What Is Bone Grafting?

Bone grafting is a surgical procedure used to augment or regenerate bone in areas where it has been lost or is insufficient.
It is commonly performed in dentistry to prepare the jawbone for dental implants or other tooth replacement procedures.

How is bone grafting done?

The process of bone grafting involves several essential steps to augment and strengthen the jawbone. Although the precise details may vary based on each individual’s case, here is a general outline of the bone grafting procedure:

Initial Consultation

The process begins with an initial consultation with a dental or oral surgeon. During this appointment, the dentist will assess the patient’s oral health, review their medical history, and conduct X-rays or CT scans to evaluate the condition of the jawbone and determine the extent of bone loss.

Graft Material Selection

Depending on the patient’s specific needs and the recommendation of the dental professional, the graft material will be chosen. It can come from various sources, such as the patient’s own bone (autograft), donor bone (allograft), or synthetic materials.


Before the procedure begins, the patient will be given local anaesthesia to numb the area and ensure they are comfortable throughout the bone grafting process.

Incision and Graft Placement

A small incision is made in the gum tissue at the site of the bone deficiency. The selected graft material is then carefully placed into the space where the bone is needed, usually secured with screws, plates, or pins to maintain stability.

Healing and Integration

Over the following weeks and months, the graft material will integrate and fuse with the existing jawbone, promoting new bone growth. This process is known as osseointegration, and it is vital for the success of the bone grafting procedure.

Follow-Up Care

After the bone grafting procedure, the patient will be given post-operative instructions to facilitate healing. Follow-up appointments will be scheduled to monitor the progress of the bone graft and ensure the patient’s comfort and recovery.

Frequently asked questions

Navigating the complexities of bone grafting can leave patients with questions and uncertainties. To ensure you are well-informed, we have curated a comprehensive list of frequently asked questions about bone grafting.

Who are suitable candidates for bone grafting?

Suitable candidates for bone grafting are individuals who have experienced bone loss in their jaw due to factors such as tooth loss, gum disease, or trauma.

Candidates should have sufficient overall health to undergo the surgical procedure and must be committed to following post-operative care instructions to ensure successful healing and bone integration.

An initial consultation with a dental or oral surgeon is necessary to evaluate each patient’s specific case and determine their eligibility for bone grafting.

Will I be able to eat normally after bone grafting?

After bone grafting, you may need to stick to a soft food diet during the initial healing period to avoid putting pressure on the grafted area.

As healing progresses, you can gradually return to your normal eating habits under the guidance of your dental professional.

How long does the bone grafting process take?

The length of the bone grafting process can vary depending on several factors, including the size and complexity of the graft, the patient’s overall health, and the specific type of bone graft performed. In general, the bone grafting process can take several months to complete.

Keep in mind that the healing time may vary from patient to patient, and your dental professional will closely monitor your progress throughout the bone grafting process. They will provide you with post-operative instructions and schedule follow-up appointments to ensure proper healing and the best possible outcomes for your dental treatment.

How can I ensure the success of my bone grafting procedure?

To ensure the success of your bone grafting procedure, choose an experienced dental professional, follow pre and post-operative instructions diligently, stick to a soft food diet initially, avoid smoking and alcohol, attend follow-up appointments, and be patient during the healing process.

Is bone grafting a painful procedure?

Bone grafting is generally performed under local anaesthesia, which numbs the surgical area and minimises any pain or discomfort during the procedure. As a result, patients should not feel any pain while the bone graft is being placed.

After the bone grafting procedure, some mild discomfort or soreness at the graft site may be experienced, but this can typically be managed with over-the-counter pain medications and will subside within a few days. Your dental professional will provide post-operative instructions to help alleviate any discomfort and promote a smooth healing process.

Overall, with proper anaesthesia and post-operative care, bone grafting is a well-tolerated procedure, and most patients find any discomfort to be manageable and temporary. It is essential to follow your dentist’s instructions and attend follow-up appointments to ensure a successful recovery and the best possible outcomes for your bone grafting treatment.

Shaun and Jenny were fantastic.
I came in for a toothache and they were able to fit me in. I'm a nervous patient and Shaun did an amazing job of calming my nerves and explaining the issue and options and then sorted the problem with minimal discomfort.

I'll be back for regular checkups!
