Jawbone Melting

The anatomical function of the jawbone is related to the ability to perform chewing functions related to the presence on the teeth. Jaw bone melting in time due to health reasons to lose their function and actively fail to fulfill the task is to shrink.

In public and medical literature, the disease, known as jawbone melting, can occur at any age and is a factor that significantly affects one's life standards and nutrition.

Causes of Jawbone Melting

As there are many reasons for the dissection of the jawbone, the main reason is the removal of the teeth on the jawbone.

If the tooth roots that are connected to the jawbone are withdrawn, the jawbone melting will continue throughout life in the first two months following the extraction of the teeth, which will cause serious cavities in the jawbone.

Melting of the jawbone other than tooth extraction may cause melting of the jawbone locally due to the cause of the infection or the cause of the tumor. Peryodontitis disease, bruxism and faulty dental fillings, some of the fixed or fixed prostheses are among the causes of jaw bone melting.

Treatment Methods of Jaw Bone Melting

Among the treatment methods for jawbone melting, the process after tooth extraction, which causes the jawbone to melt, comes first.

In order to prevent the jawbone from melting after tooth extraction, the tooth may be filled with bone powder. Thus, there is no gap in the jaw bone and no melting occurs. Implanting the tooth after tooth extraction also has a similar function with the tooth root to prevent the melting of the jawbone.

Treatment of Peryodontitis and bruxism, which is one of the causes of jaw bone melting, also prevents the melting of the jawbone. Improper fillings and fixation of fixed teeth and proper recovery of the jaw bone function are among the treatment modalities.

Among the treatments used in the dissection of the jawbone are the thickening of the jaw bone and the implantation of the implant.

Jawbone Surgery

The jawbone must be of a certain thickness and height for the implant to be used to stop the jawbone melting. Jawbone surgery can increase and thicken the jawbone to those who have a high melting jaw and is not suitable for implantation under normal conditions. In jaw bone surgery, upper and lower jaws are treated according to need.

In jaw bone surgery, synthetic or block bones can be used to thicken the bone or jaw bone can be formed.

Bone transplants can be made for the required thickness by taking parts of the patient's own jawbone.

Separation and thickening can be performed by separating the bone tissue.

Bone tissue elongation can be achieved or extended with special tools.

Grafting can be done by filling the gaps that occur after tooth extraction.

In jaw bone surgery, your doctor decides the method according to the structure of your jawbone and the anatomic suitability.

Box Technique

Box technique is a method that can be applied to people with or without jaw bone developed in recent years.

The Box Technique, which can be applied to the melting of the jawbone, is a method developed for the renewal of bones. Thanks to this method, bone is added directly to the patient.

Materials used in the box technique are melted and lost in the mouth with the help of materials around the melt is provided to provide a wall to be formed and bone formation using bone powder is provided again. Melting agents are among the most preferred methods since there is no need for a second surgical intervention. It has also been proven in clinical studies that no adverse effects on the body after melting of the material placed in the obtained method are obtained in obtaining the desired bone volume.
