Dental Membranes and Bone Graft Substitutes; A Vital and Widely Used Component of Implant Dentistry

Dental membranes and bone graft substitutes are used in bone graft surgeries. Bone grafting is a surgical procedure that uses bone substitutes to rebuild and repair damaged or diseased bones. A bone graft is a choice for repairing bones almost anywhere in the body. Dental bone grafting is a medical procedure that replaces missing tooth lost due to a dental disease, an accident, or old age. Dental membranes and bone graft substitutes are widely used to provide additional bone support. These substitutes are used for dental bone regeneration in patients affected by some oral disorders, such as oral cancer and periodontal diseases. Dental membranes are used alongside bone grafts to allow cell proliferation during regeneration process.

There are many dental diseases that have the ability to cause bone loss. This is why dental bone grafts are often recommended to replace lost teeth. A dental implant consists of titanium post, which is surgically placed in the jawbone where a tooth used to be. It is a good idea for patients who need dental bridges or dentures to opt for dental membranes and bone graft substitutes since it is the best material available to replace missing teeth. Dental membranes used to replace missing teeth are also good options to deal with dental diseases that cause bone loss. Missing teeth may result from broken or chipped teeth due to different accidents or injuries. Dental membranes are used to cover over the damaged area.

Dental membranes are made from a range of different materials ranging from silicone to carbon fiber. These membranes are then shaped according to the shape of the jawbone so as to look like it has been attached permanently to the bone. They help in filling up the space where a tooth used to be. Another great option for replacing lost teeth is using bone grafts. Bone grafts are actually stem cells taken from the patient's own bone marrow. These bone cells are then injected into the jawbone to be anchored onto the jawbone. They help in the production of new bone cells that strengthen the jawbone. The dental membranes and bone graft substitutes are used to provide optimum results for patients who need dental implants.

The most common use of bone grafting is in application of dental implants, in order to restore edentulous area of a missing tooth. Bone grafts are either used in block or particulated, in order to be able to adapt it better to a defect. Most dental bone grafting surgeries are done to restore bone to its previous form following trauma, gum disease, or tooth loss. Bone grafts can also be used to maintain bone structure after tooth extraction. The preferred approach for dental bone grafting is to use patient’s own bone from the tibia, hip, or back of the jaw. Whereas, dental membranes are a vital and widely used component of implant dentistry. A membrane is a thin collagen sponge that is used to cover the graft initially. This helps stabilize the graft.

Dental membranes act as a barrier against the invasion of cells not involved in bone formation, allowing for the migration of slower-migrating bone-forming cells into the defect sites. Thus, there is an increasing demand for dental membranes and bone graft substitutes worldwide.
