First, the bone will need to be harvested from a secondary site if opting for an autogenous bone graft. This will be performed either under local anesthesia or general anesthesia depending on how much bone is needed. Once the bone is removed, it is then implanted into the new site. The gum is sutured together, and you will need to return in 10 days for a follow-up appointment to make sure the area is healing properly. Bone grafting is a simple procedure with a high success rate and low risk of complications.
