How much does dental bone grafting cost?
The costs of dental bone grafting depend on numerous factors: the method of bone grafting, the costs of the operation, the type and the amount of bone grafting material. These depend on the individual: e.g. how many teeth and how much bone mass has to be replaced. Dentistry calculates dental bone grafting costs per unit.

What kind of dental bone grafting methods are there?
There are several kinds of dental bone grafting methods, such as bone augmentation, socket preservation and sinus lift. However, the dentist needs to decide for each patient individually which type of dental bone grafting is most suitable and necessary for his or her case.
Sinus lift is a special type of dental bone grafting, but it is also the most frequent method. The dentist lifts the floor of the maxillary sinus and complements it with bone replacement. This makes the jaw bone larger. This type of dental bone grafting usually takes place within the same operating session as the dental implant placement. The costs for this type of dental bone grafting are approximately 550 € for one jaw side in Hungary.
Where can dental bone grafting be carried out?
In theory, any qualified oral surgeon can carry out dental bone grafting. But it is a good idea to have a thorough look into the oral surgeon’s background. Our clinics and oral surgeons have the right qualifications and experience for dental bone grafting interventions.
What else you can do: nutrition for bone structure
To prevent bone loss (osteoporosis), one should also pay attention to the so-called bone building diet, especially since this disease occurs more often nowadays. Bone structure nutrition refers also to the fact that one should pay great attention to an appropriate daily intake of useful nutrients. Some foods are particularly unsuitable for a bone-building diet such as: white flour, refined sugar, protein, meat products, alcohol and beverages containing caffeine.
On the other hand, there are certain vitamins and mineral nutrients which influence the bone metabolism positively, so that you can develop an ideal bone structure. Such vitamins and mineral nutrients are: Vitamin D, Vitamin C, Vitamin K as well as phosphorus, magnesium and manganese.
