Apicotomy involves minor surgical procedures that remove the tip of the tooth root. As a rule, it is taken only if the treatment of teeth, as well as re-cleaning and filling of root canals, has not achieved the goal, which is to withdraw inflammation around the apex of the tooth root.

Construction of the jaw bone

Polyclinic Medikadent apply only certified products of high quality. Artificial bone in the form of particles, pastes, pellets of various size, structure and properties is effective for filling (augmentation) defects of a certain size and shape.

However, if there is not enough of bone cells to grow into the augmentate, the bone must be taken elsewhere and used to build the missing bone (in the form of a block or ring).

Split crest

If local anatomy allows, it is possible to avoid building bone blocks before placing the implant  (blocks need 4-7 months of integration before an implant can be placed).

In less acute atrophy, bone is extended with special instruments. In more acute atrophy, jawbone is longitudinally split with ultrasonic surgery, expanded and in this space implants are installed.

Sinus lift

Surgical techniques of sinus lift give very good results, depending on the amount of existing bone, it’s about closed or open sinus lift. When the molars of the upper jaw are missing for a long time, sinuses descend. When is missing height of the jaw bone to place the implant, then approaches the technique of sinus lift.
