Turned down for
If you’ve been told you aren’t a suitable candidate for dental implants, it could be because your jaw bone is not sufficient to support dental implants. In this instance, there are a few ways we can help you. First, we can consider a bone graft to help increase bone volume. We have also developed techniques which allow us to manipulate and change your existing bone. Alternatively we can also explore different shorter implants which allows us to sometimes avoid the need for extensive bone grafting. Book a Free consultation so we can discuss your options.

Bone grafting for dental
If you've been turned down for dental implants in the past, it could be because you do not have enough volume of bone in your jaw. The dental Implant needs to be completely surrounded by Jaw bone for it to be successful. With a bone graft, we can increase the bone volume in your jaw to make you a more suitable candidate for dental implants.
We can use bone material from several sources including your own bone, synthetic bone (no animal products), bovine and porcine bone products. This will be discussed at your consultation. This procedure can usually be carried out at the same time as implant placement however occasionally the jaw bone will have to be left to heal for a period before we can continue with your dental implant procedure.
Bone grafting will restore your jaw to a suitable form to allow implants to be placed following trauma, tooth loss or gum disease. It can help to maintain your facial structure and prepare your mouth for further procedures like dental implants. If you have been turned down for dental implants in the past due to poor bone, bone grafting could offer a way forward.
Bone grafting is a surgical procedure that will restore bone volume to your jaw to allow implants to be placed. The bone grafting material can be taken from your own body, or we may use a bovine or porcine product depending on your preference. For patients who do not wish to have any bone product from animal sources we can even use a synthetic bone . The procedure varies considerably according to your circumstances but usually is carried out at the same time as the implant surgery avoiding the need for additional surgery.

Frequently asked questions
We’ve answered the most common patient questions below. If you still have questions about your dental treatment, get in touch to book a free consultation.
The bone grafting procedure is usually carried out at the same time as implant surgery so does not add much time to your appointment. Depending how complex your case is we offer sedation throughout the surgical procedure so you will be very comfortable and you won't be in any pain.
The recovery time for bone grafting is usually around a few days. However, for the bone graft to completely heal, it could take closer to 4 months but during this period you will feel totally normal. We will monitor the healing process and advise you on the aftercare steps that will help to keep your gums and mouth healthy while the bone graft heals.
This is a surgical procedure with some risks, including the risk of infection. We will discuss all of the possible risks and complications that might arise during the treatment. The risk of your bone graft being rejected is extremely low, but not an impossibility.
In some cases, bone grafting is required to increase the bone volume in your jaw, but not everyone will require this treatment. We will determine whether you need a bone graft at your initial consultation with the help of a 3D scan.

Feedback from our happy patients
I was made aware of this clinic by way of recommendation in the first instance. I required the services of this clinic and decided to make contact. From my initial query getting in touch with the clinic’s receptionist Kirsty, I was met with a friendly and informative staff team. This followed through the various processes with my doctor, Dr. Aryan Gharakhani and his team Roxana and Samiya who listened to me and explained very clearly what my options were and outlined my treatment plan. They allowed me time to process and inquire further to satisfy myself that I am confident with my plan. To be confident in this process is to impart your trust to your clinician and I am happy to say that Dr Gharakhani did a fantastic job and I am delighted with the results. If the need arose in the future, I would confidently use the services of this clinic and would highly recommend them to others if you or someone you know are looking to regain your beautiful smile. From my experience, you won’t find a more proficient and amiable team.

Just visited the new hygienist Charlene today and had a very pleasant experience, she done checks I’ve never had before and talked me through the cleaning procedure before and during my treatment. Also all the staff that I came in contact were very friendly and helpful I felt comfortable throughout my visit.

My husband Mark just had an implant completed by Dr. Aryan Gharakhani. He was offered a free consultation, and in addition the price he was quoted for treatment was a lot cheaper than everywhere else, and yet the service he received was absolutely top notch. Also very importantly, he didn't have to suffer wasted time, additional expenses and lost earnings faffing about with CT scans in London, because they did the scan right there at the clinic at no cost to him. Every part of his treatment was fully explained to him at every step such that he understood how it was tailored specifically for him. After the implant surgery Dr. Gharakhani gave him his mobile number to call at any time of day or night should he have any concerns. All the staff were notably friendly and professional and we wish them all lasting success. We cannot recommend this business enough - thank you Dr. Gharakhani and team.

Been on a bit of a journey with my teeth recently. My teeth were very worn , enamel missing in places near the gums and discoloured. I felt like I was in safe hands during treatment. I felt like options were made clear. I am now delighted with the results. My teeth feel healthier, stronger and look really good - I’m smiling all the time! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the Implant and Cosmetic Smiles Clinic.
