Bone grafting is the practice of healing bones and can be beneficial for dental treatments like implant placements. The procedure will be discussed with you at length with your dentist, and it will also involve a general dental examination, x-rays, and a scale (if clinically required).
What is the treatment?
A bone graft is a completely painless procedure sometimes required prior to a dental implant being placed. The most common need for a bone graft is when a tooth is being removed and replaced with an implant, and the hole from the extraction needs packing with bone. Other instances where a bone graft might be required is when the jaw bone that the implant is being placed into is too thin, or doesn’t have enough height.
Bone grafts are only performed using synthetic or animal bone. The bone is never taken from your own body. Your dentist will be able to identify if you require a bone graft with an x-ray or a CT scan. After the bone graft has been performed, the patient will be required to wait a minimum of six months before any further treatment can be carried out, to ensure that the area has fully healed.
We offer four types of bone graft – Standard, Block Graft, CT Milled Bone Graft, Summers Technique and Sinus Lift. For more details on these variations, please see the ‘Pricing Table’ tab above.
|Standard||Synthetic or animal bone. Created by mixing bone granules with saline and used to pack a hole. Cost may vary up to £900 depending on the size of the bone graft.||£500 per site|
|Block Graft||An entire block of bone is attached to the existing bone. For when the bone ridge is too thin or too low to support a dental implant.||£1,200 per site|
|CT Milled Bone Graft||A block of bone is milled to fit precisely against the bone. A CT scan is performed to identify the shape required, and is created using human cadaver bone.||£2,400 per site|
|Summers Technique||An internal bone graft technique. Raises the floor of the sinus by packing bone through the socket of the implant. Builds verticle height in the upper jaw for implant placement.||£900 per site|
|Sinus Lift||Performed when the sinus is very low and more bone is required to place the implant. A window into the sinus is created and is packed with bone graft material.||£1,200 per sinus|
