Dental bone grafting is done to restore your bone to its previous form following gum disease, tooth loss, extraction or trauma. This surgical procedure rebuilds the bone underneath your teeth to prepare it for an implant. Depending on your requirements, it may involve taking a small piece of bone from another part of your body to harden or thicken the jaw or upper mouth.
Alternatively, in most cases, it is possible to use synthetic grafting material. Sometimes your dentist will carry out the procedure at the same time as your implant surgery, reducing the number of visits you will need to make to the dentist. This can depend on your exact needs as a patient.
An implant replaces an extracted or lost tooth or teeth. In some cases, the underlying bone may lack enough thickness or density to support the implant.
Using a bone graft, it is possible to strengthen your jaw, so the implant can be placed successfully.
The exact cost of bone grafting for implants can vary depending on the type of graft and work required. For simpler procedures, prices start at £300
