Box Technique

The box technique is a bone augmentation method utilized when there's insufficient bone for dental implant placement. This method involves creating a cavity in the bone-deficient area with thin plates on the front and back sides, which is then filled with bone graft material. After a healing period of about six months, sufficient bone formation in the area allows for dental implant placement.

The first step involves examination and preparation of the teeth. Then, a retention area is created. Subsequent steps include material placement, shaping, and polishing. Once final checks are completed, the procedure is finalized.

The duration of the treatment varies from patient to patient. For specific information, you can consult with our dentists at Clinic EGO.

Biocompatible materials that pose no harm to health are used. One such material is poly D, L-lactic acid (PDLLA), a polylactic acid-based barrier plate.

The box technique can be used to address dental issues like bone deficiency for implant placement, rather than tooth fractures or reshaping of tooth structure.

The box technique is often used for patients who have experienced tooth loss and are not suitable candidates for implants due to insufficient bone. There are no specific age limits for the treatment.

The box technique is primarily a bone augmentation method and is not typically used to close gaps between teeth. Other treatments such as braces, aligners, or dental bonding may be used for this purpose.

The box technique mainly addresses bone deficiencies for successful dental implantation. While it indirectly contributes to dental aesthetics by making implant placement possible, it is not used to directly reshape teeth or repair fractures.

No, the box technique is not a solution for teeth grinding, which is often a behavioral issue that needs separate management and treatment.

The box technique aids in the placement of dental implants in patients with bone deficiency, facilitating the restoration of missing teeth. This method provides a viable option when other treatments may not be possible.

The box technique may not be suitable for everyone, especially those with certain systemic health conditions or insufficient oral health. Additionally, it requires a healing period before dental implants can be placed. In certain complex conditions, other bone augmentation techniques may be required.
