German term or phrase: Anlagerungsplastik
"Es wird deutlich, daß in diesem Fall in regio 21 ein erhebliches Knochendeffizit vorhanden ist. Es empfiehlt sich eine ***Anlagerungsplastik***."

From a text about bone transplantation. I have asked this question once before, but the results were inconclusive, and with more ProZ members now than then, maybe someone will actually know what this thing is called.

I have discovered that a couple of other terms seem to be reasonably synonymous with Anlagerungsplastik - Mundvorhofplastik and Vestibulumplastik. But I can't find any English translations for those terms either! :-( But they provide a little something extra to work with. Vestibulumplastik in particular seems to be in reasonably common use.

I'm really desperate to get a solution to this extremely baffling word, and need it within about 12 hours, so hope someone can "do the business" this time round. TIA for your help.

Bone Grafting Sinus Augmentation | Onlay Grafts | Ridge Expansions | Nerve Repositioning

This page describes several methods of Bone Grafting. These procedures are usually necessary if there is not enough bone available to place dental implants or if any vital anatomy is in the way. Several modalities of Bone Grafting as they relate to Oral Implantology will be discussed. Some of the picture links will underline these discussions with a graphic representation of the procedure, however, these images are mostly surgical images and may be very graphic in nature! Also, it may take considerable time to load all the images if you are on a slower modem connection.

Why Bone Grafting?

Today, Bone Grafting procedures have become almost an integral part of Implant Reconstruction. In many instances, a potential implant site in the upper or lower jaw does not offer enough bone volume or quantity to accommodate a Rootform Implant of proper size or in the proper place. This is usually a result of bone resorption that has taken place since one or more teeth (if not all) were lost. Bone Grafting procedures usually try to re-establish bone dimension, which was lost due to resorption.

If you click on the button below, you can see a succession of lower jaws undergoing several stages of resorption:



Many years ago the lack of bone posed a considerable problem and sometimes implant placement was impossible because of that. Today, however, we have the ability to grow bone where needed. This not only gives us the opportunity to place implants of proper length and width (and for Rootform Implants we always try to go for as long and wide as possible), it also gives us a chance to restore the esthetic appearance and functionality better.

Grafting Material:

With respect to the Bone Graft material used, we have to differentiate between several choices. All materials can be categorized into five different categories:

Autograft or autogenous bone graft
Allograft or allogenic bone graft
Xenograft or xenogenic bone graft
Alloplast or alloplastic bone graft
Growth Factors

Yes, I have a funny feeling that Anlagerungsplastik and Anlageplastik (which was used later in the text) may well be interchangeable with Auflagerungsplastik and Auflageplastik. So thanks Gisela - I think this word may finally be sorted! Appreciate your help.
