Bone Grafting

Jawbone loss, caused by missing teeth, gum problems, or injuries, can lead to facial changes, chewing difficulties, and tooth loss. If you want to address this issue and the problems that come with it, dentists at Peerzada Smiles can perform bone grafting surgery to improve your appearance and oral health.

What is Bone Grafting?

Bone grafting is a surgical procedure performed to rebuild and reinforce bone tissue. It involves transplanting bone material from one part of your body or a donor source to another area that requires additional bone support.

Why is Bone Grafting Performed?

Bone grafting serves various purposes, such as:

  • Repairing fractures that won't heal naturally.
  • Filling bone defects or voids caused by injury or disease.
  • Enhancing bone density and strength.
  • Preparing a site for dental implants when natural bone is insufficient.

Types of Bone Grafts


Dentists use your own bone, often taken from your hip, tibia, or another suitable location in your body.


Donor bone, obtained from a tissue bank, is used for the grafting procedure.

Synthetic Grafts

We do the surgery using laboratory-created or artificial materials, such as calcium-based substitutes.

The choice of graft type depends on your specific needs and the recommendations of our team.

Is Bone Grafting Painful?

Pain and discomfort associated with bone grafting can be managed with anesthesia and prescribed pain medications.

Our surgeons always prioritize your comfort and will discuss pain management options with you before the procedure.

How Long Does It Take for Bone Grafts to Heal?

Healing time varies depending on the type of graft, your overall health, and the specific procedure. Generally, it takes several weeks to months for the grafts to fully integrate and heal.

Are There Any Dietary or Lifestyle Restrictions After Bone Grafting?

  • Tick to a soft diet, avoiding hard or chewy foods
  • Don't use straws and limit alcohol intake
  • Smoking should be avoided as it hampers healing
  • Take prescribed medications
  • Maintain good oral hygiene
  • Avoid strenuous activities
  • Attend follow-up appointments to monitor progress
