Bone graft

A dental bone graft is a surgical procedure to replace or replenish missing bone in the mouth area.  It may be necessary in several situations.


When is a bone graft necessary?

Indications for bone grafting.

  • After the loss of one or more teeth, the bone that supported them may be absorbed (decrease in volume) over time. A bone graft can be used to replenish the bone so that dental implants can be placed, which replace the roots of missing teeth.
  • In case of periodontal disease (diseases of the gums and the bone that supports the teeth), it may be necessary to perform a bone graft to replenish the damaged bone.
  • In some cases, a bone graft may be used to correct a deformed or misaligned jaw.

Bone grafting can involve using bone sourced from either another part of the patient’s body (autologous graft), a donor (allogeneic graft), a synthetic bone substitute, or commonly, one of animal origin known as a xenograft.

The bone grafting procedure is usually performed under local anesthesia, but it can also be performed under general anesthesia depending on the situation.

Bone healing after a bone graft

Bone healing after a bone graft depends on several factors, including the type of bone graft performed. In general, it takes between 3 and 6 months for the grafted bone to solidify completely. However, healing may vary from patient to patient and some patients may take longer to heal.

It is also important to follow certain rules of care after a bone graft to promote rapid healing, such as:

  • Rest and avoid strenuous physical exercise for the first few days after the procedure.
  • Eat soft food after the procedure and avoid chewing solid food.
  • Brush your teeth regularly to avoid plaque and food build-up around the operated area.


It is important to follow the surgeon’s instructions and make an appointment for follow-up checks to ensure that the transplanted bone heals properly. If you experience pain, fever or excessive bleeding, contact your dentist.
