Maxillary reconstruction

The loss of the teeth implies the reabsorption or atrophy of the tissues (bone and gum) that support them. This reabsorption is directly proportional to the time the patient passes in the absence of their teeth. As a consequence, when planning the rehabilitation with implants, we find a more complex scenario characterized by the absence of volume and lower bone availability.

In these cases, it is necessary to resort to bone regeneration or reconstruction, a field in which our team is specialized and endorsed by a long history. Depending on the degree of bone atrophy, we can place the implants simultaneously on the regeneration or on the contrary we will do it in two phases.

There are very severe cases in which reabsorption is such that there is no bone availability. Before that required several very invasive surgeries, where it was necessary to resort to donor areas such as the hip, chin or jaw bone to graft to the maxillary. In our clinic, for years, we practice a technique that allows us to recreate this lost anatomy in an atraumatic manner by creating formwork with membranes and biomaterials, obtaining predictable results and lasting long- term results. The patient, in a limited situation, can enjoy fixed teeth with the best quality of life.
