New techniques in alveolar preservation ensure the success of subsequent dental implant treatments, both from a functional and aesthetic point of view.
The alveolar bone forms part of the maxillary bone and is responsible for supporting the tooth sockets and holding the root of the tooth. The loss or extraction of a tooth will cause a reabsorption of this bone, which can lose up to 60% of its height and width in the first 3 years. Regeneration is aimed precisely at preventing this loss, which is why they are carried out at the time of extraction.
The dentists and specialists at Artedental use a system based on the extraction of blood from the patient to obtain autologous fibrin rich in platelets and leukocytes, also known as L-PRF. This technique reduces the healing time and helps bone regeneration to be optimal.
Artedental, in Puerto de la Cruz, was the first dental clinic in the Canary Islands to use autologous material, i.e. the patient’s own material, in this case the patient’s own teeth.
