Bad Implants  Ask The Dentist Richard Winter Question:
Failed tooth implant: My upper molar (#15?) has been gone for years.

My doctor decided an implant had failed. He feels that after a period of time, we can try again.

Intially we were going to do a bone implant and in fact he withdrew my blood and had the grafting ready. However, he felt that the bone was ok and didn't need grafting......it failed.

Should he have done the grafting as planned and since that's over with....if I try it again, would you suggest a bone graft and should it be done initially rather than at the same time the implant is put in? ... Visitor from WA

First of all upper second molar implants are difficult to do because of access to the area.

I can't comment on what you have, what you had, proximity to the sinus, reasons for a graft, etc. That is something your dentist should explain to you.

If you need a second opinion, go to a live dentist for x-rays, an exam and an opinion based on facts rather than getting an opinion on a complex issue on the internet. The bone quality, quantity, access, bite are all factors that need to be examined.
