Bone Grafting allowed in islam


Assalamu Alaikum, Is dental bone grafting from an animal or a human allowed in Islam? I am only 27 years old with agressive gum disease which means I have about 80% teeth bone loss and need bone grafting. Please advise. JazakAllah Khair.


Waalaykum Salam

For Your Query, I phoned the office of Sayyid Sistani and they said:

If the bone is coming from an Animal, it should be from one that is Halal. And If it’s coming from a Human, s/he should not be a Kafir.

Best wishes
