Procedure process

The bone graft procedure is carried out safely for the dentists and the patients.

  1. Anaesthesia will be given to the patient before the surgery.
  2. There will be a clean-up of the affected area.
  3. An incision in the gum will be made by the surgeon, this is to separate the gum from the bone so that a new one can be placed.
  4. The new bone will be securely fit in the patient’s mouth with either a dissolvable adhesive or a membrane that has special screws.
  5. The incision is then sewn so that the patient can heal after the procedure. Antibodies will be given to the patient to manage their discomfort or swelling.
