A bone graft is used to help heal and stimulate bone growth after tooth extraction or injury to the jawbone. It can also be used for facial reconstruction following a serious facial injury.

A bone graft is usually performed by our specialist dentists at the time of implant placement, after tooth extraction or during a revision surgery. The bone graft will be taken from another area of your body, usually your hip or leg.

  • Why you need bone grafting?
  • Benefits
  • Consideration

When there is not enough bone in the jaw or the bone present isn’t strong enough to support an implant, a bone graft may be necessary. We use bone grafting material, naturally occurring and biocompatible, which is then grafted to the jawbone.

It is a minimally invasive procedure

It stimulates bone growth and healing

It helps to maintain and improve the shape of the jaw

The bone graft is placed under the gum to allow it to heal naturally

If you have had a hip or leg operation, you will need to let us know about this

What you need to know about
Bone Graft

With advances, we now have biocompatible grafting materials that can help strengthen the current bone and make an implant possible. Healing time can be reduced and bone growth can be stimulated. The implant is more secure and long-lasting.

This is a synthetic material that is readily available and cheaper than some alternatives. There is also less risk of donor-specific infection.

These are bone grafts that come from your own body. They are considered the “gold standard” of grafts. They have a high content of resident growth factors which make them ideal.

These are bone grafts similar to autografts as they are human in origin but usually come from a cadaver or a bone bank. Some worry about disease but a tight screening process and advancements in processing technology make disease virtually unseen in the U.S.

These are bones taken from another species, usually of the bovine variety. The organic portion has been completely removed so there is zero chance of contracting BSE (Mad Cow Disease).

Asked Questions

Is a bone graft painful?

While bone grafting may sound scary, the procedure is routine, predictable, and should not be feared. Because bone grafting is performed while the patient is under anesthesia, there is virtually no pain during the procedure.

How long does a bone graft take to heal?

Recovery time depends on the injury or defect being treated and the size of the bone graft. Your recovery may take 2 weeks to 3 months. The bone graft itself will take up to 3 months or longer to heal. You may be told to avoid extreme exercise for up to 6 months.

Is a bone graft worth it?

Bone grafting can successfully rebuild bone in areas where it is deficient, ensuring there is enough healthy bone for dental implant treatment. Another reason for having bone grafting is to help improve the overall aesthetics of treatment.

How serious is a bone graft?

Bone grafting is generally safe, but it does have some rare risks. There is also a risk that your bone might not heal well even with your bone graft. Many of your specific risks will vary according to the exact reason for your bone graft.
