What is bone reconstruction for implants in the UK?

The bone reconstruction procedure for an implant in the UK is otherwise known as augmentation. It usually takes between 1.5 and 3 hours - of course, this time is determined by how quickly the specialist has been able to respond to the condition. Importantly, the procedure is carried out under local anaesthetic and is therefore completely painless for the patient. 

First, the tissue is cut so that the doctor can assess the condition of the bone. A bone block is then taken from the site where the dehiscence previously occurred. It is fixed with special screws to the recipient site. Sometimes the transplanted bone has to be covered with bone substitute material. 

The final stage of the reconstruction procedure is to place sutures over the wound. Then comes the recovery time - new bone tissue is formed. 

Obviously, there are quite a few methods used by doctors for the purpose of bone reconstruction. They are tailored to the individual case - so trust your specialist!
