Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth, they are usually titanium posts placed below the gum where you have missing teeth on which a crown, bridge or a denture is placed.
When there is a defect in the jaw bone due to an infection or abscess, we can treat the defect by grafting the area using sticky bone graft made using stem cells Concentrated Growth Factor (CGF). It is a blood derived product of human Bone Marrow Stem Cells from patients own blood.
We also use it for implant treatment. After extracting a tooth that cannot be saved, we pack the extraction socket with bone graft. The bone graft is covered with a false gum, also made out of the patient’s blood. This helps to preserve bone for future implant placement.
