If your jawbone isn't thick enough or is too soft, you may need bone grafting before you can have dental implant surgery. This is because the powerful chewing action of your mouth exerts great pressure on your bone, and if it can't support the implant, the surgery would likely fail. A bone graft can create a more solid base for the implant.
With bone grafting, a piece of bone is removed from another part of your jaw or your body, your hip, for example and transplanted to your jawbone. It may take up to nine months for the transplanted bone to grow enough new bone to support a dental implant. In some cases, you may need only minor bone grafting, which can be done at the same time as the implant surgery. The condition of your jawbone determines how you proceed.
The price listed is a guide and is dependant on the complexity of the bone graft, this is something our dentist will go through with you when arranging a dental treatment plan.
