  • When do we use implants in dentistry?

Implantable materials derived from the patient and used in modern dentistry include: bone blocks or chips (from the jaw, the chin or the ramus of the mandible), plasma and fibrin PRP and A-PRP (obtained from spinned boold of the patient), MSC stem cells – mesenchymal cells from adult human tissue (obtained from bone marrow, sometimes from peripheral blood).

In what way are implanted bones beneficial?
If the treatment requires significant bone reconstruction, the materials derived from the patient will be most beneficial. Modern dentistry usually uses bone blocks or chips (from the jaw, the chin or the ramus of the mandible).

Why human bones are the best choice?
The best bone material for reconstruction treatment in dentistry is the bone of the patient or other human bone from the tissue bank (if the patient does not agree to use his bones). It is vital that it is a human bone as its composition is important, because only this type of tissue has minerals and collagen, a material of utmost importance when it comes to wound healing.

When do we use implants in dentistry?
The bone in the form of blocks, granule or chips is used in reconstruction of bone tissue losses caused by cysts, tooth extraction or parodontosis, and in reconstruction of the upper and lower mandible required to place implants or prosthetic elements. Dentists also use synthetic bones or bones derived from animals, however, to increase the effectiveness of tissue regeneration, it we should add the missing collagen and then join it with own bone or the PRF factor spun from blood (it contains collagen, elasticin and various growth factors).
