When patients come to your office hoping for dental implants, they may be interested in implants because they want the aesthetic and functional benefits these solutions offer. Quite simply, dental implants offer one of the most realistic replacements for missing teeth, both in terms of look and performance.
When a patient is not a good candidate due to bone loss or bone deficiency, patients do not need to be sent away disappointed. For these circumstances, guided bone regeneration allows patients who are not naturally ideal candidates to have the secure foundation needed for implants.
In situations where guided bone regeneration is required prior to a dental implant, where an alveolar ridge is deficient vertically or horizontally, barrier membranes provide a safe, cost-effective and beneficial option. Barrier membranes prevent gingival connective tissue or epithelial invasion in bone regeneration.
Titanium is one of the most abundant elements in the crust of the earth. It is a highly dense and strong material and it does not corrode. With high biocompatibility, titanium is also a good choice for medical and dental implants.
It is therefore no surprise that titanium mesh for ridge augmentation has become one of the most prized options for dentists. This solution is ideal because:
- It has an unparalleled space-maintaining ability, securing bone and offering coverage which allows dental implants to succeed.
- The rigidity is favorable for severe bone defects and for implants.
- It allows excellent blood supply, supporting bone regeneration.
- It is cost-effective when compared with other barrier membranes.
- Bone grafting for dental implants with titanium mesh offers many benefits.
