Bone grafting is a procedure that regenerates lost bone tissue.
If you need bone grafting, you may be wondering how much the procedure costs in your area. Here’s what you can expect for a bone grafting procedure in Belmont, Massachusetts.
What is Bone Grafting?
During a bone grafting procedure a bone graft is placed into the bone defect where bone is missing. The bone graft then needs to be covered with a membrane to protect the bone graft and allow for undisturbed healing of the bone graft. Sometimes growth factors are added to accelerate and improve the bone regeneration process.
Bone grafts can be necessary around natural teeth when they have lost bone to periodontal disease or to allow for placement of dental implants.
Average Cost of Bone Grafting
For a bone graft around a natural tooth or a dental implant our office fees are roughly $1,000 for the bone graft and another roughly $1,000 for the placement of the membrane to protect the bone graft. If a growth factor is needed there is an additional cost of about $850.
Larger bone grafting procedures such as sinus floor elevations or large ridge augmentations will have a higher cost associated with them.
These fees do not account for write-offs or coverage from your insurance – so your out of pocket expense may be substantially lower.
