Maxillary Mandibular Atrophies Solutions

Solutions for maxillary and mandibular atrophies typically involve various dental implant procedures. Here are some common solutions for atrophic conditions in the maxilla (upper jaw) and mandible (lower jaw):

  1. Bone Grafting:
    • At our center, we avoid this procedure thanks to Galileus Cerclage Sinus® surgery. For mild to moderate atrophies, bone grafting is an option. Bone is harvested from another part of the body or a donor and placed in the atrophic area to stimulate the growth of new bone.
  2. Sinus Lift (Maxillary Sinus Elevation):
    • At our center, we avoid this procedure thanks to Galileus Cerclage Sinus® surgery. In cases where the bone in the upper jaw is insufficient, a sinus lift procedure can be performed. This involves lifting the sinus membrane and adding bone graft material beneath it to improve bone density in the posterior maxilla.
  3. Zygomatic Implants:
    • At our center, we avoid this procedure thanks to Galileus Cerclage Sinus® surgery. If not possible, we also avoid it with the Pterygoid Zygomatic technique. Zygomatic implants are longer implants anchored to the zygomatic bone (cheekbone). They are used when the maxillary bone is severely atrophied, providing an alternative to bone grafts or sinus lift procedures.
  4. Short Implants:
    • These are rarely used and only in extreme cases, always in conjunction with other implants that offer different support and strength guarantees. Short dental implants may be used in some cases, especially when the available bone height is limited. These implants are designed to function in areas with reduced bone volume.
  5. All-on-4 or All-on-6 Procedures:
    • A more comprehensive surgery like Galileus Cerclage Sinus® would be more beneficial. These procedures involve placing a fixed prosthesis supported by four or six dental implants. The strategic placement of implants allows support for an entire arch of teeth, relying less on extensive bone support.
  6. Advanced Implant Techniques:
    • Advanced implant techniques, such as Galileus Cerclage Sinus® mentioned in previous conversations, can offer innovative solutions for addressing atrophies. These techniques focus on strategically placing implants to optimize bone utilization.
  7. Computer-Assisted Surgery:
    • Computer-assisted surgery and digital planning play a significant role in optimizing implant placement, ensuring precision, and minimizing invasiveness in areas with bone atrophy.
  8. Avoiding Autologous Bone Grafts:
    • Advanced techniques, like Galileus Cerclage Sinus®, aim to avoid autologous bone grafts, reducing the need to harvest bone from other parts of the body.

It’s crucial to consult with a qualified oral surgeon or implant specialist to assess your specific condition and recommend the most suitable solution based on the extent of atrophy, bone quality, and individual patient factors. Every case is unique, and the treatment choice will depend on various factors determined during a thorough examination and diagnostic process.

In addressing mandibular atrophies, our approach revolves around utilizing advanced implant techniques that offer superior outcomes compared to traditional methods like autologous bone grafts. Here’s a breakdown of our considerations:

  1. Transverse Implants:
    • We employ transverse implants, strategically placed across the mandible. This technique provides stability and support, avoiding the need for extensive bone grafting.
  2. Blade Implants:
    • Blade implants are another key component of our approach. These implants are designed for efficient insertion, providing secure anchorage in atrophic areas without the challenges associated with autologous bone grafts.
  3. Grid-Like Subperiosteal Implants:
    • Our practice utilizes subperiosteal implants configured in a grid-like pattern. This innovative approach optimizes bone contact, ensuring a strong foundation for the implants. This technique eliminates the necessity for autologous bone grafts and their associated complexities.
  4. Split Crest Procedures:
    • Split crest procedures are implemented to widen the alveolar ridge, creating space for implant placement. This technique enhances bone volume and facilitates the successful integration of implants, avoiding the need for time-consuming autologous bone grafts.
  5. Avoidance of Autologous Bone Grafts:
    • We intentionally steer clear of autologous bone grafts due to their drawbacks, including extended surgical procedures, heightened pain levels, and potential complications. Our chosen techniques are not only more efficient but also offer predictability, minimizing the risk of infections and ensuring a smoother recovery.

By embracing these advanced implant techniques, we prioritize patient comfort, reduce procedural complexities, and enhance the overall success and predictability of the treatment. Our commitment lies in providing innovative solutions that not only address mandibular atrophies effectively but also offer a more streamlined and reliable alternative to traditional approaches.
