Using the patients own teeth for bone augmentation? Here the advantages:
Fast bone healing and soft tissue response
Immediate attraction of osteogenic cells
Superior long-term esthetics
Excellent, dense bone quality
Dentin and bone are virtually identical in composition
Natural, bio-active, autologous material
Attracts Osteoprogenitors from the site
Undergoes Ankylosis (fusion) with the bone
Contains Growth Factors and BMPs
Strong, slow resorbing scaffold
Bone Grafting is a common procedure during dental implant treatments. Most often ANIMAL bone is used: pig, cow and horse bone!
The smart dentin grinder is used at Atlantic Dental in any case where a patient’s tooth (not root canal treated) has to be extracted and a dental implant is placed. We can, therefore, avoid the use of ANIMAL derived products.
