What is Bone Grafting?

Replace Bone and Promote New Bone Growth

Dental bone grafting refers to a type of surgery that rebuilds bone missing after a tooth extraction or due to missing teeth. Once a tooth is removed, you’re left with a socket or defect. Over time, if a tooth hasn’t been placed, you may suffer from bone loss. This can impact the chances of receiving a dental implant. Sometimes, bone reconstruction is necessary in order to properly reconstruct an area with a dental implant. A bone graft helps to minimize bone loss and preserve as much bone as possible. This enables us to place an appropriate implant after healing. At ProSmile Dental Implant Center, we believe bone is the foundation of good teeth and a great smile. Therefore, rebuilding and maintaining bone is optimal for long-term results. Book a consult today or keep reading to learn more about bone grafting.

Who Qualifies for Bone Grafting?

Many patients need bone grafts for their dental implants, which are used to securely support restorations that replace missing teeth. However, there are other reasons you may need bone grafting. Drs. Amogh Velangi and Akhil Mehta at ProSmile Dental Implant Center in Scottsdale, AZ, often recommend bone graft surgery at the same time a tooth is removed. This step, which is easy to do after removing the tooth, encourages the tooth socket to heal faster and keeps bone in the area more stable. Additional reasons you may be a candidate are:

  • You may be currently missing teeth
  • You plan to get dental extractions in the future
  • You’re considering dental implants or need to replace missing teeth
  • Tried to get dental implants and was told they are not a candidate

Restore The Foundation Of Your Smile

number 1


Tooth loss causes the bone in the jaw to decay, which can affect nearby teeth. If left unchecked, you may be facing future tooth loss or orthodontic issues. A bone graft will secure the empty socket and can help stabilize bone around the remaining teeth.

number 2


For dental implants to be successful, they need to be inserted in healthy, viable bone. A bone graft can rebuild lost bone and help you qualify for implants. Dental implants, which act like tooth roots, will also protect your jaw from future bone loss.

number 3


Bone grafting replaces lost bone and helps kickstart your body's own natural bone-making processes in the jawbone. As the bone graft stimulates new tissue, it bridges gaps and restores bone strength to your jaw. 

number 4


By encouraging new bone to grow, bone grafting also helps maintain your facial features and can correct changes that bone loss has caused. Bone grafts can also be used to repair defects in the jaw caused by  surgical treatments.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does bone grafting cost?

The cost of bone grafting surgery depends on the type of procedure and the material. On average, synthetic bone grafts cost between $300 and $800. A bone graft using bone from your body is significantly more expensive – closer to $3000. This is due to the need for anesthesia and surgery to obtain the bone. 

Other factors that may affect the overall cost include the initial examination, tooth extraction, and dental implants.

At ProSmile, we customize our bone grafting procedures to your needs. We take a team approach to serving you. Our surgeons collaborate with an in-house tech lab to allow us the ability to make bone grafting affordable. We also conduct advanced bone grafting procedures with full arch or “all-on-4” treatment plans.

Is a bone graft painful?

Bone grafting may sound scary. However, our technique makes the procedure routine and predictable. Our technique determines comfort and success and is handled by advanced board-certified surgeons.

How long does a bone graft take to heal?

Recovery depends on the size of the bone graft as well as age, physical health, and several other factors. Typically, it can take anywhere between one week and three months to recover from bone graft surgery. However, the bone graft itself can take three months or longer to heal. 

Is a bone graft major surgery?

Bone grafting can be major or minor surgery, depending on the procedure needed. Major bone grafting is usually performed to repair defects in the jaw. 

Minor bone grafting surgery is done when the patient doesn’t have enough bone structure to support an implant.

Which bone is used for bone grafting?

The two most common types of bone grafts are allograft and autograft. An allograft uses bone from another person, usually a deceased donor or a cadaver. An autograft uses a bone in your body, such as your hip, wrist, pelvis, or other parts of your jaw. 

Other bone graft materials include xenografts and alloplasts. Xenografts use bone from an animal–cow bone is common, and pig bone is also used. Alloplast is a type of graft that uses synthetic materials.

ProSmile offers various materials natural and synthetic – we have multiple types to fit your needs. Talk to us about what is right for you. 

What is recovery from dental bone grafting like?

Recovery following a bone graft involves caring for the graft while it heals. You should maintain a healthy oral care routine and choose what you eat carefully. If possible, you should try to chew on the opposite side of your mouth to give the bone graft time to heal. 

What are the benefits of getting dental implants after bone grafting?

Following severe bone loss or an infection, it may not be possible to place dental implants at the same time as a tooth extraction. Bone grafting procedures offer the benefit of providing a solid bone foundation for the implant to rest on. However, bone grafts must heal for around 4 months before implant placement.
