Where there's a will, there's a way

Tooth loss or extraction inevitably leads to bone atrophy. After just a few weeks, there is a loss in the bone structure of the jawbone of about 30-50%, and it increases with time. A bone without a tooth is getting weaker. Therefore, the longer we wait with the restoration of the missing tooth (e.g. with an implant), the more likely it will become necessary to rebuild the bone once we decide to do so.

At the Kownacki-Dent Dental Centre, we assume that where there's a will, there's a way. Excellent specialists supported by the most modern equipment can perform real miracles so that no patient is left without help.

One of the most frequently performed surgical procedures in our Clinic is the alveolar bone reconstruction. It is performed even in about 80% of cases of implantological treatment. Most generally speaking, it is a procedure where the lost bone tissue is replaced by a substitute material, with which (after several months of regeneration) bone reconstruction with simultaneous implantation becomes possible. 

Why is this necessary? Because as a result of tooth loss, the bone tissue gradually disappears and the alveolar ridge (i.e. the part of the bone in which the teeth are embedded) collapses. This makes the space for implant placement smaller and weakened.

For regeneration and reconstruction of the alveolar bone, we use natural, mineral material, made of animal bone tissue, called THE Graft. It is an excellent alternative to grafts from the patient's own bone or synthetic materials. It is not only completely safe, but also the most similar in structure and composition to human tissue, and thus easily accepted by our immune system, which accelerates regeneration. Moreover, the bone reconstruction procedure is performed under anaesthesia, so it is completely painless for the patient.

There are situations when the bone tissue deficit is so great that the use of biomaterial may not be enough. Then reconstructive surgerycomes to help. In such cases, at our centre, we perform an autogenous bone graft (using the patient's own bone tissue). In this procedure, we use the Navident system, where under the control of tomography and dynamic navigation we take the patient's own bone and then transplant it into the desired area.

In order to accelerate the regeneration of treated tissues, in our clinic, we use platelet-rich fibrin,which is a component of blood plasma and acts as a natural dressing for wounds. In order to minimize postoperative swelling, we use hilotherapyi.e. cooling with a special mask.
