Bone Grafting in Turkey: Cost, Procedure & Treatment

The main criteria for a successful dental implant procedure are the availability of sufficient bone tissues. If you lose your tooth for a long time, bone atrophy will set in, and this worsens after age 40.

If you have insufficient bone tissue to hold the implant, the surgeon will perform a bone grafting procedure in Turkey.

Contraindications and indications for bone graft surgery

Bone grafting may be necessary in the following cases.

  • Bone height is insufficient, 10mm or less.
  • Bone thinning resulting from periodontosis or inflammation
  • Jaw deformities resulting from trauma
  • After jaw tumour removal
  • An installed dental implant fails
  • Insufficient bone tissue volume resulting from fixing a removable dental prosthesis 

You can have bone grafting in the following cases.

  • You have acute inflammatory disease, including stomatitis, rhinitis, and sinusitis
  • You have severe osteoporosis
  • You have a blood clotting disorder
  • You have oncological diseases, including blood-related diseases
  • You have a weak immune system
  • You have mental disorders
  • You are pregnant or breastfeeding
  • You have a severe chronic disease affecting respiratory and cardiovascular systems, including liver and kidney diseases

Advantages of bone grafting surgery in Turkey

For most people, bone tissue starts to reduce from the month after losing a tooth. Undergoing bone grafting early, offers the following benefits.

  • Restore the natural function and appearance of the gums
  • Aid fitting secure dental implants
  • Prevent discomfort when chewing
  • Restore the normal facial structure

Techniques for bone grafting

Three techniques are available for restoring lost bone volume. They include

  • Bone block grafting
  • Sinus lifting
  • Guided bone regeneration (GBR)


Sinus lifting

Sinus lifting is for only one part of the upper jaw and aims to increase the width of the maxillary sinus. It involves placing a bone graft under the membrane that covers the walls of the maxillary sinus from the inside. After the bone graft takes, the bone width will be sufficient to hold dental implants.  

Bone grafting

Bone grafting requires two stages. In the first stage, the dentist will remove small bone fragments from the chin area or a part of the upper jaw and then inserts the bone in the area with insufficient bone tissue.

The dentist will fix the bone grafts with screws and seal them using a special membrane. This technique is suitable for the jaw.


If you have mild bone thinning, your dentist may perform GBR. The dentist will place the material in the implantation areas and place a membrane over it to avoid destruction. You can undergo this procedure alongside dental implantation.

Your dentist will recommend the most suitable bone grafting procedure. Our dentist always opts for the least invasive methods for restoring bone tissue, reducing the healing period.

Materials for bone grafting

How fast a bone graft survives depends on the materials used to augment the existing bone. The following can serve as bone grafting material.  

  • Cattle bone, usually from a bull – this material is less expensive, but the healing period is long, increasing the risk of graft failure.
  • Donor bone from another person – the risk of failure is lower than cattle bone, and healing is fast.
  • The patient’s bone – this is usually the most preferred material, and the survival is fast. It doesn’t fail because the body doesn’t identify the bone graft as a foreign object
  • Artificial bone graft – some artificial materials imitate the patient’s natural bone


Bone grafting to aid dental implant fitting is a surgical procedure. The dental surgeon’s skill is vital to the procedure’s success, and adhering to the doctor’s advice is also important. Complications following bone grafting are rare.

However, the most common issues are:

  • Bone graft failure
  • Wound disruption
  • Bleeding from the operated area
  • Suppuration

Common signs of graft failure include:

  • Severe swelling that prevents opening the mouth, but a mild swelling is normal in the first few days after bone grafting
  • Severe pain for a prolonged period that pain medication doesn’t reduce
  • Elevated body temperature
  • Facial numbness

Contact your dentist for immediate care if you experience one or more of these symptoms.
