How painful is bone graft surgery from your hip for dental implants?

Quite Painful

Head-teeth
It is quite painful and can cause disturbances in your ability to walk for a while. It's also necessary to stay in the hospital for at least a day following surgery. The good thing is that it is almost never necessary any more. If you would like a referral, I know a brilliant implant surgeon in your city who can help you or at least do a second opinion. His consultations are free for implants!

Dr. Kevin Owoc answered:

Which bone graft is better? Is it better to use bone from your hip, or the cadavers bone?

Defect size

Owoc_shield
Based on your question, I would assume that your specific situation requires a significant amount of bone, since your doctor is considering a hip bone graft. Good results can be achieved with different bone types, including cadaver bone. However, the larger the defect size, generally better results will be achieved using your own bone.

Dr. John R. Ayres answered:

Can you have a bone graft from a hip replacement?

What?

Hip_replacement
It's not clear what your question is asking. When you do a hip replacement, a bone braft may be carried out to supplement inadequate bone loss. Frequently your native femoral head, which would other wise be removed and discarded, is morselized and used to fill in cysts or other voids. A hip replacement is an artificial device, so you can't get bone graft from that.

Dr. Steven Morgan answered:

Could having bone removed from a hip for a bone graft cause arthritis?

Bone graft arthritis

Knee_arthritis
Bone grafts are usually harvested away from the hip joint. It is not likely to develop arthritis as a result of the bone graft. Bone graft harvest sites are associated with some pain that can be chronic but generally discomfort not severe or severely debilitating. Bone graft alternatives exist and may be appropriate in certain indications

Dr. Gary Kitzis answered:

When the body has to grow a bone graft, is it normally painful?

Bone graft pain

Bones
The bone graft itself does not cause pain. The discomfort comes more from the complete debridement of the area especially if it was infected before being grafted and the elevation of gum tissue to place membranes to cover the graft. Depending on the graft location and the person's susceptibility, there may also be swelling of the area.

Dr. Dinh Bui answered:

How painful is the recovery process after a bone graft?

Slight to moderate

Bones
The postoperative pain from the bone graft cause by three reasons: 1) infection, 2) uncontrolled swelling, 3) collateral damages during the grafting procedure. A grafting procedure should be carried out with least collateral damages to the area, i.e. the complete flap closure, patency of covering tissue, fixation of the graft. Medication will control swelling, infection, and pain.

There alot of different types and complexities of bone grafts. In general, the recovery is similar to that of a dental extraction. In some cases, a more significant recovery is required.

Can you please tell me, should a bone graft from my hip make them smaller?

Yes, but

Hip
Harvesting a bone graft removes bone, but most of the time you cannot tell. It depends on what part of the pelvis the bone comes from, how much bone is removed, how much soft tissue covers the area (skin, fat, muscle). If a doctor is talking to you about a bone graft harvest, talk to them about your concerns.
