Dental Bone Grafting
Steps Involved in IVF:
Dental bone grafting is a surgical procedure aimed at rebuilding or reinforcing bone in the jaw where bone mass has been lost due to tooth extraction, gum disease, or other oral health issues. The procedure involves the placement of a bone graft, which can be harvested from the patient, a donor, or synthetic materials, into the affected area. The graft serves as a framework that enables new bone growth, thereby creating a stable foundation for dental implants or other oral surgical treatments.
Bone grafting is often considered essential for individuals looking to get dental implants but do not have sufficient bone mass to support them. It is also recommended for those who have suffered significant bone loss due to conditions like periodontal disease. Without adequate bone mass, dental prosthetics like implants may not be stable, leading to complications and failure of the implant. Bone grafting can provide the essential support needed for successful dental work, restoring both function and appearance.
The need for dental bone grafting arises from various scenarios: missing teeth, jaw injuries, or as preparatory steps for more complex dental treatments. The procedure not only restores lost bone but also helps in maintaining the shape and density of the jawbone, which are crucial for dental health and aesthetics.
The duration of the dental bone grafting procedure itself typically ranges from 45 minutes to two hours, depending on the complexity of the case and the area that needs grafting. Local anesthesia is generally used, although sedation options may also be available for those who are anxious about dental procedures. After the bone graft is placed, sutures are used to close the surgical site.
The recovery time for dental bone grafting varies among individuals but generally takes several weeks to a few months. Initial healing of the surgical site can take up to two weeks, during which time patients may experience some discomfort, swelling, or bruising. Complete bone regeneration and integration, however, may take anywhere from three to six months. This period is essential for ensuring that the graft has successfully fused with the existing bone, providing a robust structure for future dental treatments like implants.
It's worth noting that multiple appointments might be necessary to assess healing and to plan subsequent procedures, like the placement of dental implants. Therefore, it's crucial to factor in the time required for preliminary assessments and follow-up visits when considering medical tourism for dental bone grafting.
- Cost Savings: Medical tourism often offers significant cost savings on dental bone grafting, sometimes up to 70% less than in Western countries.
- Expertise: Many countries renowned for medical tourism have highly skilled dental surgeons with international qualifications.
- Advanced Technology: Access to state-of-the-art technology ensures high-quality treatment comparable to what is available in more developed countries.
- Thailand: Known for its world-class dental clinics, particularly in Bangkok and Phuket.
- Hungary: Famous for high standards in dental care, especially in Budapest.
- India: Offers highly qualified dental surgeons at a fraction of the cost.
- Mexico: Proximity to the U.S. makes it a convenient destination, particularly Tijuana and Cancun.
Risks & Considerations
- Quality Assurance: Ensure the clinic is internationally accredited for healthcare standards.
- Travel Constraints: Factor in recovery time and multiple visits, if necessary.
- Language Barrier: Communication could be a challenge, so make sure English-speaking staff are available.
How to Choose the Right Doctor and Hospital
- Credentials: Always verify the educational and professional credentials of the dental surgeon.
- Reviews and Testimonials: Read patient reviews and watch testimonial videos if available.
- Consultation: A pre-procedure consultation should be thorough, with the opportunity to ask questions and clarify doubts.

Frequently Asked Questions
What actually happens during hyperstimulation of the ovaries?
The patient will take injectable FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) for eight to eleven days, depending on how long the follicles take to mature. This hormone is produced naturally in a woman’s body causing one egg to develop per cycle. Taking the injectable FSH causes several follicles to develop at once, at approximately the same rate. The development is monitored with vaginal ultrasounds and following the patient’s levels of estradiol and progesterone. FSH brand names include Repronex, Follistim, Menopur, Gonal-F and Bravelle. The patient injects herself daily.
What happens during egg retrieval?
When the follicles have developed enough to be harvested, the patient attends an appointment where she is anesthetized and prepared for the procedure. Next, the doctor uses an ultrasound probe to guide a needle through the vaginal wall and into the follicle of the ovary. The thin needle draws the follicle fluid, which is then examined by an embryologist to find the eggs. The whole process takes about 20 minutes.
What happens to the eggs?
In the next step, the harvested eggs are then fertilized. If the sperm from the potential father, or in some cases, anonymous donor, has normal functionality, the eggs and sperm are placed together in a dish with a nutrient fluid, then incubated overnight to fertilize normally. If the sperm functionality is suboptimal, an embryologist uses Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection to inject a single sperm into a single egg with an extremely precise glass needle. Once fertilization is complete, the embryos are assessed and prepared to be transferred to the patient’s uterus.
How are the embryos transferred back to the uterus?
The doctor and the patient will discuss the number of embryos to be transferred. The number of successfully fertilized eggs usually determines the number of eggs to be placed in the uterus. Embryos are transferred to the uterus with transabdominal ultrasound guidance. This process does not require anesthesia, but it can cause minor cervical or uterine discomfort. Following transfer, the patient is advised to take at least one days bed rest and two or three additional days of rest, then 10 to 12 days later, two pregnancy tests are scheduled to confirm success. Once two positive tests are completed, an obstetrical ultrasound is ordered to show the sac, fetal pole, yolk sac and fetal heart rate.
Built into this technology there is a microscope with a powerful camera that allows the uninterrupted monitoring of the embryo during its first hours of life. In this way, we can keep a close eye on the embryo, from the moment when the oocyte is inseminated and begins to divide into smaller and smaller cells, until it can be transferred to the uterus.
Orthopedics Stem Cell
Research on mesenchymal stem cells regenerative properties in knee osteoarthritis. In these studies, researchers suggest that Stem Cell Therapy has the potential to regenerate lost cartilage, stop and reverse cartilage degeneration, provide pain relief, and improve patient mobility.
Stem Cell Therapy as an Alternative to Rotator Cuff & Shoulder Replacement Surgery. Stem cell therapy may offer an excellent alternative for patients looking to avoid shoulder joint replacement surgery, as well as many other surgical treatments for shoulder pain.
If you suffer from chronic or acute ankle pain or instability due to arthritis, cartilage loss, ligament strain or tear, or tendon damage, then you may benefit from non-surgical stem cell treatments or stem cell-enhanced surgery.
Patients now have a minimally invasive option. Stem cell therapy for back pain and disc herniations can potentially repair the damaged disc or facet joint, restore function, rehydrate the disc, and ultimately alleviate chronic pain.
Anti-Aging Stem Cell
Stem cell therapy and PRP therapy have been shown to be most effective for: Those in the early stages of hair loss, patients who are not viable candidates for surgery and women who prefer to avoid hair surgery.
Aesthetic Anti-Aging. The Aesthetic Stem Cell Localized Treatment is a non-surgical minimally invasive procedure to enhance the appearance of aging skin and hair restoration. This all-natural technique combines dermal injections of bone marrow or adipose tissue derived stem cells and growth factors.
