German term or phrase: Knochenbefestigungen
and again. I know about pins and plates used to fix bones, but can you use "fastenings" in this context?

Bone anchoring


Explanation:
might fit here:

"What is periodontal disease?
Long-standing gingivitis can turn into periodontal disease. There are a number of types of periodontal disease and they all affect the tissues supporting the teeth. As the disease gets worse the bone anchoring the teeth in the jaw is lost, making the teeth loose. If this is not treated, the teeth may eventually fall out."

HTH,

Serge L.

disagree  Johannes Gleim: eigentlich: Knochenverankerung (im Alveolarknochen). I doubt whether this is meant. The boones can be feets as well as arms

bone attachments


Explanation:
"Gum and Bone Treatment: Gum disease and Periodontal disease is a silent, yet serious condition causing the loss of some holding teeth in the mouth. Untreated Periodontal disease accounts for the majority of teeth lost. We screen patients for this, and if needed, will provide treatment recommendation to help prevent, or at the minimum halt the process of bone loss by deep cleaning or in some cases, surgery. Newer advances allow us to regrow some bone attachments with newer materials and techniques."

bone grafting


Explanation:
You may find some useful information in an article I wrote (in English) on the www.gh2000.com website. Enter as a member, use merry for username and foxy for password, click on multispecialty articles, pick dentistry from the list on the navy blue strip on the left, and look under implants for bone grafting.

orthopaedic fixation devices


Explanation:
should fit the bill if we are still in dentistry.
Pse see ref 1.

In general medicine it becomes more more complicated since there are also external orthopaedic fixtion devices.

Good Luck!
