lost alveolar bone.
Bone loss is a common consequence of loss of teeth and chronic periodontitis. The most common cause of bone loss tooth loss left unreplaced, especially multiple teeth. Jawbone preserved through the pressure and stimulus of chewing. When that removed through tooth loss, the bone “resorbs” (reabsorbs) into the body. In the first year after tooth extraction 25% of bone lost, and this bone loss continues on.
Teeth for Cancer Affected Jaw Bone
Rehabilitation in patients with facial defects requires a multidisciplinary approach involving a head and neck surgeon, a maxillofacial prosthodontist and a reconstructive surgeon. Extra-oral prosthetic rehabilitation complements reconstructive surgery in patients with facial defects
Rehabilitation of facial defects generally required in patients who have undergone tumor ablative surgery for head and neck cancers as well as in a few trauma patients. A multidisciplinary approach is required in the care of these patients . In most of the cases of head and neck surgery, planning and preparation for rehabilitation is done prior to the surgery using a coordinated approach.
Patients may develop severe facial defects as a consequence of trauma, cancer surgery or congenital disorders. Craniofacial prosthesis to restore tissue loss in the eye, ear, nose and at multiple sites have been developed over the years to improve the individual’s quality of life and disguise the aesthetic problems created post surgery, These craniofacial prostheses can be retained either with skin adhesives or mechanically with extraoral implants.
