Bone grafting for dental implants

Success of bone grafting for dental implants

What is bone grafting?

Bone grafting is a surgical intervention, in which already formed bone from the own skeleton or by a donor is transplanted from one place to another. In most cases we use your own bone because of compatibility and prevention of the risk for the immune system to reject the transplant.

When bone grafting is done, where does the bone come from?

Bone grafting is done with patients where artificial bone cannot be implanted or the patient refuses it. The best transplant is the bone taken from the patient's body, because it heals very quickly. The bone can be transplanted from different areas, as e.g. chin, back part of the jaw, hip or the shinbone. A combination of artificial bone and a transplant is also possible.

How long does bone grafting last?

Bone grafting

Bone grafting is a relatively complex procedure and its duration will mostly depend on the area the transplant is being taken from, transplant size and the position the transplant is being put to. The procedure itself can last from 30 minutes up to a few hours. The procedure is done under local or general anesthesia. More details will be explained during consultation by the surgeon, who will do the transplantation.

What is the success of bone grafting?

Transplantation of your own bone is a procedure with a high percentage of success. Your body generally accepts the transplanted bone. As with any procedure, some complications are always possible, but are generally very rare. If the transplant comes from a donor, success of the procedure is a bit lower, since there is a possibility, that your immune system will reject the transplanted implant.
