Dental implants are by far the most comprehensive and realistic method of replacing missing teeth. However, many patients who postponed restorative dental work for a prolonged period may require bone grafting and other preliminary treatments before becoming eligible for the procedure.
Thankfully, the area of dentistry that deals with the challenges of dental implant placement has been making significant strides. Techniques have been developed for increasing these patients’ chances of undergoing dental implantation and achieving excellent results.
Versah™/Densah and Osseodensification
Versah™ LLC now offers a less invasive and faster alternative for the preparation of dental implant osteotomies with Densah Bur technology. Instead of excavating bone tissue, Densah Burs add density to the jawbone through Osseodensification.
Osseodensification is an innovative bone engineering technique used to place a dental implant into a jaw with decreased bone mass. The rotating Densah Bur adds to and re-forms the bone to make it stronger and thicker.
Decreasing Healing Time and Increasing Overall Health
Through osseodensification, a once weakened jaw, unfit for treatment with dental implants can now be reshaped to accommodate the post, while its increased health promotes complete fusion. The implant posts continue to stimulate the jaw and help prevent bone loss. After healing is complete, the patient can have their permanent restoration placed with a crown, bridge or denture.
In the past, many patients seeking tooth replacement with dental implants were deemed ineligible due to bone tissue complications. Today, more and more of these people are finding the help they need through advances in treatment methods.
