RAMUS BLOCK OPERATIONS
Ramus Block surgery is performed to bring the lower jaw bone to the appropriate thickness in implant application.
Ramus Block surgery which is performed under local or general anesthesia is an operation to obtain the ideal bone thickness in implant application. The required cortical bone tissue is taken from the ramus and transferred into the area where the bone tissue is weak, by using micro screws.
The average waiting period is 4 months, and implant treatment is performed once the bone has reached sufficient thickness.
What are the Possible Problems During / After the Application?
- Swelling and pain on the face for a few days after the operation,
- Difficulty to open mouth,
- Possible bleeding for 48 hours,
- In the long term, numbness of the lips and tongue, which is rarely caused by mandibular nerve damage.
