Bone Grafting 02

What is bone grafting, and why might it be necessary for dental procedures?

Bone grafting Is a surgical procedure in which additional bones are placed to regenerate the resorbed and damaged bone. Bone grafting provides jaw bone density and volume to achieve better dental implant support and stability. The common reasons for jaw bone defects are bone resorption due to prolonged missing teeth, periodontal problems, facial trauma, and congenital bone defects.

Camden high street dental is London’s largest dental clinic that provides premium dental service by the most experienced dental specialists. Our expert oral and implant surgeon carefully diagnoses the condition and then performs bone grafting surgery for successful dental treatment, better aesthetics, and a confident smile.

What are the sources of bone graft material, and how is the graft material obtained?

In bone grafting, the grafting material is augmented from a different source, that regenerates new bone and integrates with the surrounding bone to improve the density and volume of resorbed bone different sources of bone grafting are

Autograft bone grafting

In autograft, the source of grafting material is taken from the patient’s own body’s other parts such as the chin and hip. In this process, the healthy bone is removed from other body parts and surgically placed in the bone-resorbed area. It is the most successful bone grafting technique for better biocompatibility with reduced risk of rejection.

Allograft bone grafting

In this bone grafting technique, the grafting material is taken from other individual bones to get bone density and volume. The donor bone is prepared before placement, to reduce immunological reactions. Allograft is less invasive but slowly integrates with the surrounding bone and takes more time to regenerate new bone as compared to autograft.

Xenograft bone grafting

In this bone grafting procedure, the source of bone grafting material comes from other species such as cows. It’s prepared and sterilized before placement to reduce immunological reactions and improve bone generation.

Synthetic material bone graft

In this bone grafting technique, inorganic biocompatible materials such as calcium phosphate, hydroxy appetite, and bioactive glass are placed to improve the density of resorbed bone.

How grafting bone dental treatment is performed to reduce the risk of complications?

Treatment Plan

In Camden High Stree Dental we carefully monitors the need for bone grafting procedures for better and more durable dental treatment that improves the aesthetics and overall oral health of individuals.

Initial assessment

During an initial assessment, our expert specialists carefully examine oral health and diagnose the need for bone grafting.

To diagnose accurate bone conditions, our dentist also recommends 3D radiographs such as cone beam radiographs and OPG.

They also take detailed dental and medical history to avoid any complications during bone grafting surgery such as diabetes, hypertension, and cardiovascular diseases, in case of any systemic condition physician clearance is required before bone grafting surgery.

For allograft technique, in which grafting materials are placed from other sources, requires some additional immunological screening tests to avoid immunological rejection and complications.


Based on the initial assessment and all the diagnostic findings our expert surgeon explains patient the whole procedure and recovery process of bone grafting surgery. Discuss in detail all bone grafting options their advantages and associated risks, treatment goals and expectations, and also clear patients’ concerns regarding bone grafting surgery.

Treatment plan

Our expert oral surgeon makes a customized treatment plan according to the complete evaluation of bone health and systemic condition and recommends the most suitable bone grafting technique after discussing it with the patient.

The autograft technique is the most successful bone grafting surgery in which grafting material is taken from the patient’s own body.

A treatment plan for additional dental procedures such as dental implant placement and jaw ridge reshaping for placement of restorative prosthetics according to the patient’s dental need.

After ensuring that the patient understands the whole surgical procedure and post-operative instructions to avoid complications, then our trained dental staff schedules an appointment for bone grafting surgery according to the patient’s ease.

Bone grafting surgery

Our experienced oral surgeon starts the procedure after applying local anesthesia and other dental sedatives according to the patient’s requirement

In the autograph technique, the grafting material is surgically removed from the patience own body. In the case of allografts, prepared or sterilized before bone grafting placement.

Before placement material, our dental specialist prepares the recipient site for better integration of the grafted bone with the surrounding tissue.

Our expert oral surgeon carefully placed grafting material to the bone augmentation side and fixed the grafted material with the help of sutures that integrate the grafting material with surrounding tissue and promote healing.

Post-operative care

After the successful placement of bone grafting material, our dental specialist gives necessary postoperative instructions such as taking a soft and liquid diet for one week, maintaining good oral hygiene, and avoiding smoking and alcohol to promote the healing and regeneration of new bone. It will take around 3 months to regenerate new bone and provide a stable foundation for further dental procedures such as implant placement.

Performed subsequent dental treatment

After achieving the desirable width, height, and density of the jaw bone, additional dental procedures are performed according to the treatment plan such as the placement of the implant and reshaping alveolar for restorative prosthetic placement.

Bone grafting is a surgical process to gain bone density to provide support and a stable foundation for dental implant placement. It contours the jaw bone and corrects facial asymmetry to restore overall aesthetics and functional needs.

I would really recommend this Dental Practice. Dr Kolar is a very attentive dentist who cares about the you as a person as well as about the health of your teeth and gums. He takes time to explain the processes he is leading you through, explains how your dental health has progressed over time and encourages you to take care of your teeth. For the first time in my life I look forward to coming to the dentist!

Toby R.

I have been registered at this dental practice now, for just over 15 years. Throughout that whole period, I have been lucky enough to have been looked after by the wonderful, and patient, Dr Prasad. He has covered many procedures in my mouth, from extraction, and root canal, right up to the most recent procedure, Composite bonding of my broken two front teeth. Do not hesitate to register at this practise, as you will be looked after with care and consideration.

Thank you Dr Prasao

Very friendly

During the lockdown period I was able to see Dr Irfan for a dental emergency I had. I’m so grateful that they have been available throughout this. Gillian the practice manager contacted me and offered me an appointment the same day. I am a long standing patient at this practice and cannot thank them enough for great service they have provided to me throughout the years. Great dentist, staff and management. Thank you all so much.

Susan L.

The Dental Care Center has been an excellent dentist surgery that I have been attending as a patient for many years. When I was young I didn’t have a pleasant experience with my local dentist on more than one occasion. I found the dentist at Camden dental care center very reassuring and comforting. The management and reception were also very welcoming.

Stewart S.

Really efficient service and friendly helpful staff, clean and fresh environment

Stephanie P.

Great desk staff and Dentists. Excellent with young children.

Spencer M.

Brilliant service from Dr Mansi Patel – she ensured I was well informed regarding my dental issues and spent a whole consultation discussing my dental history and reviewing my previous scans. She provided the means to communicate out of hours, if I had any further queries. She demonstrated empathy and encouraged collaborative decision making throughout. This is a refreshing approach, speaking from someone who’s a healthcare professional. Would recommend!

Sonia M.

I had a wonderful experience at Camden High Street Dental Practice. Dr Mani Nasir is fantastic, he listened to me, had my best interests at heart and delivered excellent and professional care. Dr Mani & his nurse Kawtar are an amazing team! I also felt very safe with the measures the practice has put in place in light of covid-19. Thank you!
