Bone graphs for dental implants

Dental implants are strong and will help you eat comfortably. For best results, there needs to be enough bone to fix the implant. Although only a few millimetres of healthy bone is required, some people don’t have enough. Bone grafts provide the answer.

What is a bone graft?

Bone grafts provide a secure foundation to attach your dental implant. It’s a simple surgical procedure that builds up missing bone in your jaw. Generally bone grafts take several months to heal and integrate with the existing jaw bone.

Although, it may be possible to place the graft and implant at the same time. Either way, we will provide guidance for you to ensure your implants are successfully placed and last many years.

What are bone grafts made from?

There are many options for bone grafts:

  • Bone taken from another site in your mouth or your body.
  • Man-made material or protein designed to stimulate your body into producing new bone cells.
  • Bone from a donor. Usually the donor is bovine, but it may also be human. Donor bone is subjected to rigorous testing before being used to ensure it is completely safe.

We will discuss the options in more detail with to find the most appropriate solution.
