Solutions to the bone resorption process
The Implantology and Reconstructive Surgery Unit of the Maxillofacial Institute is a pioneer and benchmark centre for bone regeneration and reconstruction techniques. Moreover, Dr. Federico Hernández Alfaro and his team conducted the first clinical study in the world on the use of stem cells for bone regeneration in Implantology. These cutting-edge techniques are described in the books published by Dr. Hernández Alfaro, Bone grafting in Oral Implantology and Controversial Issues in Implant Dentistry.
Bone reconstruction at the Maxillofacial Institute
If the patient lacks tissue, whether it be bone, fat, mucous membrane, skin or any other type of tissue, the maxillofacial surgeon will take a graft from another part of the patient’s body. These types of grafts are known as autologous grafts.
The Maxillofacial Institute works with this philosophy in order to maximise biocompatibility and to promote tolerance between the donor tissue and the recipient tissue, thus avoiding any potential rejection.
