Bone Reconstruction and Regeneration

Solutions to the bone resorption process

When we lose or we are extracted a tooth, the alveolar bone (the one that supports the teeth), not receiving any type of mechanical stimulus, as is the pressure exerted by the teeth when chewing, it is reabsorbed, with serious consequences for our health and our facial aesthetics. In the Maxillofacial Institute we propose several solutions against this problem:


Use of Stem Cells

The Unit of Implantology and Reconstructive Surgery of the Maxillofacial Institute is a pioneer and center of reference in the techniques of bone regeneration and reconstruction. In addition, Professor Federico Hernández Alfaro and his team are the authors of the first clinical trial conducted worldwide on the use of stem cells for bone regeneration in Implantology. We see the most avant-garde techniques in the books of Dr. Hernandez Alfaro Bone grafting in Oral Implantology and Controversial Issues in Implant Dentistry.

Plasma Rich in Growth Factors

In the Maxillofacial Institute we offer a plasma treatment rich in growth factors to optimize bone regeneration and improve the result of interventions such as implant placement, bone grafts, alveolar repair, filling of bone defects, breast elevations or periodontal surgery, among others.

The use of plasma is intended to increase the number of platelets and growth factors derived from plasma and stimulate the body's ability to heal body injuries naturally. It has been shown that within a week, the regenerating cells multiply by four.

Autologous Grafts

When the patient lacks any tissue, whether bone, fat, mucosa, skin or any other, the maxillofacial surgeon performs a process of bone reconstruction with a graft taken from his own body. This type of grafts are known as autologous grafts.

At the Maxillofacial Institute we work with this philosophy to maximize biocompatibility, favor tolerance between donor tissue and recipient and thus avoid any rejection.
