FAQ

Can an interim denture be used? How can a patient go without teeth for months?

It is not easy to convince the patient to go for three months without teeth, but this is the best option to achieve bone growth. In some cases, if 2-3 temporary narrow implants can be placed in the anterior part and loaded immediately, this can provide the patient with a fixed temporary partial bridge in the anterior zone. Patients accept this more readily than no teeth at all. If this option is not feasible; however, the patient should be supported in managing the entire healing period without teeth, as any removable denture risks the outcome.  In general, noncontact and lack of movement on or of the grafted site is of paramount importance no matter what graft material is used. It is up to the clinician to have a conversation with their patient and guide them during the healing process and oral maintenance following a GBR procedure. Some options to consider are tooth, or provisional implants supported fixed partial (or complete) dentures ( without soft tissue contact and support). For optimum success, NO PROSTHESIS is the recommended approach.

Can removable dentures be used while healing?

The key to any successful graft procedure ( irrespective of material or method used) is stability during the healing period. Using removable prosthetic appliances, and especially appliances with direct contact of the tissue overlaying the graft site, will cause disruption of proper osteogenesis. In the case of Bond Apatite, any movement and pressure of the appliance on the graft site will disturb the compacted cement matrix and will result in diminished graft volume.
